The Stevens Point Area Public School District lies directly in the center of the state of Wisconsin, covering more than four hundred square miles. Our boundaries reach to Lake DuBay and the Marathon County Line to the north, the Township of Milladore to the west, the Buena Vista marsh in the south and to the hills of Custer in the east. While being one of the State's largest districts, in both area, and student membership, our district exemplifies excellence in education.
The district adheres to a strong set of academic standards and has put into place K-6 benchmarks. Students participate in regular formative assessments as part of their classroom experience. In addition, students in grades 3-8 and 10 are assessed with the Wisconsin Forward Exam.
Students in our district continually achieve higher percentages than the State average, of proficiency and advanced proficiency in the Wisconsin Forward Examinations. Besides strong academic areas of language arts, math, science and social studies, the District offers three foreign languages (French, German, and Spanish), school-to-work opportunities, family and consumer education, technology business instruction, health, physical education, music, and art instruction. The halls are filled with trophies and plaques highlighting our students' achievements. Every year many of our students receive recognition in art, music and debate.
The District also provides a variety of extra curricular offerings. Drama, service clubs, special interest clubs and a full slate of athletic offerings are available to all students to help complement academic offerings and provide a rich and rewarding educational experience. Our local university, UW-Stevens Point, Mid-State Technical College, the school district and community also share the asset of a rich and diverse culture.
