Eight Wisconsin high schools make Newsweek Best High School list

When buying a home, good schools can be a benefit at resale, and they are also important, of course, when you are buying with the school-age children in mind. Eight Wisconsin public high schools made Newsweek’s best high school list. 500 schools were ranked.

First on the Wisconsin list is:

Brookfield Central in Waukesha county came in at #174. Brookfield Central is in the Elmbrook school district which encompasses the City of Brookfield, Village of Elm Grove and parts of the Town of Brookfield and City of New Berlin. Go Lancers! (my alma mater)

Mequon’s Homestead High School is #205. It is in the Mequon-Theinsville school district and accordingly serves Mequon and Theinsville in Ozaukee County, WI.

New Berlin West High School  is #325 and is in the New Berlin school district, serving New Berlin, WI in Western Waukesha County.
