Welcome and thank you for visiting our district website!


The Southwestern Wisconsin Community School District Staff is committed to providing a quality education for all students.  Our staff works to instill the critical thinking and communication tools that are required for success into every lesson. Students must work to hone these skills, taking advantage of every learning opportunity offered.


This educational partnership goes beyond student and teacher, it extends to the community. Home and school need to collaborate with one goal in mind: student preparedness. According the to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, people will average over ten jobs between the ages of 18-42. Preparing students for a specific job that may not last more than a few years shouldn't be our goal.

Together we must create reflective learners who can be creative problem solvers, who can work in cooperative teams and who can apply their skills to master new concepts.


Great things happen when people work together for a common goal. Have a wonderful year!



Mr. John Costello  |  ​Southwestern District Superintendent

One Reason
We Are Unique!

the very southwest corner

of Wisconsin. Part of a tri-

the border from Galena, Illinois and Dubuque, Iowa. Our school is made up of students from area communities including Hazel Green, Jamestown, Sinsinawa, and Kieler. To set up a tour of the school(s), contact the district office and we would be happy to show you around!
