From the Superintendent


Welcome to the Menasha Joint School District where our teachers, administrators, and staff focus on 'Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day". We offer a comprehensive and rigorous PK-12 instructional program that challenges our students to set and meet ambitious personal goals. Our customized academic delivery model serves to secure accelerated learning objectives for all students.

In Menasha we understand that every child possesses unique talents and skills. That is why we pride ourselves in providing personalized learning opportunities for our students and families. From our highly acclaimed K-12 world language program, bi-lingual school within a school, interdisciplinary classrooms, and extended course offerings at the middle and high schools, our students have many meaningful scholastic choices.

As a learning community with high expectations, we understand the importance of a strong instructional program, but we also know and appreciate how fine arts, athletics, and enriched course offerings support a well-rounded education. Our students are provided with a wide variety of performance opportunities that serve to nurture their leadership, teamwork and creative attributes. Ultimately, our aim is to ensure the academic, social and emotional development students so that they can become responsible, innovative, and productive life-long learners.

Menasha is also considered an area leader when it comes to the integration of technology into daily learning. Technology has become an essential instructional tool that allows us to more efficiently embed engaging and personally relevant learning experiences into our curriculum delivery model. The Menasha Joint School District understands the increasingly pervasive role technology occupies in a student's life; knowing also that digital competencies are critical for success in an increasingly competitive 21st century employment environment. With this in mind, we will be expanding our one-to-one digital learning initiative so that our students are fully prepared for the opportunities and challenges that await them.

Menasha has a long and proud history of excellence. Moving forward, our goal is to continuously exceed our customer's expectations in all areas of our operations.

Chris L. VanderHeyden
