Gibraltar, Sevastopol Elementary rank high on U.S. News & World Report List

Two Door County schools have cracked the top 150 elementary schools in the entire state according to the U.S. News and World Report.


Gibraltar Elementary School is ranked 101st while Sevastopol was placed at 125. The highest in the entire area was Luxemburg-Casco's intermediate school, which came in 50th overall in the state. The publication considered test scores, student diversity, teachers, counselors, and district spending with its data when ranking over 102,000 elementary schools in the United States. It was the first time the U.S. News and World Report ranked elementary schools after previously doing the same for high schools and colleges. Rankings for the area's high schools will take place at a later date.


Sevastopol Middle School ranked even higher than all of the others in the area, taking 3rd among all Wisconsin middle schools.


It comes at a unique time for schools in the area after the public school open enrollment period opened on February 7th.


From Gibraltar Superintendent Tina Van Meer

I would like to take this moment to recognize Gibraltar Elementary School, Gibraltar Middle School and Gibraltar High School for receiving recognition by U.S. News & World Report as Best K-12 Schools. This is the first time U.S. News & World Report has ranked elementary and middle schools. I am extremely proud of our students, families, teachers, support staff, leadership and Board of Education for their outstanding efforts during the pandemic to provide uninterrupted, continuous teaching and learning. It takes ALL of us working together to provide an exceptional Gibraltar Education to our students. I also want to take this moment to thank the community for their ongoing support of our school district. It is my honor and privilege to serve as the Superintendent of this amazing school organization! Go Vikings!
