Bringing big school vibes to little Washington Island

Just because it is the state’s smallest school district does not mean you will not find some of the same fun activities students in other parts of Wisconsin get to experience.


Washington Island School was again named a state finalist for a grant from the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow program, one of seven Wisconsin schools to boast that kind of recognition. Students are working on developing a remote-controlled underwater vehicle to help restore shipwrecks.


The school’s basketball and soccer teams spent the last few months of 2022 going to road games, and it is planning to compete in forensics for the first time this spring.



Principal Tim Verboomen and Director of Business Services Sue Cornell say it is a credit to the staff for helping provide these opportunities.

The district is in the final stages of preparing its operational referendum question for the spring election. It is expected to be published on January 24th if approved by the school board the day before.
