Wildlands School to Represent Wisconsin

By  | 

A local charter school is receiving some national recognition.

The Wildland's school near Augusta will represent Wisconsin at the 2007 National Charter Schools Program Showcase in Washington DC.

Teacher Paul Tweed will present the school as a successful new school model.

School officials look forward to presenting their school, which has only been open for 2 years.

"It's nice that they're recognized for the good that they're doing,” says Augusta School District Administrator Stephen La Fave.

" So often, they don't get the recognition they deserve and here they do. I wish more teachers could get recognition for the neat things they do with kids."

The school is a cooperative effort between the Beaver Creek Reserve and the Augusta School District.

It currently has students in 7th and 8th, and 11th and 12th grades.
