Notice of Educational Options and Opportunities

Students in the Appleton Area School District are fortunate to reside in a school district that provides many educational options. While strong neighborhood schools are the foundation of our educational programming, Charter Schools have been developed in collaboration with staff and community members to provide curriculum and instructional delivery options for families at all levels (elementary, middle and high schools). Within each school programs exist to personalize the educational program for students.

Below are links to options available for students across the district. We encourage you to explore these options to determine if one of these options fits best for your child. Please also feel comfortable contacting us directly to have your questions answered.
