The School District of Slinger serves all or part of eight municipalities, including the City of Hartford, the Towns of Addison, Hartford, Polk, Richfield, and West Bend, and the Villages of Jackson and Slinger. Some thirty miles northwest of Milwaukee along U.S. Highway 41, the district is within easy commuting distance of the entire Milwaukee metropolitan area. Local commerce and industry also provide jobs, in addition to, many farms in the area. Neighboring communities are also experiencing major commercial and industrial growth that have also expanded employment opportunities for district residents as Washington County remains one of the the fastest growing areas in Wisconsin. The rate of residential construction continues at an above average pace, particularly in the Village of Slinger and in some rural areas north of the village. School district enrollment projections indicate a slow, but steady growth, as families moving into the district have fewer school-aged children. As a result of this growth, the district built a new middle school in 1995 and expanded and renovated the high school in both 1991 and again in 1998. The district opened the new Addison Elementary School in 2002 and remodeled the two existing elementary facilities in 2003. The school district boasts of clean, safe, functional, flexible, and technologically-updated facilities. And all of this with one of the lowest cost per student in the state. Demographic information about the school district from the 2000 Census is available at:
