The Pittsville School District is a small rural school district located in the geographical center of the state of Wisconsin, at the intersections of state highways 80 and 73. It is on relatively flat terrain in what used to be glacial Lake Wisconsin ( a remnant of the ancient melting glaciers). Approximately 860 people live in Pittsville itself while the District's area covers over 364 Square miles and supports a student population, EC/K-12 grades, of about 600. The land surrounding Pittsville is mixed agricultural land used to raise livestock and crops as well as forest products. The primary industries around Pittsville include crop production, dairying, cranberry production and processing, forestry, trucking, the paper industry and the businesses that support it.
The Pittsville School District is served by a five person School Board, a District Superintendent, an Elementary School Principal, a High School Principal, a Business Manager, a School Psychologist, a Technology Coordinator, a Building and Grounds Supervisor, and a full compliment of teachers and support staff. The school system is housed in two buildings: an Elementary School and a High School. The Elementary School is home to Primary (preschool, 4-year old Kindergarten, 5-year old Kindergarten, and grades 1-3), Intermediate (grades 4-6), and Junior High (grades 7-8) level students, while the High School provides for our 9-12 grade students, although our Junior High students also attend some classes there. The High School and Elementary Schools are across the street from each other.
