My family moved into the school district several years ago. I find the teachers to be excellent at challenging my children. I love that Badger offers high school classes for 8th graders. I have always found the teachers to be professionals and helpful. The secretary guidance counselor and principal were also helpful in my childrens transition to the Badger School District. The band director goes above and beyond to keep the students active in the fine arts program. The coaches have been outstanding as well. Great little community and school district.

I have two children at Badger grades 4 & 10 and I have two children that attend elsewhere. I have found that the upper administration lacks respect for parents and is not as involved with their students as they should be. I have had two instances when I have had to call the elementary school principal during the 2007-2008 school year and was treated like a child when I was just worried about my childs' wellbeing and I had to call the superintendents office and talk to the superintendent during the 2005-2006 school year and again was treated with arrogance. It is the way I was treated that made my decision to enroll two of my children in another school one is attending TCTC next year and I am grateful for that and I am looking into open enrollment for the last child that is left at Badger for 2009.
I attended this school system my entire life. When I attended I thought that we lacked valuable educational tools and extracurricular activities. Since attending college however I have found from comparing Badger to several schools of my classmates that we are an exceptional school district. I was more than prepared for the academic lifestyles of college. The preparation in math is what I truly found exceptional. I was shocked to find that while my basic college math class was equivalent to the algebra I took in 9th grade in our district. I was well aware of our deficiencies however I am willing to exchange Friday night football games for excellent teachers and preparation for college.
