Early Childhood through 5th Grade

North Crawford Elementary is part of a beautiful, state-of-the-art PreK-12 facility located in rural southwestern Wisconsin. We are located along State Hwy. 131, between the villages of Soldiers Grove and Gays Mills. The school is bordered by forested ridges, corn fields, and the winding Kickapoo River. Students literally become a part of nature when they walk outside our doors. Students are encouraged to learn stewardship of the land and responsiblilty toward self, school, and community. Through creative instruction of reading, language arts, mathematics, science, art, music, physical education, and technology, our goal is to help students accomplish their personal best, be lifelong learners, and able to have a positive influence on society.
