Mission Statement


Hartland South Intermediate School is a collaborative, creative and innovative learning community, committed to academic excellence while nurturing the development of the whole learner.

We accomplish this by providing diverse learning experiences so that all learners reach their full potential as independent, responsible, life-long learners and contributing members of a global society.

About the School

Hartland South is our intermediate school for grades 3, 4, and 5.  Students focus on application of skills and knowledge using classroom assessments, the common core, and standardized benchmarks.  What is critical to us is that students begin to know themselves as learners and can inquire about resources to support themselves.  We also believe that the climate of our building is based on a growth model, where adults and students are continually learning.

Hartland South has been recognized Nationally for four consecutive years as an Apple Exemplary School. Students use technology tools as resources to learn and demonstrate learning. The school has rich opportunities for all children and is passionate about meeting the needs of each student. At Hartland South you’ll find a special caring group of parents and teachers committed to all children. Hartland South offers a contemporary school with a wide variety of opportunities and services. The staff is a positive professional team, which collaboratively works to meet the needs of all students and strives for continual positive growth driven by student assessment and research.

With all of these components Hartland South and the other Hartland-Lakeside Schools are on track to be regarded as one of the best educational environments in Southeastern Wisconsin. I believe that staying focused on continual improvement and placing children at the center of our decision making process will develop a long lasting vision for the future.

Traditional Comprehensive Classroom

3rd – 5th Grade:

The comprehensive classrooms focus on a core curriculum of literacy, math, and science, as well as environmental education. The comprehensive teachers are highly trained in math, literacy, and science, and collaborate to ensure best practice instruction. An extensive outdoor education component that includes direct instruction into the sciences is an enriching part of the comprehensive classrooms and involves our students in real learning within their DNR recognized forestry.

Our comprehensive classrooms offer a structured framework and differentiate to meet the learning expectations of all students.


Digital Classroom

In a digital world, Hartland/Lakeside understands that many students learn well through the vast technological resources offered by our District. All of our classrooms have access to computers and iPads and incorporate many aspects of learning through technological media. Yet, our digital classrooms extend learning to a global venue where students interact with people from around the world. In addition, they are able to explore places and cultures different from their own environment, and learn firsthand from experts and scientists through a virtual interactive experience.

Yet, one of the hallmarks of our digital classrooms is that they have become a model site of student and teacher learning and experiences that are shared with other staff members. As an example, digital classrooms have incorporated the use of Apple TV, where students can push their work wirelessly onto a large TV screen and where teachers use mobile devices to share videos and other visual learning cues.

Another benefit to the digital classroom is enhanced communication with parents using various technological forms that were not available a few years back. This allows parents to have insights and information into their child’s daily schoolwork and learning expectations. The digital classrooms strive to develop an interactive and meaningful partnership where parents play a daily role with the teacher in their child’s education.


Charter and Magnet Schools

Hartland/Lakeside offers one charter school and three magnet schools across the K-8 grades. The charter consists of a K-2 fine arts school and the two magnet schools offer a 3-5-community learning multi-grade school, and a 6-8 entrepreneurial school. At Hartland/Lakeside, we understand that children learn differently and that the learning environment can play a role in how their engagement and motivation is expressed. Our charter and magnet schools provide alternative learning opportunities, where students can connect their interests to curricular objectives and extend their learning using approaches that work better for them.
