Gibraltar Area Schools is a pre-kindergarten through 12th grade district. It serves the communities of Gills Rock, Ellison Bay, Sister Bay, Ephraim, Fish Creek, Egg Harbor, and Baileys Harbor, all of which reflect a tradition of support for academic, athletic, and cultural achievement. A high percentage of the residents are self-employed business people and many residents are involved in service occupations. Located in Northern Door County, Wisconsin, tourism is the main economic base of the communities. Governed by its own Board of Education, the school district serves approximately 580 students.
Congratulations to Gibraltar Elementary School on being named as a 2014-2015 Title I School of Recognition. This award recognizes schools that have demonstrated success in educating students from low-income families. In his announcement today, State Superintendent Tony Evers stated, "These awards recognize the work by students and their parents along with teachers, school administrators, and school staff members to break the link between poverty and low academic achievement". Gibraltar Elementary School is one of eight schools in Wisconsin being recognized as both a high-achieving and high-progress school.
Gibraltar Area School District is pleased to announce that our district and secondary school have exceeded expectations for student achievement this year. In addition, our elementary school significantly exceeded expectations.
