Village residents are served by the Mount Horeb Area School District, which educates more than 2,000 students in pre-kindergarten through grade twelve. The district operates five schools: the Early Learning Center (preschool and kindergarten), the Primary Center (grades 1-2), the Intermediate Center (grades 3-5), the Middle School, and the High School. Students in all grades are provided with a comprehensive curriculum in art, computer literacy, guidance and counseling, health, language arts, math, media, music, physical education, reading, science and social studies. The goal of the Mount Horeb Area School District is to nurture, educate and graduate students who are knowledgeable and civic-minded, prepared to make ethical decisions, confident and competent communicators, skillful in problem-solving, capable of creative thinking, and career path-motivated. The district also feels it is crucial that students graduate possessing the appropriate skills necessary to succeed in a multicultural global society.
In addition to the public schools, Hearts & Hands is a locally owned, fully licensed preschool and child care program that is a creative and stimulating environment for children in their early years. The nationally accredited Children’s Community School offers Montessori instruction for ages 18 months to 6 years, stressing a well-balanced early childhood enrichment program.
