Welcome To Fontana!!

Nestled in the hills surrounding Geneva Lake, Fontana Elementary School serves approximately 280 students in grades 4K through 8. We currently have two sections at each grade level, with an average class size of 16. The Fontana teaching team and School Board understand the importance of inclusion, and all of our students are taught in the classroom using a co-teaching model.

We also believe in the power of learning outside the classroom and offer students learning opportunities in different environments. For example, our students take care of the gardens located in our Atrium; the 5th graders spend a week at camp each spring during our Outdoor Education program; and our 8th graders have hands-on learning experiences in leadership and teamwork as they attend a day of OWLS (Outdoor Wisconsin Leadership School).

If you have any questions about our district, curricula, or philosophy, please feel free to contact Dr. Norton, Fontana Jt 8 School District Superintendent, at snorton@fontana.k12.wi.us or Mrs. Smithyman, our Director of Instruction and Student Learning, at jsmithyman@fontana.k12.wi.us. We can also be reached by phone at (262) 275-6881. We'll be happy to answer your questions or point you in the right direction for finding answers.

See you at school!
