The district serves approximately 280 students in grades PreK-12. Maxwell and Jamesville Hutterite Colonies fall within the Menno District. In addition to academic classes, the school offers several sports including football, basketball, volleyball, track, and cross country. Vocal and instrumental music, as well as drama, FFA, and FCCLA, are a few of the other options available to students.
Classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and each student in Grades 2-12 has their own device to use. High School students are able to have their laptop with them 24X7. Technology plays an important part in the education of students at Menno Public Schools with teachers and students using the available tech tools to teach, learn, and collaborate.
The students, staff, school board, and the community at large will work together to develop and maintain high academic standards and strong co-curricular activities enabling students to become productive members of society and lifelong learners.
