The School District of Flambeau is a large, rural district covering just under 400 square miles and includes the Villages of Conrath, Glen Flora, Hawkins, Ingram, Sheldon, and Tony. Twenty-three municipalities make up the School District with property in four Counties: Rusk, Chippewa, Price, and Taylor. The northern end of the District goes as far as the Sawyer County line; with the southern end extending into Chippewa and Taylor Counties.
In 1937 the territory comprising the present school district was made up of twenty-three school districts and parts of six more school districts. Union Free High Schools were operated at Glen Flora, Conrath, and Sheldon. Each of the six Villages in the present District operated either a first or second class state graded school and the rest of the territory was made up of one-room rural schools.
The District became known as the School District of Flambeau in 1961 with the consolidation of the Tony District, which included Conrath and Sheldon, with the Ingram-Glen Flora District. In 2008 a group of Hawkins area residents filed a petition to become attached to the School District of Flambeau and the final ruling on this petition became effective on August 18, 2009.
On May 20, 1997, the electors of the School District of Flambeau approved the building of a PK-12 facility by passing a $7.7 million dollar referendum. Groundbreaking for the building was held on September 13, 1997, with excavation of the site and initial construction beginning in October that year. With favorable weather, excellent contractors, and a tremendous amount of cooperation, the project was completed in December 1998.
The District's use of updated technology assists in providing students with an excellent educational program. With a computer student ratio of 1 / 1.5, internet access as well as equipment such as SmartBoards and Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) Projectors, teachers have the tools necessary to educate students to become competitive, productive members of society.
A member of the Lakeland Athletic Conference, Flambeau's teams have a strong tradition of being very competitive, with the District often times being represented at various State Tournaments.
The District encourages parents and community members to be active participants in the many programs and activities that are offered.
