COLLEGE & CAREER ASSISTANCE

My name is Julie Schmidt and I have the privilege to serve as the Waupun Junior/Senior High School Principal. This will be my third year at the JSHS. I am incredibly humbled to be able to serve as a leader in the district and community that means so much to my family! My husband, Justin, and I are Waupun graduates and our children, Trey and Brax, are current Warriors! My educational background includes teaching in the Oakfield School District and Waupun School District, as well as serving as the principal of our charter school, SAGES, for three years. I am grateful for all that this community has given to my family, and am blessed to be able to give back by serving others.
Waupun Area Junior/Senior High School is a 7-12 building that is home to more than 850 students. We focus on creating unique paths for students to best meet the needs of each child while meeting state and local requirements. We have a dedicated staff who provide high quality academic instruction, focus on developing relationships with students and families, and support the social and emotional growth of each student.
Our focus remains on disciplinary literacy, or reading and writing, in all content areas. Our goal is to help students develop critical thinking skills that can be applied in various settings and to bring awareness to different types of media that students will be reading and evaluating for reliability even after they leave our building. We also provide multiple opportunities for students in the areas of youth apprenticeship, vocational education, advanced and college aligned courses, as well as information on the availability of Early College Credit and Start College Now which can all be encompassed in a student’s academic and career plan.
Outside of the classroom, Waupun Area Junior/Senior High School offers an array of clubs, organizations, and sports teams for students to join. We take pride in the extracurricular opportunities we offer our students. Student membership supports social skills, collaborative learning, a sense of community and belonging, as well as teaches skills for college and career readiness.
As the principal of WAJSHS, I take an active role, along with our assistant principals and counselors, in guiding the direction of our building and strive to model Warrior Pride through being respectful, empathetic, and responsible.
