About us

LEAP Elementary School is part of the Watertown Unified School District in South Central Wisconsin. Our school prioritizes a curriculum based on the themes of environmental and agricultural education in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. LEAP (Lebanon Environmental and Agricultural Pathways) integrates these themes into a cohesive learning pathway based on real-world applications. Foundational skills in math and literacy are emphasized and serve as the backbone for hands-on projects and authentic problems that challenge our students to think in creative and innovative ways. Through their work, students will also develop key skills and habits of lifelong learners such as teamwork, responsibility, and critical thinking.

LEAP teachers guide students through the problem-solving process by planning projects that lead to a better understanding and command of their agricultural and environmental surroundings.  LEAP students are able to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop creative solutions for challenges and real world problems while applying the rigor of core academic content in the areas of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.

 

“An understanding of the natural world is a source of not only great curiosity, but great fulfillment.”  Sir David Attenborough, renowned biologist

 

Education has always led to new ideas and innovative solutions in science, technology and the arts – so why not the environment? By providing pathways for our students to learn about renewable energy, habitat restoration, and sustainable living, we are enabling them to be part of the next generation of decision-makers ready to face current and future challenges that await.

 

LEAP Elementary School offers an opportunity for families around the area to be part of a unique learning experience with their child(ren).

 

We encourage all interested families to be part of this exciting school that is part of the Watertown Unified School District! If you live outside our district, please note Open Enrollment requirements.

 

NOTE: LEAP has multi-age/grade classrooms of Kindergarten/1st Grade, 2nd Grade/3rd Grade, and 4th Grade/5th Grade.
