WCEC (Walworth County Education Consortium)
The Elkhorn Campus hosts a Walworth County Charter School. The Alternative High School (AHS) is a creation of the Walworth County Educational Consortium. It is a partnership of Gateway Technical College, Lakeland School, and Badger, Delavan-Darien, and Elkhorn Area School Districts. The school was established in August 1990 to serve 11th and 12th grade students at risk of not graduating. The AHS achieved charter school status in the summer of 2000.
It is the mission of the alternative high school to provide an environment which promotes the academic, emotional, social, and vocational growth and development of those students whose needs are not being met by the traditional school setting.
This prairie, located to the northeast of the North building, was installed in 2009 to help educate students about the importance of utilizing native plantings. The more than 30 varieties here are better able to thrive in our natural conditions. Watch for the abundance of insects and wildlife who use the prairie as a food source.
Fitness Course and Equipment
The course, located to the west of the North building parking lot, is comprised of durable plastic exercise stations along a marked course.
