Why the Sevastopol School District
Parents want to enroll their children in the Sevastopol School District. It is possible to open enroll your child from another district into the Sevastopol District, but the school does currently have a “waiting list” in a number of grades. So, homes in the Sevastopol School District (Jacksonport, and parts of the towns of Sevastopol, Egg Harbor and Sturgeon Bay) are most often sought after and hard to come by.
The school is known for its student academic achievement, its family-like atmosphere, and as an educator from another district described it, “a place that wraps its arms around a student to assure that student is successful at the highest level possible for that student”.

Hard to Find Homes
With the school district seeming to encompass several towns it would seem there should be a adequate housing options. Not the case. There is generally a shortage of rental options and homes to purchase. When a home that might suit someone looking to bring their children into the school district comes available, it does not linger long on the market.
There are a couple of things you can do as a buyer to be in a position to act quickly when that just-right home comes along:
- Get preapproved for a mortgage loan. You will still need to go through the full loan process after an offer to purchase, and the bank will need to approve the property, but knowing you are preapproved for a mortgage loan gives the seller confidence that you have the ability to purchase and are serious.
- Is there such a thing as the just-right home. Seldom does a home have every feature, need, or want, that a buyer seeks. To help in your decision process make a list of those things the home must have such as number of bedrooms, bathrooms, outdoor space, garage space, etc., and a list of those thing that would be really nice to have but that you could live without or add at a later time.

A National Blue Ribbon School
In 2015 Sevastopol was named a National Blue Ribbon School. Most often a specific school from a district is named, such as an elementary school, a middle school, or high school. In Sevastopol’s case it was a unanimous award–elementary, middle, and high schools.
The U.S. Department of Education describes a National Blue Ribbon School as:
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program
Recognizing Great American Schools Since 1982
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. More than 8,500 schools across the country have been presented with this coveted award. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing an entry or flying overhead is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.

Wisconsin State Report Card
The State of Wisconsin grades schools and issues a State Report Card. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction says this about the State Report Card:
Wisconsin uses school and district report cards to provide information to families about their local schools. The report cards measure important pieces of data that shed light on how a school or district is doing and where it can improve. This information can help families talk with educators about their child’s school experience and engage in local activities to support school improvements.
Sevastopol has exceeded expectations on each of the previous Wisconsin School State Report Cards. In 2016-2017 Sevastopol was the number one ranked 4K-12 school in the state (that’s from among 424 school districts), and in 2017-2018 the Sevastopol middle school was ranked number one!
