West Bend School District Wikipedia
The district has two high schools, East and West, which share one building. Each school has about 1,200 students. The two high schools were formed in 1970, but proposals for merging the schools have been raised repeatedly since the 1980s. The high schools have different students, teachers, and sports teams, but share an auditorium, music department, gymnasium complex, and natatorium. In athletics, both East and West participate in the Wisconsin Little Ten Conference.
Every three to four years, in partnership with the West Bend police and fire departments, the high schools hold the two-day Every 15 Minutes program for juniors and seniors, which challenges them to think about drinking, driving, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions. In partnership with the city's police and fire departments, a mock DUI crash is held on East Decorah Road.
