The Waupaca Learning Center is a beautiful elementary school located next to the Waupaca River near Highways 10, 54, and 49. There are approximately 700 students in our building serviced by approximately 65 regular and special education teachers, numerous teaching aides, three secretaries, and one principal. Our principal at the WLC Elementary School is John Erspamer. The Waupaca Learning Center mascot for the elementary students is a raccoon and we call ourselves the Waupaca Rascals. Our school colors are black and red.
We are a large school and can therefore provide a variety of services to our students. We have an Early Childhood program, 4 year old Kindergarten, full day kindergarten, a science lab, a large IMC/Library, two music rooms, two art rooms, and several computer labs (including ipad and Chromebook mobile labs). We provide after school activities such as Special Choir, an art club, FOCUS, and Destination Imagination. Our school is also open for community events such as scouting and sports. We have a very active parents' group who have been instrumental in providing a wide variety of support for the school. It's a great place to help our students develop "great minds, healthy bodies, and exceptional character."
