History

Muskego High School was constructed in 1956 at the corner of Woods Road and Racine Ave. Its first elected administrator, Arnold Wicklund, oversaw the school's construction. [2] Prior to the school's construction, many Muskego children attended school in the Milwaukee School District. Much of the history of Muskego High School can be found in a letter sent from Mr. Wicklund's daughter to the current administration.[3]

In September 2003 the high school was completely remodeled, with 155,000 square feet (14,400 m2) added to the building. Facilities that were added include several wings and a performing arts center. The campus also expanded, with approximately 40 acres (160,000 m2) of new athletic fields and green space. Students as well as athletic teams now use the approximately 130 acres (0.53 km2).[clarification needed]
