Where We Serve

KIDS RANCH serves a vast rural and scenic area in South Central Wisconsin. The region is primarily dedicated to agriculture and tourism, along with light industry and retail. The four school districts we work with have a combined service area of nearly 850 square miles, located primarily in Sauk County. We also serve the Ho-Chunk Nation of indigenous families within our school districts.


While geographically the smallest district we serve (about 159 square miles), the Baraboo District has the greatest number of students—just over 3,000 in seven schools throughout the City of Baraboo and Village of North Freedom region plus the Baraboo Early Learning Cooperative. The district is in Sauk County.

The Ho-Chunk, also known as Hoocąągra or Winnebago, are a Siouan-speaking Native American people whose historic territory includes parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois. Today, Ho-Chunk people are enrolled in two federally-recognized tribes, the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Kids Ranch serves the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin whose children reside within our four above-mentioned Wisconsin school districts.

The Wisconsin Dells District has 1,644 students in five schools and includes a geographic area of approximately 186 square miles in Sauk, Juneau, Adams, Columbia, and Marquette counties. Due to the size of the district, location of schools, and the presence of heavily traveled highways and roads, the district transports 96 percent of its students to and from school. All or part of the following municipalities are in the district.
