Great Communities

In addition to the tremendous educational opportunities, we are located in a picturesque community adjacent to beautiful Lake Michigan, and just a short drive to downtown Milwaukee. While Mequon and Thiensville are geographically close to a major city and all its cultural amenities, our tax rates are among the lowest in the Metropolitan Milwaukee area. The City of Mequon and the Village of Thiensville are friendly and safe communities with beautiful parks and recreation opportunities with very low rates of crime.
