The Mequon-Thiensville School District (MTSD) is a school district that serves the Milwaukee suburbs of Mequon and Thiensville, Wisconsin. As of 2008, the superintendent is Demond Means.

The district has a ratio of 16 students per teacher.

In recent years, the district has faced fiscal problems as enrollment started to decline and a new state formula was implemented in school funding. After plans for a $7.5 million budget increase were rejected in February 2006,[1] the district hired a local television personality Dennis Krause as a fund-raiser; giving him the title of Community Resource Director.[2]

The district has a 99% graduation rate and 96% of its students go on to higher education.[citation needed] It also has a nationally honored arts and music curriculum. MTSD's Homestead High School football team won the state championship in 2010 and 2012.[citation needed]

MTSD served 3,563 students in the 2012-2013 school year.[3] The students of the district were 82.7% white, 5.8% black, 5.8% Asian, 3.6% Hispanic, 0.06% Pacific Islander, and 0.02% Native American.
