August 22, 2018 – Ahhh…McFarland!

Thinking about a move just outside of Madison?  Put McFarland on your list! McFarland was recently ranked on’s list of Top Ten Places to Live in Wisconsin.  This ranking was based on amenities, low employment rate, healthy median household incomes and home values! Here are the basics about McFarland – population is 8,209, median income is $70,750, median age is 40 and average home price is $277,600.  


The school district is educationally strong and financially stable.  Enrollment has been consistent between 2,100 and 2,400 students. McFarland schools are large enough to offer an early childhood to year 12 academic program, but small enough to stay focused on each student. The robust summer school program continues the commitment to learning and an impressive 70% of K-8 students participate.  McFarland schools consistently rank amongst the top districts academically in Dane County and in the State of Wisconsin. The school system is vested in the community and the district says a key component to their success is strong parent involvement.
