La Follette High School is a public school located in Madison, Wisconsin, on the city's Far East Side. It is a part of the Madison Metropolitan School District. The school is named after former lawmaker and 1924 presidential candidate Robert M. La Follette, Sr. whose nickname was "Fighting Bob". La Follette is one of a small number of schools in the state using the block system. Each class is an hour and a half, with four classes per day. Most classes are completed in one semester. A new set of four classes begins in the spring semester for a total of eight classes per year per student. Students seem to prefer the four block schedule to traditional high school schedules because they feel the day goes by faster and homework is more manageable. It also gives teachers more time with students. On September 28, 2010, the school was visited by President Barack Obama who attended football practice during an unannounced stop.
