About

ALBA is proud to be a White House Bright Spot in Hispanic Education. As a 2014-2015 Wisconsin School of Recognition, an honor given to the school by the state for moving students forward academically, all students engage in a rigorous educational program. Positive student climate and behavioral supports at ALBA also garnered a School of Distinction honor from the State of Wisconsin. ALBA School was founded on the conviction that bilingual students can reach their full potential academically, in English and Spanish, when challenged through; rigorous academic studies, the integration of fine arts and the development of critical thinking, problem solving and creative abilities. Self-confidence and self-worth are developed as the students' cultural identity is both recognized and valued through curriculum. Partnerships with local arts organizations provide enrichment opportunities in music, art and dance. Parental involvement is a vital component to the success of our students. Families at ALBA support the school's uniform and no transportation policies in order to maintain focus on learning. ALBA follows the Rufus King/Ronald Reagan calendar.

Families can enroll in this school using the online application at mpsmke.com/EnrollMPS.
