About

With a strong focus on academics, activities and diversity, Rufus King International High School is consistently a top-rated Wisconsin public high school (U.S. News & World Report and the Washington Post). We offer a rigorous pre-university course of study which meets the needs of highly-motivated secondary students. Grades 9 and 10 emphasize the IB Middle Years preparatory program, with students in grades 11 and 12 eligible to earn the coveted IB diploma or individual subject certificates in addition to the MPS diploma. King offers all athletic opportunities and a large number of academic, special interest and social groups.

This is a high school with entrance requirements and entry is granted through the early admissions process. Contact the school or visit our high school early admissions page for more information about that process.
