About

Barack Obama School of Career and Technical Education, located in the former Custer High School building, serves students in a small school setting aimed at high achievement in reading, writing, and math. We offer students a project-based, career-centered and partner-supported education. Our HVAC lab operates with the assistance of our partners at Johnson Controls and Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC). Our new advanced manufacturing lab offers students access to state-of-the-art CNC equipment and computer-integrated manufacturing technology. We match our students to an appropriate career cluster: advanced manufacturing or energy conservation. Obama SCTE also has robotics, welding, wood shop and barber/cosmetology labs. Obama SCTE offers credit recovery and GEDO2 in a personalized blended learning lab on campus.

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