Whether you're looking for an early childhood program, an elementary, middle or high school, Milwaukee Public Schools has high-quality options for families. With the greatest variety of schools in the city, we offer educational programs that can¹t be found anywhere else in Milwaukee.
All MPS schools feature strong college- and career-ready curriculum aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Our robust specialty schools focus on AP and IB courses, the arts, bilingual/ language immersion, career and technical education (CTE), gifted and talented classes and more. MPS is home to the nation¹s largest number of public Montessori schools.
The exclusive Learning Journeys connect classroom curriculum to hands-on experiences for MPS students at the region¹s best educational resources such as Discovery World, Junior Achievement Kohl¹s Education Center and the Milwaukee Public Museum. MPS partners with City Year Milwaukee, bringing members into our schools as tutors, mentors and role models. Corps members reach beyond schools to homes to enhance college and career readiness for students in our community.
Successful implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) has reinforced good decision-making, positive behaviors and a healthy school climate - and we have extensive security protocols that continue to make our schools a safe place for students. All of our schools offer art, music and physical education.
