Hawthorne Elementary is nestled in a quiet, working-class neighborhood on the northwest side of Milwaukee. The school is celebrated for rigorous coursework, college and career focus, culture-building programs, and positive behavior interventions. Hawthorne’s work on continuous improvement allows the school to showcase the work done by staff and students. The school has a diverse student population and offers a standards-based curriculum emphasizing developmentally appropriate, focused instruction that promotes academic success for all students.

The school's culture and climate promotes positive behavior and kindness to all. Hawthorne's early start school program includes half-day (morning and afternoon) K3 and all-day K4 Head Start, art, music, and physical education as well as small class sizes of one teacher to 18 students in K5–grade 3 through the AGR program. Hawthorne is supported by a school nurse, guidance counselor, psychologist, social worker, speech therapist, reading and math resource teacher, and full-time physical education teacher. 

Hawthorne offers before- and after-school childcare services (Camp Hawthorne) that provide academic enrichment in reading and math. Our recreation activities include basketball, soccer, flag football, Girls on the Run, and cheerleading. Hawthorne is proud to be recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction as a PBIS School of Distinction for promoting a positive learning environment for all students.
