Milwaukee Academy of Chinese Language (MACL) is a K3–grade 8 traditional school that offers various programs to support students' social and academic success. MACL is the first MPS program to offer instruction in Mandarin Chinese. Students receive Mandarin language instruction for thirty minutes each day. This coursework also increases students' global understanding of various Asian cultures and their influence on the global community. MACL also houses the International Newcomer Center, a program that serves recently arrived middle school refugee students. In this program, students learn academic content while simultaneously acquiring the English language.
