Milwaukee Environmental Sciences Academy (MESA) was established as a MPS non-instrumentality charter school in 2013. MESA is a year-round Milwaukee Teacher Education Center (MTEC) charter school serving students in grades K4-8. The school uses the Expeditionary Learning model to support engaging, environmentally-themed learning projects. Projects are combined with rigorous math, reading and character education programs to put each student on the path to college and career success. The school provides a safe, supportive learning environment, healthy meals and fitness, fine arts programming, and partnerships with families to promote learning. MESA's current contract term ends in 2019-2020.
