Language Summit

The Milwaukee Public Schools Language Summit celebrates culture, diversity, and language. This event showcases the success of our bilingual, dual language, immersion, English as a second language (ESL), First Nations, and world language programs. 

Learning a second language can be a valuable career strength. With the demands of the current workforce, a second language can lead to a job that is competitive and rewarding. MPS bilingual and ESL programs maintain a student’s native language while acquiring a second language. MPS immersion schools are some of the best in the nation, with French, German, Italian, and Spanish options. World language programs allow students to learn a second language in elementary, middle, and high school.

Students in MPS schools speak more than 80 native languages. Please enjoy immersing yourself in their cultures and languages! View performances by our talented students highlighting the cultural richness in our schools. Sample delicious ethnic foods prepared by youth in our culinary arts program. Visit our bilingual, immersion, and world language school displays. Select a session to find information about all the great language opportunities in MPS.
