Milwaukee needs Community Schools. Public Community Schools welcome and educate all children, celebrate and engage families, support children’s health and well-being and lift up our communities. Successful Community Schools increase attendance, improve graduation rates, create safe communities, and improve academic outcomes. Community Schools success is based on using these research based strategies:

  • Engaging, culturally relevant and challenging curricula
  • High Quality teaching, not high stakes testing
  • Wrap around supports and opportunities
  • Positive discipline practices
  • Authentic parent and community engagement
  • Inclusive school leadership
