Success in the Turnaround Model
Milwaukee College Prep Lloyd Street Campus (K-8 Charter School)
Atonement Lutheran School (K-8 Religious Voucher)
Having undergone an intense turnaround effort, Atonement has recently achieved impressive results and is an exemplar for how a commitment to culture and academics can dramatically alter a school's trajectory. Milwaukee College Prep Lloyd is one of three campuses in the high-performing MCP charter network. MCP took over the lowest performing charter schools – one of the lowest performing schools overall – in the state 3 years ago and has transitioned the climate there to one of positive collaboration and high achievement.
Carmen High School of Science & Technology (9-12 Charter School)
Bruce Guadalupe Community School (K-8 Charter School)
Founded 5 years ago, Carmen High School has had great success serving a primarily Latino population on the south side of Milwaukee by emphasizing college and career readiness, high academic standards, and 21st century skills. Bruce Guadalupe places community and culture at the center of their drive to emphasize high expectations and college readiness in a bicultural environment. Both schools use assessment data (EXPLORE, PLAN, ACT, state assessment and local assessments) as key drivers of academic rigor and student achievement.
Focus on Elementary Reading
St. Marcus Lutheran School (K-8 Religious Voucher)
Milwaukee College Prep 36th Street Campus (K-8 Charter School)
St. Marcus has emerged as one of the preeminent religious voucher (Choice) schools in Milwaukee. Emphasizing excellence in students' roles in their family, church, community workplace, and country, St. Marcus is currently amidst an ambitious facilities and enrollment expansion. MCP 36th is one of three campuses of the high-performing Milwaukee College Prep charter network. MCP has been uncompromising in their belief that "Knowledge plus character pave the way to college and beyond." Both St. Marcus and MCP have achieved some of the highest results in Milwaukee, particularly in the area of elementary literacy.
Quality Across Sectors
Notre Dame Middle School (5-8 Religious Voucher)
Wedgewood Park International Baccalaureate School (6-8 District School)
Serving an all-female, primarily Latina population, Notre Dame Middle School has established itself as one of the highest-performing schools in the city. Notre Dame emphasizes leadership skills, critical thinking, and social justice in a bi-literate (English and Spanish) setting. One of few International Baccalaureate schools in Milwaukee, Wedgewood Park is a large public middle school in Milwaukee Public Schools. Wedgewood's I.B. curriculum emphasizes holistic learning, intercultural awareness, and communication skills. Both schools are exemplars of school quality and success within their respective sectors.
