Parent: Highland Community School
I am new relatively new to Milwaukee and have been a part of the MPS system for three years. My experience has been fantastic. My son is in a Montessori non-instrumentality charter school. The staff is very dedicated and they love the children. The parents are highly engaged making the school truly a community. There are days I reflect on how proud I am of the school: whether it is because of the excitement my son has about showing me the work he is doing in his class, or because of the generosity the parents demonstrate with donations to families in need. While this is a non-instrumentality MPS school, the growth the school has experienced would not have been possible without support from MPS.
