The Milwaukee School System

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the largest city in the state and one of the biggest in the Midwest with a population of about 595,000. It is the main economic and cultural center of the larger metropolitan area, which has a population of more than 2 million. The nearly 90,000 students attend one of 300 schools that are part of the Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) district.

In large school districts, it can be challenging for parents to know where to turn for help when their child faces academic struggles. Varsity Tutors works with parents to help them connect with highly qualified personal tutors with expertise in a wide range of subject areas. No matter what your child’s age or learning needs, a Milwaukee tutor is waiting to help your child reach their learning potential. Here's a breakdown of assessment scores in some of the top schools in Milwaukee. How does your student compare?

Milwaukee Test Scores

Milwaukee high school students are expected to prepare for nationally recognized exams such as the ACT or SAT. However, they are also required to achieve a passing score on a variety of other assessments throughout their academic careers as part of the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS). This comprehensive system includes the Wisconsin Forward Exam and Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) programs and tests on language arts, mathematics, science and social studies intermittently between grades three and eleven.

Many parents initially seek the services of a personal tutor when high stakes standardized exams are looming on the horizon. However, private tutors can be utilized long before and after these exams. Experienced tutors can help your child improve their grades throughout their academic career, and they can also help fuel interest in subject areas that may not be accessible in most public schools. Perhaps your child is doing well in math and science but would like to learn more about applying those skills to robotics or astronomy. With the help of a personal tutor, your child’s interest and imagination are the only limits to their learning potential.

Unfortunately, even the most highly ranked high schools in Milwaukee are not part of the top 50 for the state of Wisconsin. In the chart below, you can see which Milwaukee high schools are leading the city and how they compare to other high schools in the state.

Recent Milwaukee Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Rudy in Milwaukee, WI
In today's session, the student and I focused on physics. We continued the chapter on resistors and semiconductors.  We reviewed how circuits were modeled and how they were manipulated. The student said that his teacher might give a test on Friday, so we also reviewed the formulas that we covered in the chapter.

Tutoring review by Ramya in Milwaukee, WI
The student and I reviewed the Activity Series of Elements and applied them to Single Replacement reactions. We practiced multiple problems.  He seemed to have a pretty good understanding of the material after completing the problems.

Tutoring review by Kevin in Milwaukee, WI
The student and I discussed how to tell if two triangles were congruent. After I explained the rules for determining this, we worked through some of his geometry homework problems together.  Once we were finished with his geometry, we started to work on some algebra concepts. The algebra we focused on included writing the equation of a line in different forms.

Tutoring review by Gabrielle in Milwaukee, WI
The student had done work on English and Reading on her own.  Her English score, from what she had worked on by herself, was at about a 26, so we decided that she should continue individual study on that.  For her Reading, she completed two sections.  For the first, I had her time herself just to see how long a passage would take and then decrease her time by a minute for each passage.  For the second, she tried to get it all done in time.  Her score has gone up and is hovering in the 20-23 range.  With more practice and timing she should be able to solidly earn at least a 21 every time.  We spent time covering Science. She has a lot of Science to cover on her own before we meet again.  With Math, I am giving her problems specific to the concepts we have covered rather than general problems in hopes that she will at least be able to solidly learn those concepts.

Tutoring review by Carolyn in Milwaukee, WI
We went through her homework on combinations, then did several practice problems.  She was struggling with how to set up the problems, but we went over it until she felt more comfortable.  We also talked about strategies for using the calculator.

Tutoring review by Noor in Milwaukee, WI
Worked with the student on bettering his writing through reviewing his past mistakes and having him correct them. I also had him summarize a few chapters of a book he is reading. Overall, I believe he is improving quite a bit in his writing, as is evident from his grades in school.
