The Minneapolis 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?
Minneapolis 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.
