As a grandparent of two children (K4 and 3rd Grade), my experiences with this school have been very positive. They make the children feel special and involve the parents and grandparents. I recently attended a "Muffins for Mom" event and it was very warm, welcoming and well-attended. Each female (mom, grandma, etc.) received a flower on the way out. Way to go to instill appreciation and the pleasure of giving in the children. Kudos.

Love Clement Avenue School. Great teachers, staff and principal. My son has been there since kindergarten. Glad he can go through eighth grade. Wonderful, safe, caring place for your children to learn.

i love clement avenue school. my children started in kindergarten and two have graduated and went on to high school and i have 2 still attending. the staff is just awesome. all of my kids teachers have shown how much they are concerned about their education and push them to do their best. the activities and family program they have really make parents want to get involved in all areas of what clement have going on. i must say that the parents involvement is beautiful. i work at an mps school and we dont see half the parental involvent that is given here. since becoming a student at clement my children have had the opportunity to participate in track & field, forensics, acting in major plays and choreogragh one, aquire piano skills and brought out the artistic qualities in them. one of my children stayed on honor roll for 3 years and they still have high gpa's in middle school. they also teach the students how to become involved and be active in the community. i cant say enough about the principal whom i give top kudos to. i wish this school can become a high school because my children will graduating from here.

I think that the teachers and staff really care about how the kids act, respect teachers and create a learning environment that most MPS schools don't. I think Clement Ave. should be looked at like as a success story and a model for MPS.

I am loving the experiences my daughter has had at Clement AVe. School. The school is so warm and inviting when you first walk in and the staff is very dedicated to the student body, whether they are the specific teacher of a child or not. They have gym, music and art (rare in this day and age) and my daughter is always excited about every new day at school. I look forward to seeing many more good things as she continues at the school!

Average

average

Our rating (from 1 to 10) reflects a school's overall performance. The higher the rating, the more likely the school will prepare your child for the future, so choose an above-average school (8-10) if possible. For average schools (4-7), do careful research and look for evidence that the school has high-quality programs. For below-average schools (1-3), take caution; a low-performing school may not provide the instruction or environment your child needs to learn, and you may need to supplement classroom lessons at home.

Academic rating

The academic rating is made up of equally-weighted parts: students' test scores, their academic growth (for elementary and middle schools) and their readiness for college (for high schools). The graphs below compare this school's results in each area to other schools in the city and state.

Climate ratings

This rating encompasses five elements of school climate: safety and cleanliness, respect and relationships, expectations for students, teacher collaboration and support, and parent involvement. This school's climate ratings are the result of GreatSchools' analysis of teacher survey data from the Spring 2013 School Climate Survey developed by Milwaukee Public Schools.

We rated schools on …



Keeping things safe, clean, and orderly.

This rating evaluates a school's environment, based on its safety, order, cleanliness and more. More highly rated schools have well-kept facilities and a safe environment conducive to learning. Schools rated poorly may have a chaotic environment, conflicts among students or even theft or violence.


Creating healthy, respectful relationships.

This rating measures whether the school has a positive learning environment and cultivates an atmosphere of respect. At a school with a higher rating, it's more likely that the school's culture celebrates hard work and learning, students treat their peers and teachers with respect and class lessons reinforce character strengths such as kindness and tolerance. A school with a lower rating may have a weaker learning environment or allow disrespectful behavior.


Promoting high academic expectations for all students.

This rating sheds light on the academic expectations that teachers have for students. At a school with a higher rating, educators are more likely to stress academic success, ask kids to work hard and expect kids to be college-bound. At schools with lower ratings, it may be more acceptable for students to put in average or minimal effort, perform poorly on tests and lack strong academic goals.


Supporting its teachers.

This rating indicates how teachers feel about their school's professional environment. At a highly rated school, teachers are more likely to work well together, learn from one another, have opportunities for professional development and feel supported by the administration. At a school with lower ratings, teachers may not interact much, feel appreciated or have much input in school decisions and policies.


Informing and including families.

This rating reflects how much communication parents can expect from this school. A highly rated school is more likely to have regular communication (e.g. newsletters, emails, and meetings) between administrators, teachers and parents. This may include information about student progress, homework help and volunteer opportunities. At lower-rated schools, parents may not get regular updates and may feel less welcome at school.
