We've been at Fratney for 5 years and have never experienced such a supportive and caring school environment. Fratney truly is a COMMMUNITY to which we belong, not just a school. Oh, and the CLC (run by the Boys and Girls Club) is super great too! JK Lee Tae Kwon Do, Milwaukee Wave Soccer, tutoring, piano lessons etc, etc. Awesome program!

There is no better place than Fratney. A caring and respectful place. An amazing academic program in two languages with a very diverse community. My child learns much more than the "3R's". The staff is top notch, very dedicated and knowledgable.

This is a really good bilingual school, not only for kids wanting to learn spanish but for kids who are transitioning from spanish to english like mine did. The staff is very atentive, everybody knows us and knows who our kids are. It's a very secure enviroment and very anti-bullying oriented. The teachers are good but i have to say that Ms. Carmen from K4 is the most WONDERFUL teacher I could have asked for my daughter. This is a teacher who choose to be a teacher because she likes what she does, she is very dedicated with the kids and I will always be grateful to have met her. She goes above and beyond and i can tell that she just loves children, is very thoughful but also has very effective teaching skills. I need to also say that Ms. Bethzaida from 2nd grade is a very good teacher and helped my son trough his adaptation process coming from another country. She is very dedicated and has a passion to teach children and understands them, and for that I am also grateful. This school has alot to oofer and gets the parents very involved. I wish there where more schools like this and also that this school could receive more funds to get even more things done.

The only reason I even give this school a star is because it teaches Spanish. Other than that, the school is pretty bad. Unsafe area, poor educational programs, and poor organization as a whole. I pulled my children from this school asap. I'll get a Spanish tutor while putting them in a better school.

La Escuela Fratney is certainly the best! My oldest son is now 17 and attended Fratney as a 4 year old and graduated at 5th grade. Many of his teachers later in his studies have said he speaks with a native toungue due to the superior teachings at Fratney. The entire staff is dedicated to your childs education and well being as a whole! My 9 year old daughter has also been there since she was 4 and is excelling as well. She very much so enjoys her school experience. Fratney is much more like an extended family - family of diverse and cultured people who not only teach but love your child.

My daughter just started this school in the fall and she loves it. So do I. She is enthused about going to school and you tell that the teachers are dedicated to the students. Keep up the excellent work.

Superior staff, great students, excellent support staff, involved parents, a diverse student and social justice and anti-racist emphasis. Children leave 5th grade completely fluent in Spanish and English. What more could you ask for?

Teachers, principal and staff are dedicated to an anti-racist curriculum and Spanish dual-language program. All teachers go above and beyond to enrich the lives of the children. I don't know of any other school like it anywhere in the state. I am so happy my child is at Fratney.

Excellent elementary school for any parent interested in a diverse, well-grounded school with good parental involvement and a positive attitude throughout the staff; not to mention their bilingual approach to education and a focus on arts & mutual respect for one another.
