We have been awarded numerous grants over the last 8 years which have allowed us as a community to focus on high academic and social excellence for all students and to be recognized as a Mosaic school of high value within the MPS district. Some of the grants awarded have been: Comprehensive School reform grant, Charter School Planning and Implementation grant, Reading First grant, REACh grant, Refugee grant, Homework First grant. Parents rate the school very highly per the following comment: I am a proud Humboldt Park parent. My kids have attended HPS for five years now and think of their peers, the staff, and other parents as their extended family. My children enjoy an engaging curriculum, nightly homework designed to reinforce skills and knowledge learned during the day, and great after school and family activities. When one of my twins started to struggle and fall behind his brother in reading, the school diagnosed the problem quickly and provided him with extra support and tutoring for a short period of time. That little extra support and attention got him back on track and increased his confidence. My twins are treated as individuals and held to high expectations. As a parent I am provided with information and realistic tools I can use at home to help my kids continue their learning outside of the classroom. In turn, my kids teach me new things everyday. In Milwaukee, I have a lot of educational choices and HPS continues to my first choice!
