My children have attended Neeskara for the past 15 years. Overall I feel it is one of the best MPS schools around. I feel the staff work very hard, but feel the parent involvement is very little and this hurts the school. Great principle and administrative staff in the office!

Neeskara is a great school, I like the diverse population. They really care about the students and I really like the emphasis on allowing the children to be 'peacemakers'. The office staff are always polite and cheerful. This is a school that strives for academic excellence. My son loves his school. There are a lot of programs the children participate in and the PTO is awesome. I believe this is the best MPS school in Milwaukee. Tiffany Hughes

Neeskara is a wonderful neighborhood school. Teachers genuinely care for my child and with a diverse population of student, I feel my child is getting a wonderful cultural experience along with his education. The school is one of the two dedicated to the deaf and hard of hearing and the classrooms are set up to accommodate special needs along side the general population. While resources are low (MPS budget-wise) the school and the parents through PTO work very hard to make up for funding issues.
