Vieau school has changed over the years, I should know since I was a student their in the 1980's. One thing that hasn't changed is parent and teacher involvement. I see familiar faces every time I step in the school. The school has produced many succesful people. The proof is in the pudding. The school always went out of its way to help it's students grow. Mr. Santiago tought us how the stock market worked and thanks to him I feel confident when investing. The office staff is the only thing that can use some help. Their are about 6 ladies that work in the office and when you stop in for whatever reason it doesn't stop them from gossiping in front of you.

Vieau School used to be a great school. It has declined in it's personalized family style approach it has had in the past. The staff is not as attentive to the students and as a result there is now bullying going on. It is really a shame. It was at one time the best in MPS! Students are now uncomfortable, not accepting and praising diversity and originality in personalities. The staff is nowhere near what is once was!

Vieau School is a school where children are safe and nurtured not only academically and emotionally. It is a caring community that has many opportunities for parents to take part in and high expectations are set for all academics. There are many opportunities for participation in music, arts, and sports. They have a partnership with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Skylight Opera, Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra, and the String Academy. There is a folkloric dance troupe as well as a dance program where the kids can learn ballroom dancing and tap dancing. I find the teachers caring and hard working. The administration is also accessible and they have listened to any concerns I have had for my children. Every parent function I have attended has been well attended and there are a lot of special events for us to attend as families. I wouldn't have my children any place else.

My experience with Vieau School has been a very unpleasant one. I do not feel welcomed or informed on whats going on in the school.

GreatSchools Rating

What makes up this rating?

Academic rating
5 / 10
Climate rating
6 / 10

This school's GreatSchools Rating is based on academics (90%) and climate (10%). The academic rating measures students' test scores, academic growth and college readiness. The climate rating measures safety, cleanliness, parent involvement and more.

What is the new GreatSchools Rating?

Rating legend

average
Average
Above
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.
