students are bullied frequently, especially special needs students. Principal sweeps issues under the carpet so statistics look better. Staff members have been assaulted and it has been changed to disorderly conduct. Academically many students are passed to hide failure rate
This school helped me expand my vocabulary and helped me further my knowledge of my second language, German. The kids here are nice, however they are not if you hang with the wrong crowd or start drama. Most of the teachers here offer free tutoring if you're child is struggling. The principle makes sure to keep us on our toes and it's overall a nice school.
I believe the school is a good school & I love the College Possible program they have there. It made the process for my child to prepare & apply to college easier for us. The majority of the paperwork was done along with receiving help on applying for financial aid & scholarships. Recently, my daughter received a call from her new College Possible coach she would have while attending her first year in college.
School is excellent in continuing language immersion. Still 4 hours of German a day and my daughter is excelling at all the standardized tests required by the state and district that are in English. Middle School teachers are doing a great job.
My sister attended this school 2005-2009 and during that time I enjoyed the different activities they provided for the families so they can see what the children are learning during school. Due to those positive atmosphere & staff I decided to send my oldest daughter to MSL and now she is a junior. The only negative but major thing to me is that they had changed the grade that they will accept new students. Since I wasn't able to attend parent teacher conference last year I missed the information on when they were excepting early admissions and the information wasn't sent with report cards. So I am very disappointed that years of waiting for my youngest daughter to get in 6th grade that she's unable to attend MSL due to the lack of information from MSL and Craig Montessori. I hope that they will change the grade level for acceptance back to how it use to be when my sister started going there which was 6th or 9th grade. A lot of Milw. Public high schools have been displaying nothing but negative atmosphere and teachings it is going to be hard to find a high school for my youngest daughter to attend when that time comes. PLEASE CHANGE THE GRADE LEVEL FOR ACCEPTANCE TO 6TH & 9TH GRADE
