Teachers wait until the last minute literally one day before grades are due to the office before updating. My son had a A in a class all quarter, the night before teachers were scheduled to submit grades he received a C. Students are held to high standards but teachers are not. Teachers should have deadlines and requirements as the students do. It seems as though the teachers get pleasure out of failing these students.

I am a former student of Messmer. The school is a great school. The teachers are dedicated to helping each student succeed. Everything they have taught me is now helping me in college now. The classes offered are high quality classes and help prepare you college. On top of all that the counselors bring in college admissions people to help you get a head start on deciding which college is best for you. And on top of all of this the school is safe.

I think Messmer is a great high school. My son did overcome some challenges academically. This made him a determined student. It has taught him that struggles occur in life yet he can accomplish whatever he is seeking in life. Students are very polite, structured, and ambitious. From my experience as a parent, students worked together like one family. Teachers responded to my situations and I'm very pleased as a parents with deadlines for students overall. Messmer teach students responsibility.

I personally think messmer is one of the best high schools in the coutry.It has everything you may be looking for, and more. Some stereotypes agree with what people say about messmer, and how it's weak because it's a religous school....but to bad for them.They're really missing out on a great oppurtunity to have fun and to succeed in life.So if you're looking for your child to enjoy school while learning at the sametime then messmer is the place. by the way messmer is not weak

i am a student at Messmer and it a great place to learn. It not only has a great religous program but the students participate in all the opportunities they can. The kids at the school are always willing to learn and they are all great people to have around you. It's a place to grow as a person and spiritualy. You can make friends easily and the teachers are always there when you need help. The teachers are always commited to helping another student succeed and give the students that push to help them make it in college.Also because the class sizes aren't so huge the student gets more one on one time with the teachers for extra help. It is a great school and i recommend it to everyone.

Messmer is a wonderful school that gives the students a lot of opportunities to go further in life. It's a great school to become apart of. It's none like the others.

Messmer high school is a great school that is overlooked by alot of people simply because it is catholic. But really, Messmer is one of the best high schools in Milwaukee and should be considered by all as at least a second choice. If we were to always look at something and say no because of the religion, what kind of society would we live in?
