I previously taught at Atlas Preparatory Academy and would strongly advise against sending your children there. Teacher turnover is incredibly high, with very few staff members staying longer than one year. The lack of resources is deplorable, there is no standard of accountability for teachers, and administrators do NOT support their staff when it comes to dealing with parents and families. With adequate leadership, investment in quality teachers, standards of any kind for performance, and an actual interest in promoting student learning, Atlas could have potential. However, that's a long list of requests (although none of them are unreasonable), and I don't see things changing there anytime soon. I loved my students, and there are some wonderful families who choose to send their children to Atlas, but I would highly recommend that they reconsider. It's a disaster.
1 out 10 rating says it all. This school is unprofessional to say the least. Students get very few resources, and almost no extra help. Very, Very low test scores really reflect this school.
Hi i'm a six grade student here. When my parents first brought me into this school I was so excited to go to this school. But later on it was awlful the food every day has been cooked over 40 min ago. Your timed when you go to the bathroom. And at the high schools there are no libraries.
I was lloking for a good school for all three of my kids. Last year seemed to be ok but this year the teachers and rules chaged. This year is the worst experience and when I look up reading and math scores this school is very low. My lil cousin switched to another school and they said she was bellow grade level in everything but atlas said she was above grade level. I don't recomend this school for no child.
While the school is slowly starting to acquire resources, there are little resources and technology available here. In addition, there isn't a curriculum, a library, sports, or after school activities. The school is not organized and there is little administrator support for teachers. The student diversity is nice, though.
Two of my children go here and like it very much. I pulled my children out of a public school hoping they would get a better education and get treated better by the teachers. I made a very good choice.. I am very thankful for the staff at Atlas.
I am very disappointed with the lack of control in many class rooms.Safety is a very major concern.
Atlas Preparatory Academy offers a great choice program in Milwaukee. Atlas believes that all students are valued equally. Teachers provide a positive and safe learning environment and celebrate cultural diversity within the classroom.
this school was recommended to me by an administrator that works there, I am very disappointed by the lack of structure and curriculum at the school. They have lots of safety issues and no teacher participation.
