I am a parent of a student that attends "RIGHT STEP" Im very impressed with this school!! these teachers and Drill SGT. really care about the children that other schools just pass along because of many different issues the children are going though. i really feel that this school should get more funding than public school because these men and women have to deal with issues that that regular schools would simply toss the child out of school without a second thought!! I know first hand. I really appreciate SGT. Billings and the rest of the staff for helping me get my daughter back on the "RIGHT TRACK" SOME VIEW THIS TYPE OF SCHOOL AS A PUNISHMENT BUT I SEE THIS SCHOOL AS A MUCH NEEDED HELPING HAND!!! THANK U ALL AGAIN!! S MATHEWS

Right Step Is The Best School Ive Gone To So Far. I Been There 2 Years &+ They Have Helped Me SOO Much. Ive Chanqed My Life In A Way &+ They Helped Me To Stop Doinq Thinqs That Would Get Me In Trouble. People Think Its A Bad School Because The Dril Sqts Are A Lil Touqh On Us But What People Fail To See Is That They NEED To Be Touqh To Chanqe Us Around &+ Show Us Were Not Grown &+ That Thinqs We're Doinq Are Sendinq Us Down The Wronq Road. Its Called Touqh Love Which Is What Some Parents Are Too Weak To Give Which Allows Their Kids To Run All Over Them &+ Start To Do Whatever They Want &+ Get Themselves In Trouble. I Dont See Anythinq Wronq With Riqht Step. Its The Best School. Like I Said Before. &+ People Complain That We Learn D &+ C And Marchinq But Whats Bad About It.?? Its Teachinq Us Somethinq New. I Dont Get Why People Think Its Wronq That Those Drill Serqeants Want To Help The Troubled Youth From Stayinq Out Of Trouble &+ Beinq Safe. They Just Care &+ Dont Wanna See Us Do Somethinq We're Gonna Reqret &+ Either End Up Behind Bars Or Six Feet Under. They're Tryna Protect Us From The World We're Not Ready For No Matter How Much We Think We Are. I Love That School. Marilena C.

I was a former student of Right Step, Inc, as a Junior 2008. At first I thought it was good and fun in which so did my 2 younger brothers and my 2 cousins too, but as the year went on I began to realize that neither me nor my brothers belonged there. We weren't like the other kids or our cousins, but we ended up there because we got some bad grades. I was hardworking as far as anything else but in all honesty I didn't like this school much. This school only taught me military stuff such as a few cadences, DnC, and execises, academically this school screwed me up for graduation. I had some good times here as did my family, but we had more bad times than good.My Drill Sergeants, most of them, were cool. I' m Fabian a.k.a. 'Psychokiller,' and i attended thismy

In all the hard work Right Step has put me through has thought me that life has way more then just drugs and gangs. It has changed me completely around . It thought me the value of life and love. I have been there for 3 years and i dont regret not one moment of it. Its all i looked for in a school. Thank you Right Step staff. I have made friends and family ther that will never be forgotten. Right step is my home sweet home.. I love yall Drll Sgt Aldape

I've been working for Right Step Inc. for almost 2 years now, and there is nothing like it. The experience is one you would never get elsewhere. Seeing the progress of these students make is overwhelming. I could never get this kind of satisfaction from any other job. Thanks goes out to all the Cadets who have make my job every bit exciting as it is. Dsgt. Dietrich

GreatSchools Rating

For private schools, the GreatSchools academic rating is based on test scores and student growth measures from students participating in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program and is not necessarily reflective of performance for all students at a private school. GreatSchools is working with state education officials in the hopes of presenting a more comprehensive picture of student performance at private schools in the future. In the meantime, we encourage reaching out to private schools of interest about specific testing information.

What makes up this rating?

Academic rating
1 / 10
Climate rating
Not available

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.

Average

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.
