Milwaukee Community Cyber High School5

Well organized school with a modern approach to learning. My daughter has excelled! Dress code and standards of conduct instill respect and sense of community amongst the diverse student body. Frequency of progress reports and conferences keep parents well informed. Format helps students regain confidence if they have struggled academically or socially in traditional public school setting.
MC2 assessed our Freshman's needs and gave her the individual support and professional expertise to surpass her own expectations. She is more confident, interested and informed than when she first walked in their door. MC2 made our Freshman a better student and a more mature teenager. The entire staff is responsible for her academic success and her personal development.
I appreciate finding this small high school which is able to provide an educational experience more tailored to individual student needs. MC2 provides a rather intimate environment where I have found the principal and the teachers to be receptive to our input. The teachers are able to recognize and work with my daughter's intellectual gifts and her challenges. Although the online curriculum has some inevitable limitations, I know that the staff is working on expanding the course options and they were flexible enough to grant credit for other types of courses in which my daughter engaged. My daughter feels safe, happy and accomplished at this school.
If you are looking for a small high school with the caring teachers and administrators, you are in the right place. My experience as a parent has been encouraging as I witnessed the teachers willingness to adjust to many different learning styles and not try to fit every student into the same mold. It was also great to see the teachers and administrators support the team sporting events after school as spectators not because they had to but becasue they wanted to. In a small school envirnonment that kind of support goes a long way for students transitioning into adulthood, looking for acceptance and encouragement. The Cyber school approach to education in this setting is the best of both worlds because the socialization of a classroom setting is in place yet the student has the opportunity to over time have online classes that can be completed at their own pace. Particularly beneficial for Cyber parents who can log on for daily progress, attendance and email updates. Wether your student is advanced or average, don't miss the option of Milwaukee Community Cyber School to round out the unique educational experience you may be searching for in Milwaukee.
We love seeing how our son's confidence has improved at MC2. The entire staff guides his learning without hovering and validates his intelligence by knowing him for who her really is. We are very pleased that MC2 has become such an important part of his educational journey.
