My Students

Our students attend the only regional project-based learning school in Wisconsin; we are an intentionally diverse school, so our students come from all over southeastern Wisconsin. Many of our students find the school as a sanctuary after traditional schools; we bring kids together and work collaboratively to create a place where students engage in deep, meaningful learning.

It's not rare to see kids of different races, backgrounds, interests, and skill sets working together and forming strong relationships at our school.

We pride ourselves on challenge, authenticity, and compassionate interaction. In the fall of 2019 we'll have about 100 students, across all ability levels, from both the city of Milwaukee and well into the surrounding areas. Our students have started businesses, worked alongside professionals in internships, and won awards for their artistic endeavors. We're proud to be a family.

My Project

Over the past year, our students have seized advantage of STEM opportunities at our urban high school. Our courses in computer programming and robotics quickly became highly demanded. The 3d printer requested in this project is known for having high capabilities at a reasonable price and will be a valuable component to our rapidly growing robotics and science department.

Despite their hard work and focus, limitations on technology currently place our students at a disadvantage compared to their peers throughout the region.

The inability to create parts on demand limits options and creativity and forces students to settle for what is available instead of pushing their limits.

Students will use this equipment in our Intro to Robotics course, as well as our more advanced robotics offerings and will be a valued addition to our school community.
