Shalom High School

Shalom High School was founded in 1973 with the specific purpose of educating young people returning from correctional institutions. Over the years, the school’s mission evolved to serve any student who found academic achievement difficult in traditional high schools.
Shalom High School began contracting with the Milwaukee Public Schools in 1981 and became one of Milwaukee’s first partnership schools. Today, Shalom offers students a full-day program which leads to a high school diploma.

Population(s) Served

The Northwest Opportunities Vocational Academy (NOVA) was founded in 1993 as an alternative school-to-work transition program for “at-risk” students residing on the Northwest side of Milwaukee. NOVA operates in partnership with the Milwaukee Public Schools. Students in grades 7-12 are offered a full day program which leads to a high school diploma.

Population(s) Served

El Puente High School for Science, Math, and Technology was founded in 1997 with a math and science emphasis to provide hands-on, project-based learning. El Puente operates a full-day program leading to a diploma for students whose families are eligible to participate in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program. Students are exposed to a variety of colleges and work training programs.

Escuela Verde is a charter school authorized by the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee that opened in 2012. Escuela Verde enrolls students in grades 7-12.
