Milwaukee Excel High School (MEHS) is an alternative academic charter school that promotes supportive, personalized learning in a real world context. MEHS, which is chartered by the Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS), offers a unique structure and atmosphere with the goal of helping all students reach their full academic potential.
Who We Serve
MEHS serves students in grades 9-12. MEHS is particularly interested in reaching a student population that is disengaged from traditional education. The school has a uniquely developed support system to deal with students who have been involved with the criminal justice system.
MEHS promotes a highly supportive learning environment that gives all students access to learning through successful relationships, creative inquiry, and connectedness through their personal identities. Given this philosophical approach, the learning experiences are divided into four distinct themes throughout the school year:
- Individual Exploration
- Family Exploration
- Community Exploration
- Global Exploration
The core instructional strategies used for these themes are those associated with the Project Based learning model.
