If there's one thing Wisconsin residents take pride in, it's their schools - and it's for good reason. From Kindergarten throughout college, the state excels in academic achievement and offers its residents a wide range of educational opportunities - both public and private. The five-county region has hundreds of high-performing Catholic, Lutheran (Missouri and Wisconsin synods), Jewish and Baptist schools. Many have deep roots. Marquette University High School, for example, is more than 150 years old, while the University School of Milwaukee dates back to 1851.

Wisconsin schools have consistently been ranked among the best in the country. 
Private schools play an important role in educating Wisconsin children. They offer parents an opportunity to have their students attend a school based on a specific curriculum, teaching approach or value system.
Wisconsin values education and nowhere is this clearer than in its system of colleges and universities. More than 68,000 students are enrolled each year in the more than two dozen public and private four-year schools serving the five-county Milwaukee area.
