MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Public Schools will honor 167 students who completed graduation requirements during summer school and earned the right to wear a cap and gown. This year, MPS put a concentrated effort into summer high school, seeing it as a critical opportunity to ensure students have every chance to graduate and move on to college and career.
Friday, July 28, 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.
South Division High School
1515 W. Lapham Blvd., Milwaukee, WI 53204
This summer, MPS staff implemented a robust outreach to students who could directly benefit from accelerated or recovery options. To accommodate these additional efforts, MPS doubled the number of schools offered in their summer high school program including Madison, Obama, Pulaski, Riverside, South Division and Transition High Schools.
Offerings for Credit Recovery and Acceleration were increased which led to large enrollment and student success. These course offerings were provided in a blended learning and face-to-face format to best meet the needs of Milwaukee youth.
MPS is proud to present these students with diplomas and send them on their personal journeys ready for college and career.
