Why WAWM?

The West Allis-West Milwaukee School District is a 4K-12th grade public school district. We are the second largest school district in Milwaukee County and the twelfth largest in the state of Wisconsin. WAWM Schools serve over 9,200 students in three High Schools, four Intermediate Schools, eleven Elementary Schools, and one Charter School. Our walkable neighborhood schools mean there is a school close to your home. Strong school spirit and communities of students, parents, and educators is something that our neighborhood schools take pride in.  

Our schools provide engaging learning experiences in classrooms where students are welcomed, challenged, and supported. Instruction is personalized, engaging, and focuses on college/career readiness and 21st century skill development. We develop school cultures where students, teachers, and families form strong relationships to support learning.

Our professional learning community of teachers and staff work with students and their families to help plan academic and career exploration activities and opportunities that will prepare students for the future.

WAWM high schools have a tradition of excellence as comprehensive schools providing a well-rounded, high-quality educational experience for all students. We encourage students to take advantage of opportunities in academics, athletics, music, art, languages, career and technical education (CTE), theater,  service clubs, honor societies, and social clubs.
