The West Allis-West Milwaukee School District is proud to announce that Frank Lloyd Wright Intermediate School, Longfellow Elementary School, and Pershing Elementary School have received Wisconsin Title I Schools of Recognition for 2019. 

Title 1 Schools of Recognition are in the top 25 percent of high-poverty schools in the state and have above average student achievement in reading and mathematics when compared to schools from similarly sized districts, schools, grade configurations, and poverty levels.  

Superintendent Marty Lexmond explains, “These awards recognize the work of students and their parents along with teachers, school administrators, and school staff members to break the link between poverty and low academic achievement. We are working hard to ensure that every student graduates college and career ready.”

The Schools of Recognition Ceremony will be held in Madison, WI on Monday, May 20, 2019 at the Capitol Rotunda.
