Dear Student and Parent/Guardian:
The department chairs, administration and guidance personnel of South Milwaukee High School have prepared this web page for students and parents to aid in the planning of a four-year course of study.
The South Milwaukee High School curriculum focuses on the skills needed by all students, and emphasizes higher-level skills, such as problem solving and critical thinking. The recognition of the specific skills and credits needed by all students is represented in our graduation requirements. South Milwaukee High School recognizes excellence through a variety of programs, course offerings, testing programs, and awards and scholarships.
Parents play a key role in the development of the plans for their child's education program. Planned communication with parents about the progress of their child is a critical part of the district's plan to meet student needs. Examples of this planned communication include: annual parent conferences, parent notification of test scores, staffings or special parent conferences to discuss student needs and programs, and on-going communication with parents concerning student attendance, grades, summer school programming, and secondary school program planning.
University and technical college requirements as well as job entry skills are constantly changing. It is most important that you make every effort to be an informed consumer. The teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators are prepared to assist with program planning and course selection. Since individual needs, interests, abilities and goals differ, it is important that each student develop a program that meets all of the requirements for graduation and fulfills their specific objectives for career plans, vocational/technical training, or a college education.
If I can be of any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me.
South Milwaukee High School Principal
