A Legacy of Academic Excellence
University School of Milwaukee prides itself on its long-standing academic reputation, going all the way back to the three predecessor schools – Milwaukee Country Day School, Milwaukee Downer Seminary, and Milwaukee University School – that merged to form this great school. Our academic reputation at all grade levels is unmatched in Milwaukee and in Wisconsin, and is recognized across the country. A USM education provides the foundation for a lifetime of active and engaged learning.
As a college preparatory day school, USM offers students an outstanding academic foundation and a rigorous curriculum. Our Preprimary Program (prekindergarten, junior kindergarten, and senior kindergarten), Lower School (grades 1-4), Middle School (grades 5-8), and Upper School (grades 9-12), each enjoy their own dedicated spaces within our interconnected campus. Our new, state-of-the-art facilities support creative, 21st-century teaching methods that prepare students for today’s highly competitive and interconnected world.
