Launched in 2012, the 1:1 Program reflects University School of Milwaukee’s commitment to prepare students for the 21st century. Its implementation evolved directly from USM’s mission to “embrace the challenges and opportunities of the future” in an equitable, student-centered, and forward-thinking learning community.
Through our 1:1 Program, students in grades 2–12 use a dedicated personal computing device throughout the school day and beyond.
- Students in grades 2–5 use school-owned iPads.
- Students in grades 6-8 use family-owned MacBook Pro or Air laptops.
- Students in grades 9-12 bring their own personal device.
To ensure our students’ online safety, USM has installed firewalls to block inappropriate content with correlating software to monitor device traffic. Students and parents must also sign Acceptable Use Policies to ensure the tools are used in an appropriate manner.
