University School of Milwaukee enters into a Parent-School Partnership with all school parents. This Partnership is based on the belief that USM faculty and administration must work together with parents in all aspects of school life for the benefit of each child. Collectively, the school's Mission Statement and Guiding Principles, along with the Common Trust, form the foundation for the principles of good practice that are included in this Partnership.
The Parent-School Partnership document, instituted during the 2013–14 school year and shared with all school parents during the enrollment process each year, includes both USM's expectations of parents, as well as those things that parents should expect from USM. It covers:
Environment for Lifelong Learning
Right to Privacy
Participation in Community Life
In partnership, USM and parents can ensure the most positive experience for every student and help strengthen our community of lifelong learners for the benefit of all.
