Background: Milwaukee Excellence Charter School was established as a non-instrumentality charter school beginning with the 2016-2017 school year. The current contract is for up to a maximum of 720 FTE pupils in grades 6 through 11. Milwaukee Excellence has two campuses located at 4950 North 24th Street for grades 6 – 8 and 3620 North 18th Street for grades 9 – 11.

Milwaukee Excellence’s mission is through rigorous academics and character education essential for success, to educate 6th through 12th grade students to excel within and graduate from four-year colleges and pursue the professions of their choice.

On August 26, 2021, the Board approved a lease agreement with Milwaukee Excellence Charter School for the Douglas School located at 3620 N. 18th Street.

On September 9, 2021, Administration received notification of a change in leadership at Milwaukee Excellence.

Also, the contact/school leader's name will be revised in the lease agreement with Milwaukee Excellence Charter School for the Douglas School located at 3620 N. 18th Street.
