Wisconsin schools have consistently been ranked among the best in the country.
If there's one thing Wisconsin residents take pride in, it's their schools - and it's for good reason. At every level – primary, secondary and higher education – the state excels in academic achievement and offers its residents a wide range of educational opportunities - both public and private. In addition to the many nationally recognized public schools, the five-county southeastern Wisconsin region has hundreds of high-performing private and parochial schools, many of which have deep roots. Marquette University High School, for example, is more than 150 years old, St. John's Northwestern Military Academy was founded in 1884 and the University School of Milwaukee dates back to 1851.
