If there's one thing Wisconsin residents take pride in, it's their schools - and it's for good reason. From Kindergarten throughout college, the state excels in academic achievement and offers its residents a wide range of educational opportunities - both public and private. The five-county region has hundreds of high-performing Catholic, Lutheran (Missouri and Wisconsin synods), Jewish and Baptist schools. Many have deep roots. Marquette University High School, for example, is more than 150 years old, while the University School of Milwaukee dates back to 1851.
