Milwaukee High School of the Arts Ratings & Reviews

It was OK. My best experience was with the orchestra as that's where one of the best teachers was and where I felt most comfortable. I learned the most and had the best time in orchestra. I also enjoyed taking pre-calculus and AP calculus because they were taught by one of the best math teachers I ever had in high school. I did; however, feel that the school held me back a lot. Now that I have been in college, I learned that this school kept me down, especially in math. I could have been doing so much more but some of the classes that were required were a waste of time such as the health class. I could have been taking a math class or science class, but instead I had to take a health class that was a complete waste of time. I learned nothing (except that ear condoms exist but exactly how is that going to help me?). I also disagreed strongly with one of the math teachers teaching method. After going to college, I still disagree with her teaching method and it definitely held me back. She gave me a D on a test that I had correctly answered every question. The reason I received a D was because I didn't follow her steps, or the way she wanted us to show our work. I honestly thought that was the most ridiculous thing ever and I still do. In college, they do not do those kinds of things which is why I still agree with my view point. I also felt that some of the teachers should not be teaching there, like Steve Koehler.

All three of my kids went to MHSA, and they had a great time at a diverse school. It prepared them for success at UW-Madison. They and their friends are such wonderful, interesting, talented young adults. Some students travel the world, some are becoming nurses and teachers and realtors and computer techies. Most MHSA students don't make a living at through the arts, but some do! It was ne Ed the idea that they would ALL become great artists, dancers, actors, writers, etc (though some are). That was never the point. The discipline and focus they learned by doing arts shaped them into productive, creative people. I can't imagine a place with more interesting teachers or students.

I am a current student of MHSA (class of 2017) and I LOVE it! Even though it has its days and drama like every high school,it really shows how dedicated they are to the arts and the regular academic part is equal to the arts academics. Its a great skool.

My daughter is in the class of 2015 at MHSA. The orchestra and music training has been unparalleled. I believe with her MHSA and MYSO (milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra) experiences have given her a very broad and diverse musical experience that her peers that are homeschooled to practice 4-5 hours a day will not have. The academics in 2011-2014 while she has attended have gotten better over the years as she is able to move into the AP classes. I fully expect her to have most of her freshman year college credits already completed when she enters college. The diversity of MHSA and the family atmosphere in the arts majors is a benefit I would not pass up on and am grateful she has had this experience is our increasingly segregated city.

I was a student at this school (class of 1992) and I do not feel that the education which I received was comprehensive enough to prepare for me for continued education opportunities. Though the art programs were very good, in hindsight I am disappointed that the academics seemed to be a secondary priority. I later withdrew from the school and took up my junior year at Riverside High School where I was placed in AP classes, (Advanced placement) where I caught up with my college-bound peers and excelled for the remainder of my high school career. I did go on as an adult to travel and took acting work as an extra in several movies including Interview with the Vampire, The Pelican Brief, Heaven's Prisoners, Candyman II. While I enjoyed this time in life, these odd jobs did not pay the bills and I continued my education in my 30's. Overall, I would have to say that if one is truly interested in the arts, visual or performing, and they intend to make a career out of their talent, then Milwaukee High School of the Arts is the place for you. If the academics are what you are going for, I would not suggest this school.
