Working for the Wauwatosa School District

  • Wauwatosa School District is a high achieving, forward-thinking, and richly diverse public school district serving about 7,200 students in K-12. 

    We're committed to equity and making sure ALL students succeed. 

    The district has nearly 900 staff and 16 schools including a Virtual Academy, a Montessori School, and STEM options at the elementary, middle and high school level.

    Additionally, we staff school programs for several Milwaukee County facilities, including Children’s Wisconsin, Vel R. Phillips School, and River Hills School which is part of the Milwaukee County Mental Health Center.

    Our long history of excellence has been recognized both regionally and nationally. In 2017, the Washington Post named both of our high schools on its “America’s Most Challenging High Schools” list. The U.S. News and World Report has repeatedly recognized Wauwatosa East High School as one of the Top 25 High Schools in the state and our District has routinely “Exceeds Expectations” on state Report Cards issued by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. 

    We believe relationships are at the core of success for our students and staff and we are guided by our focus on equity and our five-year strategic plan to create or maintain:

    • Highly Effective Teachers and Staff
    • Continuous Improvement in Student Learning 
    • Sound Stewardship of Resources
    • Community Relationships to Benefit Students


    • COLLABORATE:Time is dedicated during the school day for your professional learning and collaboration with a building mentor and peers.
    • GROW: Improve your knowledge and skills with on-going coaching and feedback to help you meet student needs, including focused support in equitable teaching practices from Equity Coaching Staff.
    • THRIVE: Building strong relationships is at the core of our culture. Wellness matters here, and so do staff and student voices.
