In 2007 the Wauwatosa School District and a dedicated group of parents and teachers set out to pilot a new model of education for the twenty-first century. The Wauwatosa STEM charter school was launched with 42 students. We have experienced a student waitlist every year amidst a seven-year growth plan.
The mission of Wauwatosa STEM is to provide an innovative and dynamic learning environment where students are encouraged to navigate their own course. Individual needs are met in a cooperative, supportive learning community through an engaging and challenging curriculum rooted in the sciences, technology, engineering and math. The vision of Wauwatosa STEM is to provide an environment where students are inspired to inquire, investigate and discover the world around them.
WSTEM shares a building with Wilson Elementary School and is located in the southern part of Wauwatosa, nestled in a neighborhood in close proximity to the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center which includes Froedtert Hospital and Children's Hospital.
Our walkable neighborhood school serves the neighborhoods of Glenview Heights and Ravenswood.
We have a committed PTSA (parent-teacher association) and an active student body with numerous co-curricular opportunities to engage in (details can be found under the Activities tab on the homepage).
