New Milwaukee Public Montessori School to Open in September

From the Milwaukee Public Schools website:

Howard Avenue Montessori is scheduled to open to 120 half-day 3- and 4-year-olds in September. … The school was created as a response to strong demand and demonstrated success among MPS Montessori Schools.

Milwaukee Public Schools already includes seven Montessori programs as well as a charter school (Downtown Montessori Academy), making this number eight.  According to an article in the Bay View Compass, the new program was fast-tracked by the Superintendent of schools after an unexpected vacancy in a school building.  More on Milwaukee Public Schools at this Wisconsin education blog.
