Golda Meir School offers a Gifted and Talented Program designed for a diverse urban student population. Our test scores reflect results that could only be achieved by students motivated by an exciting, interdisciplinary curriculum and supported by caring parents.
Extended field trip opportunities currently include destinations like Chicago, Minneapolis, the Grand Canyon, New York, Denmark and Northern Wisconsin. Our downtown location allows for regular visits to First Stage Children’s Theater, Milwaukee Youth Arts Center, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee Public Museum, Central Library, and numerous other downtown attractions.
Middle school teachers continue the Golda Meir tradition of high level literacy and mathematics, with extended lab opportunities in science and extensive research experience in social studies. Community service, foreign language studies, and arts education are integrated into the program as well.
The Golda Meir staff creates a stimulating environment where the potential of every student is discovered and rewarded. As one of Milwaukee’s original magnet schools, our urban gifted and talented program represents over 35 years of high academic standards and an engaging curriculum for a culturally diverse population.
