Golda Meir: Legacy of Success
Golda Meir School offers an array of Gifted and Talented curriculum and curiosity building experiences including accelerated academics, service learning, extensive fine arts classes, as well as local, regional, national and international field trips. We offer cultural experiences in collaboration with professional fine arts, science, and humanities institutions all over Southeastern Wisconsin. In addition, we offer a variety of extra-curricular activities in the areas of science, arts, athletics, and service. Admission is based on an application process that reveals a child’s need and adaptability to our programming. Specific directions, applications, and enrollment deadlines are found under our Application tab at the top of the web site.
Golda Meir School serves 3rd – 12th grade utilizing the Renzulli Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) and includes instruction designed to develop giftedness in five key areas; General Intellectual, Subject Specific, Leadership, Creative Thinking, and Artistic. Our academic curriculum is Springboard at the upper elementary and middle school level, and an Advanced Placement Diploma program at the high school level. Our school report card and alumni success reflect results that could only be achieved by students motivated in an academically challenging, intellectually stimulating, interdisciplinary curriculum supported by involved families.
Founded in 1976, as one of Milwaukee’s original magnet schools, we urge our students to follow the example of our namesake, Golda Meir, the first and only female Prime Minister of Israel, and the third female to hold such a leadership position globally. Her service began as a third grader here, at what was then Fourth Street School, where she identified the need for low income neighborhood children to have textbooks purchased for them and spearheaded efforts to raise the money from the community.
We strive to serve and develop service oriented, creative problem solving, life-long learners. We expect our current students to use their gifts and talents in productive ways that make a difference for themselves and for the greater good. To that end, we differentiate curriculum to meet every child’s needs and work to establish relationships that allow us to inspire and motivate the scientists, artists, inventors, philanthropists, and leaders of tomorrow.
We challenge your child, they change the world.
