The German Immersion Foundation (GIF) supports the Milwaukee German Immersion School (MGIS) and the Milwaukee School of Languages (MSL) by providing the additional resources to fully fund programs needed to prepare children to excel in the competitive global marketplace.
The parents saw the writing on the wall. After several consecutive years of budget cutbacks for their children’s school, they decided to take action. A handful of committed parents joined together in 2001 to form the German Immersion Foundation, an entity that would raise funds to support two Milwaukee education treasures – Milwaukee German Immersion School and Milwaukee School of Languages. The foundation exists to ensure the high quality of these two Milwaukee Public Schools, where student test scores rival those of students from the top performing school districts and private schools.
