Siefert Elementary School is located in a near north-side neighborhood of Milwaukee. Our school serves approximately 300 students from 3-year-old Head Start through grade five which includes regular education students, as well as students with special needs. Siefert receives Sage funding, which allows us to maintain a teacher/pupil ratio at 1:18 in grade K5 through 3rd Grade. We also have High Scope and Title 1 Funding, which allows us to purchase instructional support materials and employ educational assistants.
The mission of Siefert Elementary School is to ensure that all students will expand their current academic capacities and become responsible, well-rounded citizens in the 21st Century. Siefert students will be proficient writers, speakers, and readers. They will be competent, creative problem solvers in both science and mathematics and will be familiar with current technological advances.
Milwaukee Public Schools educates all students for success in higher education, careers, and responsible citizenships so that MPS is the first choice for families.
At Siefert, high quality teaching centered on a minds-on learning approach will lead to increased proficiency, preparing all students for success in middle school and beyond.
