South Division High School is the largest bilingual high school in the state of Wisconsin, offering rigorous curriculum for college-bound students. South Division provides Advanced Placement (AP) coursework in most content areas — including art, calculus, English, history and Spanish — allowing our students to earn college credits. The school has partnerships with post-secondary institutions, allowing our students to take course work at the college level.
South Division is proud to be one of ten Community Schools in MPS where students, families, teachers, staff, neighbors and partners all come together to create an outstanding learning environment for students. As a Community School we strive to cultivate a climate and culture that enables students to develop cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and ethical competencies and the capacity to thrive in college, career, and life.
