Shalom High School
Shalom High School was founded in 1973 with the specific purpose of educating young people returning from correctional institutions.
Over the years, the school's mission evolved to serve any student who found academic achievement difficult in traditional high schools.
Shalom High School began contracting with the Milwaukee Public Schools in 1981 and became one of Milwaukee's first partnership schools.
Today, Shalom offers 100 students a full-day program which leads to a high school diploma.
