Why MTSD?

Meeting the Needs of All Learners

Our educational program builds on students' interests, challenges them to grow as individuals and become independent, confident, self-advocates. Students experience a wide array of possibilities in and out of the classroom through exposure to art, music, theatre, world languages, STEM curriculum, athletics, and co-curriculars activities.

Student Success

Creating a coherent and aligned continuum of education requires a shared passion and purpose among educators and staff, and a common system for supporting innovation and accelerating student growth. We are proud to be recognized as an exemplary educational leader, consistently named among the finest schools in the state of Wisconsin.

Preparing Students for the Future

Socratic Circle

In a rapidly changing world, we recognize that many of the jobs our students will hold in the future are yet to be imagined. That's why we not only teach students what they need to learn, but also how they need to learn. Students engage in experiences that grow and foster their skills in critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, and inquiry - skills that will serve them well no matter what the future holds. To personalize each student's educational journey, all students in grades 6-12 participate in Academic and Career Planning.

Creating a Culture to Sustain Excellence

Teacher and student

Relationships, trust, attitudes, and expectations shape and influence a school culture. The culture we actively work to build and sustain within each of our schools is one of respect, responsibility, fairness, citizenship, diversity, and inclusion. It is a culture where employees are valued and understood as our most valuable asset in achieving our mission and vision. And it is a culture that embraces collaboration and engagement with parents and community members.

Maintaining Operational Strength

A strong public school system benefits stakeholders in many ways, and we are proud to contribute to the continued vitality of the City of Mequon and Village of Thiensville.
