Milwaukee Public Schools is a diverse district that welcomes all students, preparing them for success in higher education, post-educational opportunities and citizenship.  


The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. 

The Ronald Reagan High School vision is to academically challenge all students to recognize, appreciate and strengthen their individual talents. By empowering students to become life-long learners, who are culturally inquisitive, technologically adept, and respectful contributors to an interdependent world, Reagan students will graduate to positively impact both the local and global community.

We aim to provide superior educational opportunities so students can achieve their highest potential. Our administrators, staff, parents, and community supporters all work together to make this a reality for urban teens.

Ronald Reagan High School ensures a globally-based education for all students through a full 4-year International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum and by maintaining these criteria:

  • High student achievement through the implementation of the IB program through all 4 years of school.
  • Safe and secure learning environment.

  • Supportive partnerships with parents, community, and businesses.
  • Effective and efficient use of district resources to support student success.
