Midvale – Lincoln at a Glance
Midvale – Lincoln Elementary School is a community of staff, parents, students, district representatives, and community members working together to create the best school for all children. Our school provides multiple opportunities for every child to succeed as a creative, critical, and productive member of our society.
Midvale – Lincoln offers a rigorous academic program of powerful and experiential learning which builds on children’s learning and social strengths.
Midvale-Lincoln is unique in that it is one school on two campuses. Midvale, grades K-2, offers cohesive primary education and is located on the near Westside. Lincoln continues a challenging and developmentally appropriate academic program for grades 3-5 on the South side.
Average class size is 20; total enrollment varies, but averages 350-400 per campus. As one of Wisconsin’s SAGE (Student Achievement Guarantee in Education) schools, a state grant ensures that average class size is no greater than 15:1 in K-2, and 20:1 in grades 3-5. This ratio maximizes individual attention and growth in literacy, math and other core curriculum.
