An exciting new high school is opening its doors for the first time on September 4, 2007, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. SUPAR, the School for Urban Planning and Architecture is
a Milwaukee Public high school created in partnership with the
University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee’s School of Architecture and Urban
Planning. SUPAR will use Project Based Service Learning as its foundational pedagogy and will be a place where students truly learn by doing. Students will have ongoing interactions with Community Partners from the University of Wisconsin, the American Institute of Architects, from community groups in the Milwaukee area and from a wide array of other professionals at relevant times throughout the school year.
Guerilla Educators, with critical support from David Schrader, AIA, recently had the privilege of working with the teachers, administrators, and founders in a workshop format designed to give the SUPAR Education Team a strong foundation around the Project Based Learning methodology.
SUPAR will start with a student population of 80 students with eventual enrollment in succeeding years to peak at about 150 students. It will begin and stay small enough for every teacher to know and professionally care about every student in the school, so there will be a real sense of community and place - the SUPAR Way. In short, SUPAR will offer an unprecedented opportunity for parents in the Milwaukee area who want to enroll their high school age children in an educational environment that is safe, academically rigorous, Project Based, and FUN.
