About the Madison Metropolitan School District
The Madison Metropolitan School District is the second largest school district in Wisconsin and serves over 27,000 students in 49 schools. The district covers approximately 65 square miles including all or part of the cities of Madison and Fitchburg, the villages of Maple Bluff and Shorewood Hills, and the towns of Blooming Grove, Burke and Madison.
The MMSD is committed to ensuring that every school is a thriving school that prepares every student graduate high school well-equipped for college, careers and their community.
Developed together with our staff, families, students and community members, our Strategic Framework describes our strategy as a district. Together, we have set out to close the gaps in opportunity that lead to gaps in achievement, and to be the model of what a strong, successful public school district looks like.
