About the Madison Metropolitan School District
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.
