New In-school Psychotherapist

We would like to introduce to you a new mental health option that we have available for our students! Vanessa Rosas is a therapist from Sixteenth Street Clinic, but works from our building, to see AugPrep students on a weekly basis.
Ms. Rosas will be working with Middle and High School students who get referred to her directly through our social work team. If you are interested in having your child be seen by Ms. Rosas, you can fill out this form (do not call Sixteenth Street directly). After filling out this form, your school social worker will be in communication with you.

Let your friends and family know, now is the time to become a part of the Aug Prep family! We have seats open for grades, K4, K5, 2, 6, 7 & 9!

Our families are our most valuable partners in the education of our students and play an integral part in the growth of the Aug Prep student body! Thank you all for sharing your positive experiences with others and encouraging them to apply to our school!

We believe every child in Milwaukee deserves an opportunity to an excellent education and we know that you do too! Please continue to reach out to your family, friends, work colleagues and community to let them know that the opportunity to join the Aug Prep Family is NOW!
