MG21: Who We Are

MG21, Monona Grove Liberal Arts Charter School for the 21st Century, is a project-based public charter school which serves 75 students in grades 6 through 12 in the Monona Grove School District. Our mission is to provide a student-centered educational community for independent learners which is designed to give students the skills to walk their path in life. Our programming focuses on relationships, project-based learning, meaningful engagement and academic skills that help students explore and move forward on their personal and educational path. Students who thrive here are curious, self-directed learners who enjoy inquiry-based learning in a smaller educational community.

We have developed a systematic approach to education that views each student as a “whole person,” whose needs must be met and reflected within a curriculum that is student-centered. The ultimate purpose of education, from our view, is to teach students to ask and answer the question: “How do I want to live my life?”

The Secret of Success

Our unifying principle, to teach students to ask and answer the question: “How do I want to live my life?” and our mission, to provide a student centered educational community for independent learners which is designed to give students the skills they need to walk their path in life are the keys to our success.

MG21 ANNUAL PERFORMANCE and ENROLLMENT DATA

Please note that the State Report Card numbers under “State” refer to the State’s average performance data. Because of our small size, MG21’s student cell size is too small to post data and therefore our data reads NA.
