The Vel R. Phillips Juvenile Justice Center School is located in the Milwaukee County Children's Court Building. A Wauwatosa School District staff provides educational services to all Milwaukee County children who are placed in secure detention by the Wisconsin Juvenile Court System. Our student population fluctuates on a daily basis from 80 to 200 students. Instruction is delivered consistent with an alternative education model as students attend classes with their living groups, rather than in age or grade levels. We provide instruction in the basic curricular areas as well as in Art and Physical Education. Our Juvenile Justice Center School staff provides a positive, full-day, school experience for our students to build on when they return to their home school.
