Dottke High School is a deeper learning community. Students at Dottke must meet the same requirements for graduation as the district’s other high schools, but our student’s core course work is infused with the deeper learning competencies. A Dottke graduate has learned how to communicate effectively, be self directed in their learning, and has developed an academic mindset.
At Dottke, we pride ourselves in providing students with authentic experiences within our local community. We are continuously looking for partners in the West Allis/West Milwaukee area.
Dottke has always served non-traditional students in non-traditional ways. This has led to misguided community perceptions of our school. Once viewed as a school for the “bad kids,” Dottke has proven over time to be a rather unique, innovative, inclusive and special place that graduates and their families rave about.

Since coming to Dottke my life has changed drastically. I get a ton of one on one help from my teachers and I never feel like I am just a number here. Dottke is like a second home to me and my teachers are like family.
The students at Dottke are amazing. Every day I am blown away by what they are accomplishing. They are creating awesome things and it is a blast to be working with them.
I like going here because it is peaceful. The class sizes are smaller and it makes it easier to focus. There always positive vibes here and everyone is always welcoming. The teachers are understanding and really helpful.
