St. Alphonsus has seen a growth in enrollment in the past few years, particularly in the 3K and 4K programs. Housed in a newly renovated area devoted to the lower house, the 3-year-old kindergarten offers developmentally appropriate structured activities half-days in a two-day or three-day format.
The newly expanded 4-year-old kindergarten, featuring three teachers and two aides, is available as either half-day or full-day programs. The program includes math, reading, art, music and computer/technology instruction plus field trips. Each year, the 4K classes also put together a gallery-style art show to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House charities.
Starting with the 5-year-old kindergarten, Spanish instruction is also available in all grades. Expanding on technology programs, St. Alphonsus also uses the STEM program – Gateway to Technology. After school care is available.
Nearly 450 students attend the school, which draws a diverse group of families from Greendale, Greenfield, Franklin, Oak Creek, Muskego, Hales Corners, Milwaukee, Sturtevant and Caledonia.
