One City Schools is a Wisconsin-based nonprofit organization that provides high quality educational opportunities for young children. Our mission is to seed a new model of public education that ensures young children are on track to succeed in a college or career preparatory program from birth through high school graduation. Our vision is of a Greater Madison community where all children are prepared to contribute and succeed as adults. More importantly, we aim to partner with families and the broader community to cultivate children who become free, global and deep thinkers, curious learners, effective problem solvers, humanitarians, happy people and young people who care about the world around them.
Currently, One City operates two schools: One City Preschool, an accredited 5-star preschool serving children ages 1 - 3 and One City Expeditionary Elementary School, a public charter elementary school that presently enrolls children in 4K and Kindergarten, but will add second grade in September 2020 and add additional grades annually through grade 6.
We are located two blocks off of South Park Street, next to the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County. Take a left on Buick and Park Street if heading South on Park Street. Drive up to the Park, turn left.
