Pershing Elementary School, located in the Village of West Milwaukee, is the most eastern elementary school in the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District. Proud of a culturally rich and diverse population, Pershing promotes a strong Pershing Family community, where respect for all permeates every aspect of our school. They are a hub school for children with English as their second language. The faculty and staff are committed to success for all students from four-year-old kindergarten through fifth grade. Daily, after the Pledge of Allegiance, students say the Pershing Promise which states the beliefs regarding their goals, behaviors, and ability to make good choices.

Pershing School is proud of the many varied opportunities its students are afforded. They have a strong liberal arts experience, in addition to the core content areas, the students participate in music, art, physical education, and library/technology classes. They are very proud of their Pershing Choir, Band, and String program. Students also have the opportunity to be a Peer Mediator (PALS), a peer tutor, a video club member, work on the school newspaper, the Pershing Eagle, or be a kindergarten helper. In order to promote a positive work ethic, they also have a student job board where teachers can post a “job” and students fill out applications, interview, train and be evaluated on their performance.
