Shabazz City High

Shabazz is an innovative academic alternative high school. At Shabazz, we are intentional about developing learning activities that ask students to think, to develop in-depth understanding, and to apply that learning to important, realistic problems.

Welcome to Shabazz City High

An intentional community of learners.

We are dedicated to creating a safe, harassment-free learning environment for all our students. We understand that a safe environment is a prerequisite for the sustained, purposeful work that is required to learn. We strive to create a culture that values self-expression, individuality, different viewpoints, and the unique voices and abilities of all our students.

What Makes Shabazz City High Unique

Caring for ourselves, caring for each other, caring for our community.

  • Philosophy of learning through doing is a foundation of our curriculum. Field trips provide opportunities for both experiential and service learning.
  • Project Green Team selected as a “Badger Bioneer” by Sustain Dane.
  • Animation film festival featuring student created artwork.
  • Science and outdoor adventure education courses offered.
