Kathy Ronco

Kathy currently directs Highland Community School, the oldest charter school in the Milwaukee Public School system. Highland began in 1968 as the first inner city Montessori school serving families in the area from every strata of society. Based on its success, Highland became the model for what is now the largest array of public Montessori schools of any city in the nation. An experienced nonprofit manager, Kathy has served in a variety of capacities – both board and staff – with numerous nonprofits over the years. She served two terms on the board of Wisconsin Community Fund and is currently on the board of Forward Community Investments, a FEX member fund.”
