Experience the passion and wonder of Wisconsin PTA, the oldest volunteer child advocacy organization in the state. Our membership includes parents, teachers, retirees, students, community leaders, business leaders and others concerned about the health, education, and welfare of children.

Research has proven that regardless of socio-economics, children who have active family and community involvement in schools likely have better grades, attendance, social skills, and goals. By promoting family and community engagement, WI PTA plays a major role in improving schools and public education for every child.

We were new to the school and joining the PTA helped us get to know other families, teachers and people in the community.
