As post-transition coordinator for a charter high school in Milwaukee, Patrick Carter, M.Ed. ’19 has spent seven years closely following students into college and helping them navigate the challenges of higher education.
Then in the spring of 2017, he, too, tackled a new round of classes for himself at Carroll, enrolling in the master of education program, still helping his former students from Carmen High School but not really considering that he’d cross paths with them on one single special date: graduation day.
Carmen High School of Science and Technology was recently ranked a top public high school in Wisconsin by U.S. News & World Report. Founded by Alverno alumnae Patricia Hoben ’04, Carmen uses an abilities-based approach to prepare students for college. The school has become a natural partner for Alverno.
The best high school in Wisconsin? According to the U.S. News and World Report rankings, released several days ago, it is the Carmen High School of Science and Technology campus on Milwaukee’s south side. Which is a charter school.

It's been that way throughout Patricia Hoben's life.
A doctorate in biophysics and biochemistry from Yale. Influential work as a science adviser in Washington.
And now: founder and head of a small high school on the south side, where low-income students are being pushed to commit themselves to two things: High expectations. High performance.
In its second year, many of the 140 students of Carmen High School of Science & Technology show signs they are making those commitments. And Hoben shows the traits that make schools like this succeed: Unrelenting dedication, clear vision, an ability to bring people together, and a positive outlook.
