Community Service Guidelines
Audubon High School upholds community and service as fundamental pillars of our school. To participate in Audubon High’s Graduation Ceremony, students must complete 100 hours of Community Service; this includes the 25 hours of Service Learning that Milwaukee Public Schools requires for Graduation.
