33% of the Abbotsford Elementary School students have "limited English proficiency." This is extremely important. Abbotsford Elementary is spending a great deal of resources teaching students to read and understand English and converting other documents to Spanish. Many of the top-tier students are left to their own devices. 370 students > 16 per classroom > 23 classrooms > 1 high performing student every other class > 11 high or minimally performing students total. Overall 11 of 370 students met or exceeded the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS). If it were not for those 11 students, Abbotsford Elementary s rating would be a 2 instead of a 3. Lastly Abbotsford Elementary has a huge issue with bullying; one of the teachers told me I have no idea what to do with the class anymore. I believe Colby Elementary is a far better choice.
