Posted November 29, 2005

This school is where you want your children to go if they play in sports. If they are not in sports then they are looked at as they are trouble makers. There has been a slight improvement this year compared to the last two years as far as the principal goes. We have a constant feud with at least one of the teachers every semester. So if you are a sports freak this is where you want to be,if not, you may want to seriously reconsider going to a different school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
