Best School in all the major surrounding counties for sure! Great Staff! Great Design for the School! All the Equipment and Technology inside the school is up to date! Amazing weight room for students! Amazing Sports Programs and this school often holds a lot of success in their sports programs with State Awards! This school holds a lot of potential and success for students whom are serious about their success and educational experience! The only con I do have to say is that they do not have their own football field! :(

Best school in the state of Wisconsin. Everything is 1000x better. We moved here from an Illinois school and this school makes thinking about our old school sick

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
