I love this school. This school is sooo amazing. Right now the teachers are very nice. We have a good football team and a good soccer team.

As a current student at AHS I couldn't ask for anything more! Algoma is a close-knit comunity and is a nice, safe place to live and work. While Algoma may not be at the top of everyone's list for places to attend, it should be. The class size here is smaller than most which allows more student/teacher time. Everyone here is really friendly and get along great. The teachers are people you can learn from and we have a ton of school spirit! We have an amazing Special Education Program and a growing Hispanic population. Algoma has something for everyone and the only way to find out what it has to offer is to come see yourself! :)

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.
