If you have a child that is low-average intelligence this school is a fine fit. I, however, have excelerated children whos needs are not being met. There is a TAG program that meets once a week for half a day-only for half a year though. So my child only gets to be challenged for half of the year. Yet they have money to employee many 1:1 aids for emotionally challenged children. Most of the teachers here though are wonderful. They try hard despite the limited resources and help. The principal is not very good. She seems overwhelmed and seems to have limited knowledge of how to run a school. Parent involvement seems to be the same 2 dozen parents who volunteer throughout the school. I am one of those parents and do feel very welcome and appreciated by the teachers and staff.

This is a great school with excellent teachers. Unfortunately bullying is a problem in every school and I think Huntley handles things well.

My school does not provide well for students or staff. Most days the staff run out of supplies or resources for the kids. Would not recommend school.

We had 3 children attend Huntley School. They had amazing experiences. The staff and principal were extremely dedicated, spending numerous hours beyond the school day to enhance their educational experience. The guidance counselor goes above and beyond to address all issues. Yes, he is on the playground daily to assist students as they learn socially. Issues were always addressed appropriately.

My son has special needs, and his progress came to a screeching halt while attending this school. The teachers did little to individualize his education to meet his needs. They were also very disorganized, and important paperwork would not be sent home the majority of the time. A lot of bullying goes on in this school, and little is done to address it. My son now attends another area school that has been wonderful with him. He is now making great progress.

We just moved to the area with a special needs child. I have found this school to be cold and a unsupportive machine. The principal has no time for anyone, she is a stretch to meet with parents. My sons teacher is overloaded and unengaged. If you have a child that needs a little extra help....avoid thus school at all costs,

Bullying is going to happen at all schools! I was so impressed on how Huntley handled the situation with my son! The school jumped into action moments after I reported what was going on! The school followed up many times with both my son & myself. Huntley's guidance counselor is out on the playground at recess to help with any issues that come up. The rest of the outside supervisor take action when bullying occurs. I drop off and pick up my kids everyday, I have reported inappropriate behavior as have other parents. I feel the parents have great involvement! Huntley is a great and very safe school! I was nervous sending my first child BUT am so glad to have such a wonderful school very well round! I have three children attending Huntley and have loved all our teachers and staff members. My son also learned something AMAZING that he could forgive his bully. It has been two years since the bullying and he does play with the child that bullyed him. With a great staff and leadership these two indivuals learned a lot. THANK YOU HUNTLEY for being an awesome school

Both of my children had to endure a lot of bullying while at Huntley. While most of the teachers are great, the principal and administration do little to act against the bully and their behavior. The bullies seem to have more "second chances" and options than the victims do. As a parent, I'm disappointed in Huntley's bullying prevention (and lack thereof). I do, however, like the education my kids receive and extracurriculars available. The teachers do go above and beyond for the kids. I would recommend working with the teachers and counselor when the principal is ineffective.

I also agree with Bullying at Huntley. It was a great school for TAG and the teachers my child had were wonderful. My child was bullied by an adult parent helper who was always around my young child. This went on and there was little done about it. It affected my child and after 2 yrs we left the school. They need 2 do a better job with bullying at this school for sure!

Yes, Bullying is part of Huntley, my children have been subjected and witness to aggressive behavior by many students (hitting, pushing, threatening and foul language), unfortunately the school does little to stop this behavior. I feel my children are being taught to be a victim. Is this part of the curriculum?
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 15, 2011

I agree with the bullying. My kids also went through a lot of bullying with little recourse or disciplinary action from the teachers & administration. I think Huntley could, and should provide a safer environment for the kids.

My son is currently in 2nd grade (and has been at Huntley since Kindergarten) and I've seen him grow in so many positive ways. I've seen the individual focus from the teachers when needed, and the extra effort they are willing to give. The extra activities offered such as the K-3rd grade plays, Boy Scouts and their TAG program are to be commended. The school staff and parents have a wonderful relationship and let you know they are there for any support needed, whether it's difficulties in the classroom or a child experiencing emotional situations at home.

Huntley is a warm, welcoming school. Although the acutal building is older by comparison to others in the district, don't let that fool you. Huntley provides exceptional care and is constantly looking to provide top-quality educations to anyone who enters. We have 3 children currently at Huntley. Our middle son has benefited from the special education provided at Huntley. The staff make themselves available and have created creative solutions to make our son's education the best it possibly can be to make him successful. From the moment you enter the building you know your children are loved and encouraged to be the best they can be.

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.
