My son just loves going to the autism summer school here. This was the first day of his second summer and he came home all excited to go back again. I wish he liked his regular school that much! The summer school teachers are autism and get my son excited about learning.

This is an amazing school with experienced staff who know how to get the best from each of the students. The inclusionary philosophy where special education students work side by side with all students has a huge impact on all students. This staff has few discipline issues and consistently high achieving students.

I really love this school. All 3 of my kids have had awesome teachers that have gone above and beyond for my kids. Staff is very friendly and parental involvement is wonderful. It's a really great school.

Great atmosphere. Everyone is very friendly and parent involvement is very welcome. Great art program, wonderful teacher! Caring principal. The one downfall is the class sizes are somewhat large (26 kids in each kindergarten class in 05/06). Overall, great school!

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.
