great school with wonderful teachers. they really care about their students.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 5, 2007

I have had a good experience with Ashland schools. As a parent I feel that both the teachers and the principal have been very responsive to the needs of my children. It is necessary to communicate concerns and celebrate excellence when encountered. As with any sucessful venture, time and effort may need to be invested to get the results you desire.

Ashland School system is the worst the system I have had to deal with. My third grader is at on this curved grading system, but reads at a first grade level and in math she can barely add and subtract but they are making her multiple and divided. I am one of the many parents that is having this problem, but yet the school system does nothing about helping these children.

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.
