Quality small town school district. Teachers and staff are caring and well qualified. Parents are friendly and care about their childrens education. Athens community has come together to pass a referendum a few years ago to help financially. Athens has been doing very well in a number of sports the last few year and should continue with a number of very good/caring coaches. School buildings are a little out dated but, overall, a very nice school and happy with my kids education so far.

This wouldn't be the first choice on the books for my children, poor staff members in the elementary and high school. School is very un-prepaired also doesn't use money to the best practices. I have 2 children in the school already and don't approve of the staff that they hire and they way they treat the parents of the children in the school. On top of it all they want me to rate some areas sorry my rating for the teacher quality is zero and also for the principal leadership and parent involvement.

The school district has funding issues, but so does everyone else. The district seems to be concerned with the general well being and education of students and participation in extra curricular activities is high. It is in a rather remote location and as such causes many of the parents to travel some distance to employment. All and all this school is trying and succeeding in changing times.

It looks to me like the kids could get away with more than usual here but overall a good school. The teachers seem to care & give a decent effort to help them out when needed. Great small school with a family minded environment.

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.

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.
