Certain teachers could improve on their teaching. I'm glad they got rid of Mr. Meyer though. Maybe I will let my kids go their again.

I was very pleased with the quality of teaching at the middle school. Concerns for me include the district's lack of desire for parent involvement at all levels and the lack of communication with parents even when it is requested. We pulled our student out after they returned to school following a hospitalization for a serious medical condition. Less than 9 days after the return to school meeting, the school was no longer doing the things they agreed were reasonable to do to meet the medical needs of our child. They indicated that our expectations for communication when our child was pulled out of class to talk about peer conflicts was excessive, and our request that after such meetings a staff person check in with our child to see how they were coping was unreasonable. Staff indicated "it doesn't seem our school is equipped to handle your child's needs". It was two weeks before they presented us with alternatives,some of which were redundant. A larger neighboring public school has been awesome in communicating with us since the transition. Our child is thriving.

The size of Auburndale may be small compared to other schools, but the size of the hearts of the school staff and parents is huge. Not only do the teachers, admin staff, aides, cafeteria staff and janitors give their all, so do the students and their parents! There is such a support system in this district. I have never seen so many teachers and parents working together, volunteering and getting involved in the community and school. In this hurried day and age it is so refreshing to see how everyone comes together for our kids. I came from a large school and am so happy that my children go to Auburndale.

I love the internet (power school) I can know my childs grades daily if I want, or any missing assignments, attendance record and lunch balance. This is so helpful that there are no surprises when progress reports or teacher conferences.

I love this school, because the staff is great and the students are even more wonderful.

Auburndale School District is small in size, but offers a lot to our students. This would include college prep courses and advanced placement courses for college credit.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted September 21, 2009

The college prep courses have enabled my son to feel confident as he begins his search for a college. The math and science course offerings are challenging enough for the most academic student, yet there are courses in both subject areas for students whose strengths lie in other areas. The new art classes being offered are another great option for students who are artistically talented.

Auburndale has so much talent and it needs to be recognized. These kids work so hard and should get recognition for doing so.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 16, 2009

This school is the best. They really care about their students and give personalized attention to each and every student. They are a smaller school, but have many sports and other activities to rank among the best!.


Posted September 16, 2009

It is very individidualized to suit the needs of students

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.
