I found the teachers to be worried about thier status in the community and how they can one up others to be the main priority there. Nothing Genuine about it. The focus is how they look in the public eye rather than that of the students. Putting down others in front of the kids and even cruel and hurtful words to thier own children concerns me. Obviously it is reflected as well in our poor test scores.

The Riverview Middle School, along with the entire school district as a whole, cares only about the reputation of the school district. The teachers are very lazy. [One teacher] gives almost all of his students A's after taking one glance at the worksheet. A lot of the teachers just print worksheets off the internet and call it teaching. Worst of all they make the students do portfolios for 7 pointless years. Most students go home from school feeling that they learned nothing. I would rate this school a double F- if I could. Horrible School.

My children and myself have enjoyed their experiences at Riverview. They have a very caring staff and are willing to help the students and parents with any questions or concerns. The Student of the Month award is a great incentive to students to truley do their best. I have greatly appreciated how just because your child has completed a grade, the teachers of that grade are still concerned with how well you child is doing in the next. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

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.
