I was a little skeptical about Bayfield Elementary because of all the "talk" but I have been so pleased with the school. My son is finishing up his Kindergarten year and LOVES his school. We moved in the middle of the school year to Bayfield, and to be perfectly honest I feel that Bayfield offers more educationally than his previous school. His Teacher is amazing, everyone is so friendly and his school work keeps him challenged but is still fun. I am so happy with my choice!

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.

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.
