We've had three children at Aldrich and a fourth on the way. We've been very pleased with the school, staff and opportunities for the children. We're a household that prefers diversity in education and our kids personal development. They have each excelled in their education. Our opinion, you get back what you put into it and Aldrich has been very good for our kids.

The teaching staff has been amazing with my 6th grader. He has some learning difficulties, but not really a specific learning dissability. His teachers have taken him under their wings and really helped him blossom as a student. They have helped him focus, organize and become interested in school again. His love of reading has finally taken off. He enjoys books now. They have all spent so much of their own time helping him. I am very impressed with the teaching staff, and grateful for turning my sons learning experience into a positive one. The Music program is wonderful. Information to parents is good. The sports programs are very good.Overall I think the school rates for us a B.

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.
