My son attends 4th grade, he is happy at school, very often says how loves going to school. His teacher is fair, when ever he doesn't complete his homework, she will make sure, I know it. Which I appreciate. The problem is, kids do as they please at school, and very often parents "don't want to see" or pretend they don't. Kids demonstrates at school, only what they are thought at home. If teachers don't correct kids now, later will be somebody else, because parents don't want to work on it. Thanks Mrs Prado.

Every single one of my children attended Burdge and loved it now my grand child goes there and she loves it too. They always consider the whole child including the family.

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.

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.
