The best school in area. Striving with strong programs, academics and a great community while other schools in the area struggle. A true diamond in the rough

Berlin High School is a stand out from other schools in the area. It diplays year after year of excellence in every area. No where in the state will you find a better staff of experienced teachers who care for their students and love thier work. People who are questioning the schools that thier childeren currently attend in the area should consider berlin area school district as an alternative. While other schools seem to be heading down hill and suffering from budget cuts, this school is charging forward with top of the line education. You will find dozens and dozens of programs and classes here that don't exist in other schools the same size. Check out this school!

Not every student is going to be an artist or academic scholar. Though high test scores are great, they tell nothing about the person being graduated outside of their ability to take a mulitiple choice test. What I think is the BEST about Berlin's schools is that they also promote VERY good vocational education program (Agricultural Education, Drivers Education, Shop, Journalism, etc.). Life skills that students are going to take away with them and use whether they choose to participate in post-secondary studies or not. Students in the vocational education programs learn valuable skills that they will take with them in life and eventually become community leaders and civically responsible because they learn responsibility for their actions and that actions have consequences. The students that participate in vocational education programs often make the best employees because of this understanding. What better skills to equip their students with!

Berlin is an awesome school to attend. It has such a rich tradition of academic, athletic, and artistic excellence and much, much more. With just around 600 students, it provides a perfect enviornment to get involved with dozens of activities. Berlin provides a very large number of AP, honors, accelerated, and other unique classes for students to take. Each department is equipped with state of the art facilities. Built in 1996, Berlin High School features a two court gymnasium, a natatorium, a huge 500 seat capacity auditorium, a large cafe commons, 4 computer labs, green houses, statue gardens, 3 art class rooms, A huge Library Media Center, a woods shop, metals shop, a tech AV department with cutting edge techknology, as well as enitre wings for science, math, english, business, social studies, music, and home tech. Athletic fields, tenis courts, and soccer fields are all within very close proximinty also.

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.

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.
