There are a lot of classes, nice people, good teachers to help your student prosper into the great person everyone could be. As a former parent I believe that.

I spent most of my middle school years and all four years of high school in Cedar Grove. There are reasons I moved to Milwaukee a month after I graduated. Teachers are totally hit-or-miss. Some are great and nurturing, but others will fly into a rage at the drop of a hat. The health teacher is just the gym teacher in a different room; she knows nothing at all about actual health issues, to the point where she didn't know that bulimia is bad for you, which a girl in my class asked. Arts are completely neglected (besides band), with the only art class offered being "art." The choir is open to anyone looking for "an easy A," making the quality awful. Anyone "different" at this school (a minority group, a non-Christian, a non-conservative) will be met with great hostility. Lockers are vandalized. Posters are ripped down. People who are "different" are harassed by students openly, and the administration will not do anything about it. If you're a white, upper middle class, conservative, Christian family with athletic children who you want to enter the world with a closed mind, this is the school for you.

I and my high school age daughter are counting down the years until she's done at this school. I've offered to move so she could attend another school (transportation issues) but she wants to stay with her friends. The head people at this school don't want any type of confrontation, nothing to change, no challenge. They don't want anyone to 'think outside the box' and try something new. Most of the teachers are very good, but I think they are limited in what they can do and provide. If you're not an athlete, there's not much offered... art club, writer's club... I think that's it. The lunches offer little in the way for vegetarians or those who don't want their main course floating in grease. Attempts to improve the lunches was met with resistence and refusal, always a reason why they couldn't do it. Nothing offered for the gifted/talented students.

A beautiful facility with small class sizes and involved faculty and administrators.

The school does not offer a tutoring program for struggling teens. The attitude of the school staff seems to be: Stepping back and letting students 'figure it out' or 'take responsibility for their own learning' which I believe may lead to a deeper cycle of failure within the school environment. Parent involvement seems to be taken in a defensive manner if the parent is requesting modifications or accomidations for their teen. It seems the school would rather the teens seek out what extra help they offer to all students, rather than focus on the fact that one size does not fit all. Frustration has been my experience in dealing with this school district. I provide a structured environment at home and it seems the school is providing an education, but when a student exhibits signs of academic failure, they are left to their own devices.

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.
