I love it here, and all my teachers are really nice and show genuine concern for students' well-being and personal growth. In addition, school events are always a lot of fun and I enjoy the clubs and sports that are offered.


Posted March 11, 2012

I attended Webster from 2004-2007 all and all I am happy with my time there, Minus 8th grade that wasn't a happy year. The reason 8th grade was bad was the 8th grade special ed teacher I had who would yell non stop and intimidate me to the point where I didn't look forward to coming to school every day, I was basically bullied by a teacher. It go so bad, that when I started high school, I treated my new special ed teacher with no respect. Fourtunatly that 8th grade teacher is no longer at webster

Way to many kids for this school to handle. Students have no repect for others or teachers and are very spoiled.

i am a sixth grade student and usually it is very hard to get used to new schools for me. the teachers are great, as they understand what we need. they made us feel at home when we go to school. the lunches are the best, which for us doesn't really happen that often.

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.
