My children's school has so many awesome things about it. I really don't know where to begin. The teachers, oh my goodness. They do not hesitate to go out of their way to help a child that they see struggling. For example, last school year, my son was really struggling with math. His teacher suggested bringing him in early and he would give him like private tutoring session once a week, one on one. What made this teacher so amazing was that him and his wife just had a baby and by coming in early took away some of his family time. Another teacher would help us with making sure that our son didn't lose any of the extra services he needed due to his delayed speak and processing when all others were saying that he was getting better and may not need all the extra help. By doing what she did, she could have really gotten herself into a lot of trouble. But both teachers cared more about our son than anything else. To that, my husband and I owe them a great amount of gratitude.

Love it! Great teachers- the boy comes home smiling every day. He's making lots of freinds, sings songs a home, wants to read...what a difference a new school makes!

I believe Amy Belle is a great school. we have a group of teachers and additional educators that care about the students as well as the school. The teachers and all of the staff care about the children and put them first. Amy Belle has arts, music and keeping a great expectation on staying healthy is an additional goal they put out to parents. I am very proud to say that my children attend Amy Belle.

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.
