I have 3 students in this school 2 are ADHD and 1 in Special Ed. I am always kept informed in how they are doing in class and with their grades. If one is missing an assignment or failed a test I get an e-mail immediatly. The teachers are caring and very helpful. My children value education as much as we their parents do. Parents will get as much help with their students and their education if they put fourth an effort.

As a former graduate of Crandon HS, I strongly urge families considering a move to the district to consider Three Lakes, Rhinelander, or Eagle River instead. The 'good-ol-boy' culture is endemic, and newcomers are most certainly not welcome. Poor quality education despite some teachers' best efforts.

This is a very poor school district.All children are not treated equally. They are pushed through even if they aren't ready. They recieve funds for each child in special ed , but the ones with severe ADHD are shoved in the office instead of being worked with.This work be the last place I'd send my children.

This is a great school district in which to raise a child. I attended Crandon for 13 years and feel that the faculty, staff, and other students have prepared me quite well for life. In 2000 I graduated second in my class from Crandon High with a 3.992 GPA. Currently, I am a junoir at Northern Michigan Univeristy and have a 3.41 GPA in the Computer Science department.

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.
