I go to this school and I love it. I haven't had any problems with any of my teachers, and the only kids that do are the ones that don't pay attention. The teachers are knowledgeable and sure in what they are teaching. The staff are firm in their judgement. Some of the tests are difficult, but most kids manage to mantain decent grades anyway.

It has a great learning atmosphere. They encourage students everyday to do their very best.

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.
