I have had a wonderful experience with the teachers and staff at General Mitchell. Mrs. Gennerman 'the new principal' is a wonderful lady and my children adore her. Life is full of change and schools are cutting programs all over the United States. It is our job as parents to help our children adjust to change and assure them that school is a good place. Parents need to be involved at all times not just when things don't go your childs way. The schools are not always to blame.

I am very disappointed in this school. I was assured when my daughter started she would be tested for LD and would be provided the help she needed to succeed. This is the 3rd time she's been let down by the US public school system.

From our experience with General Mitchell things have gone from bad to worse since our beloved Mr. Slupski left. Our children are not being supervised well at this school.

Sad to say since our old Principal left Mr. Slupski...things have not been the same. Now I understand they are taking away not only our counselors but our Discovery Program. Plus there is not Nurse at the school. This worries me and I hope that our children can get best education they can and be safe while at school. My Child is above average and doing two grades higher then her, and without the Discovery Program I don't see how her assigned teacher can challenger her like this program did. As the teacher has more then one child to teach. I have not met the new Principal this year but I hope things improve and not get worse.

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.
