CMS is a great place. The teachers engage the children to become responsible young people, respect themselves, their peers and teachers. These teachers go the extra mile to make each child successful. GO BULLDOGS !!!

This school has alot to offer the kids in terms of extra curricular activities. However as a parent of 4 cudahy students I find the school is lacking in the area of early detection of a failing student. I asked for help with my eldest student and was told to seek outside assistance. They only offered to test my child for Learning Disabilities even though he does not have any need outside or xtra tutoring to excell in school. We also had a lot of issues with personal bike dammage over the year due to unsupervised kids.

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.

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.
