Posted January 31, 2008

I am very happy with Westwood. There is a good mixture of youth and experience among the faculty. The student to teacher ratio is acceptable. The facilities are continuously improving. The curriculum emphasizes the fundamentals while still challenging the students with different teaching methods based on the diverse learning styles.

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.
