This is an amazing school. The only thing that I would change is that so many kids take this school and faculty for grantid. The school offers so many great things and there is something for someone in every area of interest. This is a great school and I would reccomend it to anyone.

I am one of those parents who cannot wait for my child to be out of this school. There is little contact between parents and faculty. Procedural decisions are made without parent input- all the time. This principal is much more interested in being a friend to teachers at the expense of the student. NOTHING happens at this school without the principal's fingerprints all over it. Very discouraging. Can't wait to get out of this school district.

De Pere High reflects the values of the community it is located in. These values are small-minded, hypocritical, and, most saddening of all, limiting. This is a district where everybody is gifted and talented, where sports heavily outweigh the fine arts in importance, where you can be in a school-sponsored club against drugs and alcohol during the week, but go home and get completely hammered over the weekends. There are a handful of brilliant teachers, Ms. Rockstroh in the math department and Mr. Hess in science both being of a particularly excellent calibre. The TAG program (at the middle and high school levels) is, ironically, based on standardized test results, the very thing that TAG students often times need to fight around. If you are a parent, and of a gifted and talented child in particular, be prepared to fight for their best interests: this school and community will not.

A great school There is a club or activity for everyone. Great teachers and a great facility for learning, the only criticism I would give is that there is need for more focus on the arts rather than athletics. Otherwise, great events, great teachers, and an overall great experience.

De Pere High School is a great place. The teachers are excellent and the facility is immaculate. My son is being given a great education and I cannot wait until my other son starts school there this year.

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.
