I went to this school for 12 years and what a joke! I would never send any child of mine here. Teachers are real good at hiding problems at happen. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

I strongly disagree with the below statement, I came to Deerfield High as a freshman, and by my senior year, I was friends with almost everyone. The teachers are beyond excellent.

I was not impressed with this school at all. There are many cliques and if you were not born and raised in Deerfield you are an 'outsider'. I also feel that the administrative staff hides problems that occur at this school. After three years of putting up with this school I am removing my child from this district.

I feel that Deerfield Schools have done a wonderful job in educating students and keeping them on-track and involved with the community. Each teacher seemed very involved with each student and I am so happy that my two children attended the Deerfield Schools from K - High School Graduation. Geri Calabrese

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.
