Posted October 3, 2012

This is one of the finest elementary institutions in the state. The academic programs are designed to challenge students in ways that most schools would never think of. Every member of the teaching staff is strong when it comes to teaching the children everything they need to know. All in all a great school that any parent would be pleased with.

Posted September 13, 2007

This school is a great school when it comes to the fluff. It lacks core curriculum and values. It does not teach mastery over math or place strong value upon adequate spelling. The focus seems to be more on being medicore and not upon childrens strengths and making them the best they can be. Staff is very resistant to parental input.

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.

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.
