Like every school, this school has some excellent, marginal and awful teachers. However, for the most part, I think the teachers are very dedicated and caring and many of the AP teachers are wonderful. The problem with this school is the adminstration is COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT especially the principal and guidance counselor. Their staff does what they can to make up for their lack of professionalism and general incompetency, but they can only do so much. The best advice to a new parent to this high school is to fill out all important scholarship, etc. forms yourself and then tell the guidance counselor and principal to "sign here" and then give it to the staff to make sure it gets completed and submitted properly.

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.
