KM requires more from their students than most public schools. Yes, it's harder for students to get good grades but they end up with a superior education, and are fully prepared to attend an excellent college or university. My children have been able to take college level courses, that count for their degree, by their senior year.

This school is terrible!! BEWARE- DO NOT SEND YOUR STUDENT HERE!!! My daughter attended this school and all the blue ribbon means is that they care more about politics than the kids they are supposed to be teaching. My daughters state scores have consistantly gone down each year here. She came to this school as a straight A honor student and now struggles to get Bs because the teachers REFUSE to help students. There are very few exceptions. They dont understand what a salary is and can not work 1 minute later than their contract reads. This school makes me sick!!! We are looking at private schools or Waukesha public schools next year.

I ABSOLUTELY HATED THIS SCHOOL! as one of the students that went there, i was picked on and bullied for being, tall, strong, and liking to learn! and the teachers and principle did NOTHING! If you are a new student, and excel in math, they will not excel you due to the fact that they have no records at that school. The teacher's are terrible, The lunch program is greasy, fat, and expensive, and the hallways and classrooms are over crowded. the buses are routed horribly (i had to get up at 5:00 to get the buss at 6:00, to get to school at 7:15 and i live about 8 miles away from the school!) This is the most poorly run school I've ever been to (and I've been to a lot). i now go to University Lake School and i love it there.

KMMS is a fantastic school The teachers, principal and all of the staff are very supportive of the kids. All of the kids that I talk to love going there.

I absolutely love going to this school! I wake up in the morning excited, as for most kids wake up in the morning complaining. I love KMMS!

Kettle Moraine Middle School is fantastic! Wonderful, nice, helpful, and extremely friendly teachers! They also challenge us quite a bit. I am also extremely happy with the music coarses that they offer us! Stellar!

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.
