Flynn is a wonderful school! The staff are very caring and have high expectations of students. I love sending my kids to Flynn.

This is a friendly school in a small neighborhood. I am of the younger genreation, but the OP is right; its exactly how I would imagine schools were at one time in the past. The staff knows each and every child by name, their siblings, family etc. They work very hard to make sure each child lives up to their potential. I would not want my kids to go anywhere else.

Flynn is a great school. The entire staff is dedicated, well educated, and caring. They go above and beyond . The children in Flynn are happy and show great enthusiasm to learn.

I don't think it is a good school at all, it doesn't teach them well in math. If a student wants more challenging assignments you have to sign out paperwork.

This school is wonderful! With lots of one-on-one between teacher and student, I feel students at Boyd Elem. really benefit from these awesome teachers. They have lots of field trips and the parent involvement is just super! I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a great traditional school for their kids that's ' just like our's was way back then'. The staff is very attentive and friendly as well and I can't say enough about about their safety every student in the building seems to know one another and watches out for the others.

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.
