Lakeshore has been great. We have a daughter who struggles academically and staff has recognized her needs. We have reached out for help and they have risen to the occasion with advice, compassion and affection for her. Glad to have both my children at this school.

We have loved Lakeshore! The teachers are amazing and work so hard for the students. The staff knows all the kids and it is a warm and welcoming environment. For two years now, the teachers have worked hard to provide a challenging environment to keep up with our overachieving daughter:) Lakeshore has low test scores which made us nervous to buy our house initially, but we couldn't be happier with our choice of neighborhood and school! The test scores do not paint the whole picture. We have been nothing but pleased!

Lakeshore Elementary is always doing different things to make sure they have enough funding for all the activities that the children need, throughout the year. Also, they do fundraisers for children who've been affected by different tragedies, such as death in the family, and so on. The principle is an amazingly kind-hearted man, and the teachers are more than willing to work with each child individually, if need be. Lakeshore Elementary School cares for our kids and our families!

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.
