I am an ex-student of Elcho School that recently moved, but what I can say is that the rating for this school isn't up to par with what I learned and experinced there. I go to one of the top 10 greatest schools in America, yet in 7th grade, and still learning line segments which I learned in 4th grade in Elcho. Bulling is a problem that I have faced daily in my school experiances, sure there was some in Elcho but very little compared to what i deal with in the supposed perfect school I go to now.

I have 3 children enrolled in the school, and I have been very frustrated for the last year, I have one child who I beg to get extra help for and we never get the help and another child who is very excelled, but there are not programs offered for that either, in my opinion, yes the small class sizes are nice but what is really offered to the students other then a diploma that is alot of the time handed out so that the students don't have to de dealt with.

Class sizes are small which is great for the kids. Teachers care and the majority go all out for the students. Overall the kids are great kids. It seems to be a caring district.

Well... it's true we don't have many things to do in Elcho and the sports programs are decreasing. But I would say there is a lot less arguing and most of the people are nicer than you have in bigger schools. How can you expect to have large numbers in sports if there isn't that many people in the school? I'm sorry but we are one of the only school in our conference who has cheerleaders. Granted we have better opportunities if we go to a bigger school but it's our choice or our parents choice to go to Elcho. We aren't that far behind.

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.
