We love this school, the teachers a very helpful and understanding. They care about your child/children and will send notes home just about every Friday telling you how your child's week went. A lot of the teachers also send a monthly here's what we are doing, and their always there to answer questions. We knew from the time we had our son he would go here. We just love the idea of him starting out in Pre-K and still being with 95% of those kids when he Graduates high school. Love that they have target time (almost like study hall) they work on skills they need improvements on. My husband might be getting a new job in a different state, I know will be very sad when and if we have to go. We will never find another school as great as Mound view/ Elk Mound school District.

We heard a lot of good things about this school before we moved here. Once living in town we started hearing horror stories about the school. I am happy to say that after 3 years in the school we are very very happy. They are willing to go out of there way for the kids. They have kept us informed about every situation along the way and what we can do to help. The only part that I am disappointed in is that they expect so much form the kids, but when they send a naughty note home it is so basic and vague that you have to call the school to find out what its for. I guess in that area I feel they need to practise what they preach, be descriptive list the facts and you know the who, what, when, where, how and why!

Very involved parent in the district including meetings, volunteering, contributions, working in the classrooms, etc. Very discouraged with our current principal as are many parents whom had the opportunity to work with her. I believe in the future and with that I believe I will see improvements and changes in our leadership. Until then, I am being very...very....very vigilent as my children are learning. I will monitor their abilities as they are being taught and I will also monitor their behavior....because as a parent, I live by the rule: To whom much is given...much is expected.

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.
