This is an awesome school! All of my children are above average in every subject. The teachers take their time with each student!
—Submitted by a parent

Excellent school! My childs' teacher is amazing, she has really taken the time out to help him with his behavior problems and takes extra care to make sure his academics are up to par, as he fell behind last year. The children here are also very nice. This school just has a great atmosphere. I am very impressed with the way my sons teacher has helped him to be the best he can be. When other schools treated him as a lost cause, this school stepped up to the plate and helped change his mind about school in general. I am so very happy and grateful. The teacher and I keep in close contact with either notes or phone calls daily, and I am never left in the dark about his days or assignments. This is an exceptional school.

One of the very few "small town" feeling schools. This may be a larger city, but as far as this school goes, I feel like I'm in a small town. The administration and teachers are just amazing. I feel very lucky to have my children in this school!

I have just completed my student teaching at this school and I am so very impressed with it that I would almost consider switching my child to this school!! The teachers are excellent, the curriculum is top notch and the energy there is awesome!! I am impressed!!!

This school has excellent teachers, however, there seems to have been a decline in behavioral expectations at this school hopefully its just a temporary slump.

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.
