A very real sentiment among struggling students is to fail their classes and just take credit recovery. This consists of just showing up to an abbreviated lecture series and light/easy work. The students end up passing and graduating with no real increase in skills.

TOO BIG of a school! It feels like a college rather than a school. It seems that the kids are just a number instead of a name. My daughter has a 4.0GPA but she can't even spell "average." As much as I try to teach her correct spellings, I'm having a hard time to get her teachers to take it seriously. How in the world did she get a 4.0 when she spells "skateing or loveing?" I can only do so much without her teacher's help without having to homeschool her.

Our new policy just passed - Cheaters may now retake tests. At our school we condone cheating - just take another test if you get caught.

Because of its dedication to teaching


Posted August 26, 2005

This is a good school, but it is a little large. The tech ed program is pretty good, but they seem to be more focused on teaching the 'average' student. Since my son was a freshman two years ago, they have dropped almost all computer related classes. The band program is great, but like everything else, they are losing funding to give teachers raises and pay for sports.

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.
