This school might have a good test scores. However this school does not do anything for bullying! My son has been bullied for more than two years. Teachers are pretty good at answering my emails and take actions; however, the principal never answers emails concerning bullying at school. Even one bullying insistent finishes the next one always happen. I have never seen or heard of any activities promoting Anti- bullying at this school at all, So my children I witnessed how often the children laughed at a bullied kid while bullying is happening. As I write this comment I am very angry and sad.

not real happy with this school once I have seen for my self first hand what has happen. a number of teachers are great unless your child has the 5th grade teacher she is mean yells at kids, and she bullys kids if a child has trouble learning she makes the child go to the room were the I.E.P TEACHER IS Ms D has no patiences for children. I have seen first hand Ms D shredding homework in the teachers break room. Ms D has lowered a number of kids self ESTEEM by making example out of children in from of their peers which in turn makes student bully others students. when you bring this to the E.C.C then it only made matters worst because your child gets picked ony the TEACHERS I strongly RECOMMEND a different SCHOOL. I am very disappointed in the way this school is run . I feel this school lacked the leadership.

I am continually awed by the leadership of this school. The teachers are phenomenal and really seem to be hand-picked for each child. On top of that, the facility is the best in Franklin. With an awesome gym that has a full stage also, it feels like 'home' when you walk through the doors. We feel blessed to have randomly selected this school when moving here, because we definitely chose the BEST!

Great school. I used to go there a long time ago when the former principle was there, Mr. Trotier. It was a great school and always a warm environment.

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.
