This school provides the spectrum of classes and activities for the spectrum of students, from SE to GT. This school also recognizes and rewards hard work. The parent community is outstanding and the teacher / staff relationships with parents / administration are excellent. The parent who takes an active, involved role in their child's education will not be disappointed.

I am horribly dissapointed in this school. My ex husband purchased a house in this school district in order to give our son the opportunity to go to a "great school". It has been anything but. Our son is an exceptionally smart kid (scored in the 90% on WKCE's) but has behavior issues so was given an IEP (individual education plan) This seemed like a great thing so they could work with him and help guide in the right direction. He has spent more time this year in the office than the classroom. They have had poor follow through on his IEP. And he has been the victim of continued bullying. If your child doesn't fit the mold don't expect success here..

This school has no more Hp classes to give advanced students a little push. There aren't many challenges for more advanced students. There are a lot of helpful teachers thaat can help you if you need help though.

This is a great caring and wonderful school. The students are one big kaleidoscope- not a melting pot because there is some originality amongst the students. They are a very intelligent group of students. The school is very good at targeting your childs needs. Hp classes (high performance) give the more advanced students a little extra push. And specialized classes for mentally handicapped and the ones who just aren't quite at the level of retarded students have very great teachers. This school is wonderful and I highly suggest to send all of your children here.

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.
