They have a good bilingual program, and alot of good teachers that care about the students.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 25, 2010

Kids can learn their subjects in two languages and become bilingual.


Posted August 20, 2009

In my experience I've watched the school improve. I've loved the family events, especially Frost Fest. My children are happy and have learned a lot about all different cultures.

I respectfully disagree with som eof the low scores here. My two children attend Danz, and we have been delighted with the welcoming atmosphere, caring teachers and diversity. Our children are learning Spanish, and are becoming well prepared to live in the real world. I encourage you to come and visit our school!

I agree, the school needs some improvement on the way it is run and I have run into some major issues myself. Even being an involved parent I still would steer clear and want to change my child's school!

This school offer a bilingual program.. With that said it needs some improvement on the way it's run. There are major issues with-in the school. That include staff and teacher. Avoid this school at all cost unless your a parent that stays involved, otherwise steer clear!

Posted July 31, 2008

This school has gone through many challenges and struggles with parent support/networking. The school continues to be overcrowed along with other east side schools. The economical status of the school has decreased greatly affecting the quaility of education. Many of the teachers have moved to other schools and continue to move to other schools, leaving parents question the turnover off teachers.

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.
