I have sent 1 child through and have another currently in 7th grade. I have nothing but GREAT things to say about the teachers and support staff at Franklin. The education of the staff, the caring & the involvement of the teachers and staff is incomparable, they truly care about "their" kids and their education. The culture at Franklin is very diverse and the students are open minded good kids. The diversity alone is worth the Franklin Experience. I would recommended Franklin to ANY family moving into the area. I have read the "scores" of schools and done my comparisons, but I am also intelligent enough to know they do not tell the whole story. My children have gotten a great education at Lincoln, Franklin and West High School. If you,as a parent care and pay attention to your child's school life, the resources available in the listed schools are phenomenal. I have found the education to be the equivalent private schools.

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.
