Excellent School! Great teachers and very family oriented. The principals and teachers listen to parents and students and embrace change.

This school is excellent. My child has been attending Annie Jackson since she was in Kindergarden - the principle is all about the students and increasing their learning. The teachers are all amazing and make school a fun, accepting place to attend. The music program is wonderful with a christmas concert that is above par! Great school, great neighborhood!

Excellent education and reading program. My 3rd grader (since Kindergarden) loves going to school. All of the teachers I've met are top-notch. A Blue Ribbon school that excells in motivating students to learn through quality programs and fun. Parents are very involved, and the school is accepting of input. Very secure and safe. School monitors watch kids closely. The kids do need more time for PE (just 2x) and lunch (I can't finishing my lunch when I go with my daughter), but overall my child is far ahead of my older child who went to elementary school in Franklin (near Milwaukee). The school could also use an after school sports program before the 5th grade, or sports clinics (but I believe this is a district policy).

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.
