They taught my 5 year old how to read! Amazing. They also have a lot of fun holiday-type, and other after school events and activities throughout the year. Great school so far.

My First Born went to this school in 1997, and the teachers were great, rarely was there a problem. Now my Second Born is attending and everything seems to have changed. No yelling, no pencils, or cards outside. Not to mention the constantly shifting principals, four while my First born attended, three with my Second Born.

The staff is great but they lack in their educational direction. The school does not believe in teaching spelling until the 4th grade. Way too late in my opinion.

The staff is outstanding! Wonderful small school atmosphere with big district advantages. The principal is always out and about with the students and rarely in her office. Respectful atmosphere. Care is given that every students needs are being met - from those who need extra help to those who are advanced.

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.
