My dad went to Preble and my brother and I went there, and my wife went to school at Preble. We all had great educations, teachers encouraged learning and advanced learning. The tech ed department was top notch when I went through it. I won several state competitions because of it. I love the school. Yes there have been fights it is a large school and there are bound to be people that dont get along but it is usually the same people who repeatedly get into fights. The sports at Preble are fantastic, the coaches do not just focus their efforts on the star players but on developing the weaker players so that they will improve. I hope to send my children to school here. Your experience anywhere is what you make of it.

I have three children at Preble High right now, one will graduate this spring. I have found this last year that the administrative staff; principal associate principals, and especially the staff in office, all need remedial courses in management conduct, and need to understand they are the role models and are not supposed to get involved in the gossip that goes on among the students. I realize it is a very large school, which is why the school board needs to take more interest in who they are placing in positions that are dealing with children from all walks of life.

My son loves Preble High School & so do I. The variey of classes & extracurricular activities are amazing. There is something for every student. The teachers are amazing & my son looks forward to going to school. The principal is caring & involved as well as the teachers & staff. The advanced courses he is taking & will continue to take would not be available @ several other high schools or private schools. I would put this school up against any other public or private school in our area & I think it would certainly come out on top!

I have had three children graduate from Preble High School from 2004-2011. They have received an excellent education from caring,competent teachers. There are numerous opportunities for all students to succeed in academics, sports, music, leadership, business etc. The number of AP classes that are available are fantastic. Trying to get parent involvement and to help each child reach their highest potential is a top priority.

We had 1 kid graduate from Preble and 3 others that went there for different times. Our experience was terrible while the kids were going there. The teachers were not helpful at all and the fighting there was every day. We moved to the De Pere school district where it was night and day. Teachers are much more caring and all three kids' gpa's went up big time. I would not recommend this school at all!

Great music programs, especially for vocal music and musical theatre. Excellent array of AP and advanced courses. Decent sports programs across the board. The school seems to run smoothly, without a lot of administrative snafus.

I now live in Florida but used to attend PHS and it is the best school I've ever been to. The teachers were awesome, ghe students were friendly, the food was good, and there was never any real conflict. It's also got a good layout and by room number you can roughly estimate where a room is. It is a great school for any one with a panoramic selection of elective classes and also good teachers to go along with them. Preble is an awesome school with great school spirit and everyone feels at home. Kind of makes me miss it.

I have had one child graduate from and have one attending preble High school with another child yet to enter Preble. I think for the size of the school the school is run with great efficieny and great leadership. It is the 3d largest HS in the state of WI. and it is run with an emphasis on discipline, yet a child is allowed to grow and expand his/her horizons. I can send my children there and as best as possible be secure that they will be coming home from school at the end of the day. Both students that are attending Preble have earned a 3.70 and 4.00 grade point averages. They are good students and I think that Preble High School played a part in that.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
