I was so proud of my child attending this school loved her teacher and the staff and the principal she's always involved in every child's education and always there to lean new faces. Loved this school, small school good for the teachers and staff to get to know their small class of students and really focus on each and everyone's needs and talent. Great school great neighborhood

We are so proud to send our children to Howard Elementary! It's one of the smaller schools in the district, and there are so many benefits to that. The entire staff really has a desire to get to know the kids as individuals and lifelong learners. They go out of their way to help the kids achieve. I volunteer in my kids' classrooms and am thrilled with the learning enviornment. The principal also is dedicated to making sure the lines of communication between home and school are open and flowing. I can't say enough positive things about this school and the people who work there!

Howard Elementary School has been a Godsend for our family. You see my Grandson is autistic. Everyone at Howard Elementary has been supported to not only my Grandson, but every member of the family, When he was first diagnosed we had no idea what the future held for him. He is now in third grade. And the sky's the limit because all the love, understanding and encouragement he has received at Howard Elementary School!!!!!!!

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.

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.
