This school is a great place to send kids!! My daughter has had an amazing first experience and we are thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful community filled with excellent teachers, parents and community members!

I have had a child attend Forest Glen for two years now. I have been very impressed with the teachers thus far. They have always been very open and easy to talk with about my child's development. The teachers realize that all kids learn at a different pace and take this into account with their teaching plans. The office staff is very friendly and caring. The principal comes across as a very caring and interactive individual. She is always on top of what the kid's are doing and tries to develop relationships with the kids on an individual basis.

Forest Glen is a wonderful school. The teachers, the principal, the office staff, are all wonderful and make you feel so welcome. My 2 children went to Forest Glen and have nothing but positive remarks about it. They have still kept in touch with some of their teachers. They will always remember their elementary days at Forest Glen. Great School and great memories.

Teachers do not care about the children. When I approached the teacher my child had, she stated she had no time to talk. Talked to principle she was just as bad as the teacher. Do NOT send your child here...they are just a number! We left the school and now are so happy with our current school, St. Joseph School on Pilgrim.

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.
