HMS - the first and only school in my child's career as a student to have the special education staff able to meet my child's unique emotional and learning disabilities. They care!

It is a very clean and healthy school. It has very good rules and very nice teachers. The teachers are very respectful to you and your propety.Sometimes they throw in a little comedy!! It is always clean and very good lunches. Is has fruit, deli bar, alli cart, milk, and a main dish everyday. They help you if you dont know where your classes are. I would know because I went to that school. I encourage everyone to go to the Holmen district. If you dont feel safe(not that you would'nt) , you just ask a teacher and they can add rules if it sounds acceptable. There are a lot of parent involvment. Half of the stundents in the school, has parents involved. The bus drivers are very nice. They will help you if there are any problems at school. Thanks for reading thish go to the HOLMEN DISTRICT!!

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.
