Out of 5 starts, I'd give this school a 4. I'm a student there (last year!), and even though HMS, is great, we have a really bad bullying problem. I get picked on a lot, and for no reason! Many others feel this way too.

My children were not allowed a significant amount of information they needed to understand the process that they were to be graded by. I had a difficult time getting any responses from teacher's phone calls and emails and they did not accomodate my 'single parent' needs. example ..phone conferencing.....due to my work schedule etc...

This school has caring, and responsible students and hard-working staff. The small class sizes allow all students to receive more teacher attention. This school is now 5-8 rather than 6-8.

This school district is not one for raising special needs children, the school is only interested in state dollars, not the needs of the child.

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.
