Posted April 11, 2014

I have been so pleased with care and attention that my child has received in her two years at Rivercrest. The teachers are caring, deidicated and insightful. I have such great respect for the work they do. As the parent of a child with learning deficits, I have been overwhelmed by the support and caring that has been extended to my child. This is a school where all children are provided the opportunity to succeed.

I have two children attending River Crest. I could not be happier with the education and attention they receive. My youngest child has special needs and requires additional help and attention. River Crest has exceeded our expectations with him as well. I am so glad that their youngest learning years are here, laying a great foundation for their future!

This school may be good for some students, but it fails to address the needs of minority students. The few minority students at the school are not allowed the same advantages for additional support and resources to challenge them academically and allow them to advance as the white students. The culture of the school is one that expects and perpetuates underacheivement by minority students, or any student that is a square peg in a round hole. The school is also overcrowded and has larger class sizes than other schools in the district. This school is proof that a new and pretty building does not equal a high quality education for all students.

I can't think of one negative thing to say about River Crest. The teachers are dedicated, the principal has great vision, and the environmental focus is encouraged through teaching, not preaching.

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.
