This school is a pretty average public school. Counseling isn't great, you basically get the bare minimum of what help is to be offered to you. Classes aren't bad, but you don't get enough time to actually learn anything! 40 minutes isn't enough. Also, you don't get challenged enough in math. It's a struggle to get moved to another class that challenges you enough. On the flip side, there are some activities for students to enjoy.

This school is great! The teachers listen to you and teach you very well. The educating environment and nice friends help you understand things better.

My daughter just started school here. I think that the teachers are fabulous. They spend time with the students and make sure they are learning what they are supposed to.

HMS has some exempliary teachers that give 100% . The school administration does a good job organizing the students in smaller 'house' communites, and provides opportunities for the students to explore electives as well as ample extracurricular activities and clubs. They could improve on utilizing computer technology for education and communications. As the tests have indicated their language art's curriculum is strong. Overall, I feel it is a safe environment, conducive to learning.

I love this school. The teachers are wonderful! They are so involved in the student's education. There are tons of sports, after-school activities, and clubs. There are so many ways a student can apply their skills and build their education for the road ahead. Five stars!

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.
