The comments from 2004 are extremely outdated. Hudson Prairie continues to be an excellent school. Our children went there over 10 years ago. Hudson is growing and a new elementary school was built one year ago. Any classroom crowding (never really was any crowding) issues are gone. You will LOVE the Hudson community. We could not have been happier with the education all three of our children received in all grades K-12.

I couldn't be more impressed with teachers, counselor, staff and the awesome new leadership skiils and style of Ms. Prather. Teachers have gone the extra mile to make this an oustanding school for all students.

My family (3 children with one to go) has been at Hudson Prairie for 6 years and we have nothing but good comments about the school, staff and facility. Yes, a lot of the teachers are young but the core have an average of 10-15 years of experience. With the caliber of education the kids are getting, it is wonderful. The Parent Group is very present. The population of the school has grown due to the growing housing market in the area, no fault of Hudson Prairie. The teachers are always there for the parents who have a voice about their child's education, but like everything in life, as parents we hear what we want to hear, not always what is said!

The response from '04 is outdated and inaccurate. This school has fabulous teachers and staff that truly put the children first. It is a great school which is always trying to improve upon what is already a great infrastructure. We love it. My child has been here for three years, and I have no complaints.

Bursting at the seams. Staff is extremely young and has little time for any parent input that does not align with how it was taught in college . Young teachers still learning to teach at students expense.

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.
