This school is terrible. The teachers don't care about the student body. I know plenty of students who get harrassed and yelled at, even beat up and all they do is yell "Hey." At them. They don't get in trouble. No one cares and the guidance is just a room where they get paid to listen and not actually help.

This school is great. The principal is interested in making sure that there is never a problem in the student body or with teachers. The counselors are very helpful and see every student at least once a year. Most teachers know what they are doing, but I feel that there are some that have slipped through the ropes and don t know what they are teaching. The math department lacks discipline in class. Out of the 3 years I went there, all the students in all of my higher level math classes cheated in class due to lack of discipline. I would highly recommend this school over Parker HS,.

Overrated school with Principal more interested in face time than educational time.

There are great teachers at Craig although you do have to show interest in your classes to get something out of them. The counselors are great, too. They care about their students and are quite helpful. Their music and drama departments are strong as well as some of the athletic programs. There is a wide range of extracurricular activities and a high level of parent involvement at this school.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
