Lincoln Elementary I love this school! My son started attending Lincoln his 3rd grade year. He was struggling with ADD and was only at a first grade reading level. The staff went above and beyond to work with us on his education. By the end of third grade my son had made it the desired reading level. He entered the fourth grade confident and ready to tackle the year. Since then I have had 2 daughters attend Lincoln as well. Overall I'm very happy with this school and it's staff. Don't forget to check out all the family activities this school does. Great fun!

I have mixed feelings about Lincoln. My son, who will be in third grade, really likes it but i feel the staff may be too hard on the children. I understand that they are trying to make the children bcome responsible but they seem to forget that they are just kids.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
