Small in size, large in heart. That about describes the Johnson Creek Bluejay's students and staff. As a seventh grader, I was nervous about the step up from elementary school to 'up the hill'. Now looking back, all of my concerns seem stupid. In the first week, the staff were all more than happy to open a lock or point a lost little me in the right direction. All of my acedemic classes are fun and educational. The small learning enviornment provides a lot of one-on-one time. The extracurriculars offered are as large in numbers as they are in variety. In addition to sports, there is a number of academic clubs, including Forensics and Spanish Club. Our high school band is phenomonal. This year the band is traveling to Florida to perform. This little school truly has tons of dedicated teachers helping us to make our best better.

Johnson Creek is a small school trying to compete in a tough world. Sports programs are excellent, extracurricular activities are available, and most of the teachers appear to be trying hard. The school has a history of problems in the Special Ed department. They appear to be working on it, with a new department leader and they have managed to keep a special ed teacher for more than a year for the first time in many years. Teacher and administration turnover in the high school appears to be higher than in the elementary school. The staff does not appear to work well together and there are underlying tones of unrest that make me nervous as a parent with three more students yet to go through this schools system. In a rapidly growing community, school enrollment is not increasing. Yet the area parochial schools are growing rapidly, which makes me wonder why.

Johnson Creek High School is a very well-balanced school. The school has everything to offer for anyone going on to college and also classes for children thinking of going into the trades, like building or auto-mechanics. The school is small and everyone knows your child's name and are very active in helping kids to make the right decisions. There are many extra-curriculars for the athletes and many for the child that would rather be in the Astronomy Club than football! It is a great school that really cares about kids. A big plus is the fact that the drug and violence problem that most schools face is practically non-existant here.

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.
