The principal of River View Middle School is Daniel Joseph is one of the worst principals. This school would do much better with better leadership. Bullying is a big problem in this school. The do not see the problems and fix them. As for the teachers, some really good teachers at this school.

this school is cool beans best school by far the bullying wasnt even real it was a scam btw the kids are so awesome and best wrestling team ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Posted January 13, 2014

As is the case with ALL schools throughout the country, there are bullying issues. This school is pro-active and very student focused in regard to safety and caring. The teachers are outstanding , the administration has a direction and the district vision is focused and achievable. All schools have challenges...River View sees the challenges as opportunities to learn and improve. Community Member

I recently learned of a child being bullied in your Schools, You need to look more into this matter!!!!


Posted April 15, 2013

My kid will not go to a school that supports bullies. Get rid of the school police officer and teach your teachers to help stop bullying and I may reconsider.


Posted March 28, 2013

It came to my attention that a kid is being bullied in your school last name Bent. we as parents will get to the bottom of this and this school will be reported to the governor if nothing is done to protect against bullying

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.
