I love this school and so do my children. The teachers her are amazing. They are small and the kids are kind to each other. They are a charter school and they do many field studies with the children. I feel that the work is advanced and that my children got an amazing head start in life because they got to go to this school. The only bad thing is, is that they have to leave this school.

Park School has the number one pre-k teacher in the school district. Vivian Flanagan is outstanding with her stuedents and with the parents. Anyone that gets the chance to have her as a teacher will never forget her. I would recomend pre-k at Park to everyone!

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.
