I had a daughter who attended Nash and due to a mix up in boundaries when we moved a she had to transfer to pleasant prairie. I noticed a significant differance between the schools. Liking Nash much better. She stepped back an entire year in the curriculum when she switched. I now have a son there in a speech 4k program and he loves it. And I have noticed a significant improvement since he started in September. Love this school and will never send my kids anywhere else I'm the city.

Nash is a great school with loving staff and teachers. I have a few kids in the school. I also have a child with special needs and this school goes far and above what most schools do as far as services and making sure every child feels safe and comfortable. They are a very high tech school and the parent involvement is huge. Nash is the only school I would ever consider for my kids. They teach respect and that learning is fun.

My daughter goes to this school and loves it!!! I am surprised that it only earned six out of ten, because the teachers work very hard with students. I think this school deserves a higher rating!

Although only in its second year, this is an amazing school with an enthusiastic leader/principal! Our daughter has always been very advanced and I was concerned about her getting bored. To our surprise, they allow the kids to continue on to whatever level they can handle so the sky's the limit! Also love the family oriented feel. And we admire how the special needs kids are integrated with the mainstream classrooms. It has been a valuable lesson and our daughter has really taken to so many of the kids and helps them on a daily basis.

We are new to Nash and although I think it has some growing pains when referring to Special Needs kids, overall it is an excellent school with teachers who honestly care.

This school is very high tech and it is also clean and brand new. Parents get involed in many things. For example, a fund raiser. There are many academic programs as well. There are also many cool classes like art, music, sports and many other things as well. I love 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.
