I have never had a prblem with the teachers or the staff, I really like this school and my kids love it as well.
—Submitted by a parent

This school has many subtle discriminating issues and it lacks of communication with student's family even if family is very involved with the child. They do not encourage diversity and its very reclusive. Use your own judgement, but for sure I would not reccomend it if your child needs special attention.

Bose is a great place to send children. THe staff at Bose cares about the progress and growth of students. It is a very family-friendly school with lots of activities and support for various aspects of learning. Kids who attend Bose are very lucky!!

Bose is a good school if you can get the teachers to communicate with the parents. They do not inform you on how your child is doing unless you ask. They want parents to be involved but once you are they tell you that you are too involved and ask you not to help out anymore. Out of the years that my child has gone there, there has only been one or two teachers that have actually communicated with us and has done an outstanding job.

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.
