Jeffery and its staff are fantastic. Very involved and caring. Glad our daughter is a student.

we haven't had a single problem with Jeffery. I'd hate to send my daughter anywhere else.

The principal needs to go(he has a major attitude). Mr. Pingatore was much better. Mrs. Warren,Mrs.Galusha & Miss Paulson they aree all wonderful teachers and people in general. This school so needs an up date. It looks so old and in need of paint,etc.

Navy family, our son attended here for the last few months of 4th grade and all of 5th grade. When toured the school the principle called each student we passed by name. It was a great school with wonderful teachers. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the student body could have been more welcoming to an outsider. For the most part they had all attended this school since kindergarten and didn't readily include a 'new kid'. Coming previously from schools with a large military population we were use to kids being more accepting then this. However with the move up to middle school in the same school district and everyone being the new kid that all changed and our son was accepted readily there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
