I've only been going to lance for a year(6th grade). I honestly think lance is the most amazing school I've been to. I'm hoping to finish off my 7 &8 grade year here. The staff are so helpful and amazing!!! I love this school!!!!


Posted April 23, 2013

Lance might be theee best middle school in Kenosha. Everything at Lance is just absolutely AMAZING! The teachers are great! The education is great. Lance is just amazing. I only went there for 8th grade but i wish i had went there all 3 years of junior high. Depending on which house you're in. If you're in Momentum house in 8th grade consider yourself blessed. Power house might be 2nd best and Light house is the worst. Momentum does all the fun things. I was in Momentum house and it was by far the best house. Lance is an amazing school. My brother will be going there next year. I'm a freshman at Tremper and i really wish that Lance was like a 6-12 grade school. I loved it so much. Lance Lightning all they! April 23, 2013

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.
