Southport has great teachers and staff who provide a safe, supportive environment. Families are very involved, through volunteering and bringing kids to social events.

Everyone that makes up our school makes it a great school
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 22, 2004

My son is entering 5th grade at Southport after starting there in the 2nd grade. Every Teacher he's had is exemplary, the OHI/Spec Ed Support Teacher's are phenomenal and the Principal deeply invested in children & their parents. The Spec Ed Teachers are incredibly receptive and flexible & intelligent in working with our son, meeting our needs and seeking our input as parents to best learn about our son and help him thrive educationally and emotionally. Mr. Miller, the Principal, is a tremendous Administrator. Whenever I've had any concern and brought it to him, I received respectful, thoughtful and immediate resolution from him and his staff. He personifies a great educator, protector, facilitator & gentleman. You & your children are truly blessed if you live in the Southport Elementary District.

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.

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.
