It's okay, but one thing that bothers me is the school's consistently bad test scores. The school does not seem to be able to make any real progress in this area. I do, however, like that the school has a uniform policy. Though I wish more American schools would do this, it does not really alter too much the environment of the school.

I recently moved to the area. I love the small class sizes and my childrens teachers pay great attention to detail. It is nice to know my children are in good hands. A very under rated school at a (2).

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.

Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count.
