Posted June 17, 2013

I graduated from Logan in 2011, and cannot say my expirience there was pleasant. Every teacher I had seemed completely disinterested in their work. You got the feeling that these people became teachers simply to be teachers, not to share the breathtaking knowledge of science, math, or history, or English. Most teachers clearly didn't enjoy their job, or like their students all too much. The guidance councelors were not supportive, at least not toward me. I am on my way to being a success, but not because Logan showed me the possibilities. I wish I could have attended a better school, perhaps I would have had a better start after high school had I done so.

I have 2 daughters at Logan. They are having a great experience. I worry about all the budget cuts that never seem to stop.

I have 2 students who have graduated from Logan and 1 student attending. This is a diverse school in many ways which I feel is a strength that the staff tries to nurture. My kids have had an excellent education. The administration has such a positive attitude and really stays personally involved with students.

The administrators worry about some things they shouldn't. Some kids are being threatened daily to be beat up. This school is not safe and should bullying should be taken more seriously.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. 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.
