Star Center is a wonderful school. The staff is always pleasant and willing to help. My daughter is in her first year here, and I am so excited to watch her learn & grow throughout the coming years. She is challenged enough to not become bored, as each child is at a different learning pace. I just love this school!

I love this school the teachers are very involved and they really care. They love their jobs and kids and they are very supportive. The principal is completely involved with the activities and with the kids. She knows the kids by name. There are activities afterschool and kids love them. My daughter has been in this school for the last two years and she loves going to school, I guess this attitud speaks by itself.

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.
