I think the school should reconsider combining the fourth and fifth grade. More focus needs to be put on the fifth graders who will be entering middle school in the fall and this isn't possible with both grades together.

Despite continual budget cuts and a high proportion of students who qualify for free/reduced price lunch, Lindbergh is a thriving elementary school. A small school with between 230 and 260 students, Lindbergh boasts a diverse student body, small class sizes, and experienced teaching teams who work cooperatively with each other, parents and community members to create a vibrant learning environment for all children.

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 All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
