I am a grandma of two girls, one in K and the other in 1st. I pick the girls up after school and watch them until mom gets home from work. I have not seen anything like it in all my years, the way all the kids from every grade know each other and how kind they are to each other every day I look forward to picking the girls up not only because I can't wait to see them but also because of the feeling i get from these kids they are this happy community and they include me , they all know who I am , my name and always say hello like they mean it. Allis is an wonderful place for a kid to start life outside of the home.

I as a parent think this is one of the best schools in Madison. It has wonderful teachers it has a great program at the end of the school year for 5th graders leaving. It is an awesome school that I would reccomend anybody and everybody to send their children to. I went to the school and my children went to that school it is just a joy to see some of my teachers and the classrooms.

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.
