Amazing school! My son is in a dual language program there and it's amazing. Love the teachers and all the rest of the staff. The good schools rating doesn't not give Glendale the credit it's due.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 5, 2013

My daughter is a 5th grader at Glendale and has attended since Kindergarten. She loves her school! Her teachers have always set the bar high and encouraged her to push her comfort zone and reach even higher. The past and present principals of this school have made it a point to know the names of each and every student, as well as their parents, which lends a very personal touch to the learning experience! The diversity in the student population as well as in the teaching staff is phenomenal. The emphasis on cultural diversity and bilingual classrooms have made this enviornment one that celebrates peoples differences and encouraged the students to open their minds to new experiences. This is a wonderful school which is helping to prepare my daughter for a future of diversity, acceptance and the challenges of higher learning!

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.
