The staff members at Lake View school are committed to meeting the needs of each of our students. We have wonderful, supportive families that are dedicated to working together with the Lake View staff to achieve a positive and successful elementary environment. We continue to build a strong educational foundation for our students through our focus on positive behavior and rigorous, differentiated curriculum. I hope to enjoy many more years of service within the Lake View community!

Madison Metropolitan School Distrist and Lake View Elementary School have lost the ideal of what an elementary education should be, the three R's. This school puts so much emphasis on being politically correct, making sure no child is left behind and in general, turning the place into a Mister Rodger's Neighborhood. My daughter is in the fourth grade and still counts on her fingers to do simple arithmetic operations. Her writing is seldom edited by her teacher, there is so little homework, it's difficult to know in what direction learning is taking place, much less any progress. In spite of what I consider a categorically poor education, she get's stellar reports. Standard is too low. Too much time is spent on fluffy activities like Weird and Wacky Day, the Talent Show, Swing Choir, Pajama Day, Popcorn Day, Donut Day, Bring Your Pet to School Day, Halloween party... Anything but a serious encounter with academics. The school budget for Madison is $308 million for one year. There are 25,000 students, so that's over $12,000 per student per year, and the school board is crying for more money in a referendum. One of the board members says the schools are on the brink of destruction!!! On top of this, permission slips are being sent home to go on this outing, or this field trip, or ... At the bottom, the schools have their hands out for $5.00 here, $3.00 there, $25.00 now. Throwing more money at the schools will not solve the problem. Get back to basics, Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic. Please.

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.
