A student teacher at this school, I came in 'scared' to work with students who were in middle schools because of all the horror stories I've heard about middle schoolers, however, this school gives me hope that at least in this school teachers are able to help students, that students will do well. Middle school is one of the most critical time of a student's life and you should pick no other school than this one. The teachers actually build relationships with students not just hope for the end of the year!

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.
