This is not a good school. The teachers are the typical liberal idiots one finds in education. They lack common sense in forcing children to play a dare game and divulge private information. If it were legit, the teachers would play too. Do not enroll your child here.

This school is pathetic. They have your child play a game called crossing the line where they ask them very personal questions that they have to answer or they threaten them with in school suspension.

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.
