Posted May 13, 2011

The principal referenced in the previous reviews is no longer employed by the district. The current principal is very inexperienced, but at least she doesn't bully students, staff, and parents, like the previous one. The staff there contains some fantastic teachers (2 with national board certifications, 2 Crystal Apple Award finalists) and some not-so fantastic teachers. However, the place still functions as a "holding tank" for kids until they can escape to the high school.

Principal allows the students to name call, swear and bully other students. Even when it is called to his attention, he does nothing about the situation. Schools are always saying they need parents to back them up, but schools also have a responsibility to not let students get away with things at school that they are not allowed to do at home.

Called the 'black hole'. Little or no oversight. Principal is rarely in the bldg.

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.

If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. 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.
