As a small district Melrose-Mindoro does a great job of balancing student needs with a limited budget. The staff from the superintendent down to the janitor are all caring and dedicated to the students and the school.

All of my children have attended Melrose-Mindoro Schools. For a small school, Mel-Min rates above the rest, which I think you can attribute this to the teachers throughout the years.

I feel that the Melrose Mindoro school district is a great school. I love all of the teachers that I have had to deal with. They take the time out when needed, they are very caring people. The staff is very help full and polite.

There is not much to ofer in the extracurricualar activties. Only the main sports like football, volleyball, cross country, soccer, basketball, wrestling, hockey, gymnastics, baseball, softball, track and field. There is also 2 (drama) plays a year, one of them is a musicical. There is other things like Academic Dethalon, Investment Club, DECA, band, choir, jazz band, pep band, Solo Ensable, Dorian Music, and some others I can't remeber right now.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. 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.
