I have 2 children that go here and I have always had wonderful feedback from my children about their teachers and other staff. They truly care about the students, in and out of school, even those who aren't their daily teachers. And the teachers work hard to help the students to strive in school, as a student, friend, role model to other kids, and as our children. I couldn't ask for better teachers for my kids.

Both of my children have gone to Gegan, and I have nothing but wonderful experiences! The staff is amazing, and it is refreshing to see how caring teachers are.

Fabulous world language program beginning in kindergarten. Also, innovative dual bilingual immersion program. Art and music programs are highly creative and positive. Cheerful, well kept, clean. Strings begins in 4th grade, band in 5th. Kids Save the Earth Club and Gifted programs. Numerous enrichment opportunities available thanks to strong PTO. A number of excellent teachers.

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.

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.
