This is an excellent school, I am not sure why the rating is only a 7!?


Posted September 22, 2010

My daughter entered Riverside Elementary in kindergarten for the 2009/2010 school year and I could not be happier. Growing up in this town, there was a history of this school being closed first when an elementary school needed to be closed for budgetary reasons. I would fight tooth and nail if they tried to do that now. The teachers are amazing, the principal knows every student, their parents and their siblings by name and academically it is outstanding. I can not gush enough about how proud I am to be a Riverside parent. Their PTA is not only active, they actually care. This is truly an amazing school. :)

Two of my children went to that school years ago and we loved the teachers and the rest of the staff.

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.
