The place to find the current test score data is winss.dpi.wi.gov/ Please view with skepticism any comment from a parent who would allow her own child to remain for 5 yrs. in a "horrible" school. Instead look at the scores, school climate surveys and MPS website for current data. Negligent parents have a right to their opinions, but that opinion has little validity in the world of concerned consumers.

Regardless as to what anyone says, Grantosa Drive schools is one of the best schools in the Milwaukee Public School District. Our school of one of the schools that is not on AYP and the only time that it was on the needs improvement list was two years ago for special ed challenges. The school has an extremely supportive staff who go that extra mile to ensure that each child is educated. I would recommend any parent to send their student to this school.

I am the Spouse of a Teacher at Grantosa Drive Elementary School . The code of living anywhere, as well as with anyone is : ' If you don't have anything nice to say about anything , then don't say anything at all '. Well , that saying holds true here. I see by running across this survey , there is only one persons view to criticize this school. If the school is that ' bad ',then whey aren't there more parents writing bad reports on this school ? My Spouse, as well as all the other Faculty and Staff at Grantosa do a 'Great' job teaching all students who attend Grantosa . The Principal of Grantosa is a very experienced principal with years under his belt. And the teachers are very dedicated to the cause of teaching children , and turning them into future role models in their community. T

This school is horrible. I see why the test scores are so low. Dont send your child there. My child has been there for 5 years and may I say that he may be the smartest one there. But, the teachers are out of order.

GreatSchools Rating

What makes up this rating?

Academic rating
3 / 10

What is the new GreatSchools Rating?

Rating legend

average
Average
Above
average

Our rating (from 1 to 10) reflects a school's overall performance. The higher the rating, the more likely the school will prepare your child for the future, so choose an above-average school (8-10) if possible. For average schools (4-7), do careful research and look for evidence that the school has high-quality programs. For below-average schools (1-3), take caution; a low-performing school may not provide the instruction or environment your child needs to learn, and you may need to supplement classroom lessons at home.

Academic rating

The academic rating is made up of equally-weighted parts: students' test scores, their academic growth (for elementary and middle schools) and their readiness for college (for high schools). The graphs below compare this school's results in each area to other schools in the city and state.

Average

*Test scores are based on the 2013 WSAS results from the state of Wisconsin.

**The academic growth rating measures how schools affect student test score improvement over time in reading and math. This data is from 2013 and is provided by the Value-Added Research Center and Milwaukee Public Schools.

Climate ratings

This rating encompasses five elements of school climate: safety and cleanliness, respect and relationships, expectations for students, teacher collaboration and support, and parent involvement. This school's climate ratings are the result of GreatSchools' analysis of teacher survey data from the Spring 2013 School Climate Survey developed by Milwaukee Public Schools.

We rated schools on …



Keeping things safe, clean, and orderly.

This rating evaluates a school's environment, based on its safety, order, cleanliness and more. More highly rated schools have well-kept facilities and a safe environment conducive to learning. Schools rated poorly may have a chaotic environment, conflicts among students or even theft or violence.


Creating healthy, respectful relationships.

This rating measures whether the school has a positive learning environment and cultivates an atmosphere of respect. At a school with a higher rating, it's more likely that the school's culture celebrates hard work and learning, students treat their peers and teachers with respect and class lessons reinforce character strengths such as kindness and tolerance. A school with a lower rating may have a weaker learning environment or allow disrespectful behavior.


Promoting high academic expectations for all students.

This rating sheds light on the academic expectations that teachers have for students. At a school with a higher rating, educators are more likely to stress academic success, ask kids to work hard and expect kids to be college-bound. At schools with lower ratings, it may be more acceptable for students to put in average or minimal effort, perform poorly on tests and lack strong academic goals.


Supporting its teachers.

This rating indicates how teachers feel about their school's professional environment. At a highly rated school, teachers are more likely to work well together, learn from one another, have opportunities for professional development and feel supported by the administration. At a school with lower ratings, teachers may not interact much, feel appreciated or have much input in school decisions and policies.


Informing and including families.

This rating reflects how much communication parents can expect from this school. A highly rated school is more likely to have regular communication (e.g. newsletters, emails, and meetings) between administrators, teachers and parents. This may include information about student progress, homework help and volunteer opportunities. At lower-rated schools, parents may not get regular updates and may feel less welcome at school.
