Great school. Very caring and supportive staff. I love the small class sizes and the activities that gets the parents involved in the school. This school is more like a tight knit family. The staff members are very familiar with all the students and communicate very well with each other.

This is my children's second year at Cyber and I couldn't be any happier with the lesson plans and the great teaching staff. My children had gone to a private school for 8 years before attending Central City Cyber and I was was worried that they would not fit in or have an issue with going from a private to a charter public but Cyber has been a Awesome school and my children have mixed right in with no issues at all. My youngest is getting just what she needs to excel in every class and the teachers have been so helpful what her needs. I can't say enough about this school. No school is perfect but I would say they are pretty close.

I am a parent of a child(ren) that attends Central City Cyberschool. It's a good school with alot of issues. For one it's a teacher runned school. The principal is barely around and there has been reports of her sleeping in her office. When my children started I never knew or seen the principal, until literally months later and by then I had to figure out that it was her. The principal believes whatever the teacher tells her and bases her decision off of what the teachers say. Don't get me wrong, teachers opinions are greatly valued but it also depends on the situation. The school my child left, I was able to speak with the principal about anything or any concern I had. I do agree that the school is on top of the charts negative, it's alot of ribbing from the students, to much gossip between the teachers and students(whom the teachers believe all the time). They never go on field trips and when they do , it's based strictly on good behavior. I ever wonder if they realize that the reason why some students may act up is because of the lack of activities. To me when its warm enough outside, it seem as if the teachers make up reasons not to take the students outside?

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.

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.

Average

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.

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. Unfortunately, this school didn't provide enough survey responses to generate a climate rating.
