On the topic of test scores, a statement from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction acknowledges changes to how the cut scores on the WKCE were tabulated in 2012-13. According to a DPI statement "Due to this change in cut scores, comparisons between 2012-13 performance levels and prior years performance levels will no longer be appropriate for reading and mathematics." (http://oea.dpi.wi.gov/oea_profdesc) As a result, all schools saw dramatic changes in historically consistent student achievement. It is incumbent upon each parent to visit a school and make an informed choice about the right fit for their child. Eastbrook Academy encourages you to visit and see the program in action. EBA also conducts national based standardized testing for all our students. Please visit http://www.eastbrookacademy.org/academics/competition.htm to see how our students are achieving.

This school was very good when my children started going there. There was new leadership and the school completely changed into a new school that I did not even recognize. There was even teachers that were bullying kids. It was not an atmosphere of love. I had to take my children out because of not wanting their spirits crushed. It was a "religious school" but not a christian school if you know what I mean. I am very happy my children do not go there anymore. I hope by the recent comments on here(providing they are not fake and generic). That the school has changed into a more loving positive environment.

The best information I can provide about Eastbrook is that I feel confident that my child will graduate and not only be prepared for college, but prepared to handle many of the challenges facing young people today. I am grateful that we have found a school that provides the Christian foundation we provide to our child at home and that this woven into an excellent cirriculum.

The school is a great place to work and to teach. It is a very rigourous, diverse and loving environment. I love the support of my fellow staff members, and the community we have among parents, students, and staff. The small class sizes allow each student to feel connected and to have their individual questions answered. Christ is at the center of all that we do. I love working in an environment where children from the inner city as well as the suburbs learn, play, and grow up together. i am blessed to be working at the Academy.

Eastbrook Academy has been and still is a God-send to our family... A diverse school with an extremely rigorous academic program that is affordable with small class sizes. What more can a family ask for??? We have three children attending EBA this year, 12th, 4th and 1st grade. Our senior is being given exceptional help w/college guidance, scholarships, class selection, ACT's, etc. The two youngest started in K4 and prayerfully will be able to graduate from EBA as well. Kids leave well prepared for college, the world and life. We've considered relocating to another state, but EBA has always been the deciding factor. Where else in the country can we have all of this wrapped in a Christ centered environment? We've looked and it's next too impossible. I would and have recommended this school to everyone. It is rigorous. It is loving. It is fun. It is Eastbrook...A well rounded academic and social experience. We thank God for this place everyday!!!

Eastbrook Academy has been a wonderful experience for our children. We have had children in the school for 8 years and have seen many changes. Through it all the Academy has held to its founding principles and maintained its standard of excellence. The school has high expectations of students, and has a high opinion of their ability to meet that challenge. The Academy is a Choice school based on a classical education model and anchored by a faith in Christ. We have found that to be a perfect mix for our children's education.

Eastbrook Academy exists to support families from diverse backgrounds in the academic and spiritual development of their children for college preparation and life.The Academy is founded to impart a rigorous classical education in a loving environment committed to Christian living. The teachers and staff definitely live this mission statement out daily in their personal and professional lives. I love the small class sizes and professional treatment. I wouldn't want our 3 children anywhere else!

EBA is a great school full of great teachers, administrators (after a couple of bumpy years) and great students! The school is very academic but the atmosphere is comfortable and not rigid. Eastbrook rocks as a diverse school and, most importantly, a Christian school providing Christian values and examples to our next generation.

Eastbrook Academy is a great school that serves the city of Milwaukee. It also reinforces the Christian values that we teach at home. My children have had great experiences at EBA.

If you're willing to work hard and want to succeed, Eastbrook Academy is an excellent school for you. The community between peers and teachers alike is unlike any other--truly wonderful, but as diverse as can be. You will be exposed to many differing opinions, creating great opportunities for healthy debates, knowledge of diversity, and acts of forgiveness. The outstanding academics assuredly prepare students for higher education. Most importantly, students are taught how to think for themselves. Centered on Christ, classes convey valuable information (the what) accompanied with applications (the why). Eastbrook doesn't "dumb down" academics to focus on spirituality, like many Christian schools do; rather, Eastbrook capitalizes on academics because understanding this world (math, science, literature, languages, history, music, art, culture, etc.) points to the greatness of our Lord Jesus. Lessons make you marvel at God's handiwork and intelligent designs, whatever the subject matter. Teachers at all grade levels have high expectations but care deeply about their students and work with them on individual bases. If you want to be challenged, then Eastbrook is a great environment.

I've gone to Eastbrook for over 10 years and I love it!! It has challenged me both academically and spiritually. It's diverse atmosphere has prepared me to deal with people from a variety of spiritual, cultural, and racial backgrounds. The teachers are amazing! Each one works hard to make sure every student understands the material and pushes them to excell beyond their expectations! If you want your child to experience a quality classical education, in a diverse atmosphere, centered on Christ, then I highly recommend Eastbrook!


Posted June 1, 2013

I think others should know that this school is very strict. It also expects more of a student. If a student does one thing wrong like talk back to a teacher (I know it is bad but just the simplest things) and BAM right in the deans office. i think teachers treat kids poorly.


Posted June 5, 2012

My daughter just graduated from Eastbrook Academy and I am VERY proud of her and what she accomplished. I know that she is well prepared for college and is strong in her faith and what she believes. The small community is wonderful and encouraging, a very positive atmosphere for teens- with no drugs/alcohol or any serious problems. We love the diversity and the kids in her class all got along great even though they could not have been more different. I know this will help her in life.

I was in Eastbrook Academy's first high school graduating class in 2010, and it is a really strong school academically. I would encourage any parents who want their kids to be successful to send them to Eastbrook. Strong academics. Motivated students & dedicated teachers. Strong sense of community, and not really cliquey or anything. Diverse. No fights. No serious behavior problems. No tuition, if you qualify for the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program. The class sizes are small, so no students fall through the cracks. Like any school, though, EBA has its shortcomings--for better or for worse, the administrators don't believe in tracking, so transfer students are sometimes placed 1 or 2 grade levels below their age group. Also the faculty is quite strict, and they're serious about the evangelical Christian aspect of the school, so you may experience a little tension with faculty if your family's spirituality differs from Eastbrook's, and a few of the teachers think they can tell you how to live your life, which can be annoying. But if the worst thing you can say about a school is parts of it can be annoying, that probably means it's an excellent school.

I've been attending Eastbrook Academy for 4 years, and as for the curriculum, it's great! But the teachers are something else, the teachers talk to you like you're a stupid idiot, and they have condescending attitudes towards students. Some even act racist. The principals don't listen to your comments or concern, and if you do talk to them, they never do anything about your issue. I'll just be glad to leave.

Our sons have been enrolled at Eastbrook Academy from kindergarten through high school. At each juncture (middle school, high school), we compared other schools for academics, diversity, Biblical world view, extracurricular activities, tuition cost, class size, faculty and found Eastbrook Academy excelled in each area. The current senior class has one of the highest ACT averages (29.5) in the area. I give Eastbrook Academy the highest rating.

Eastbrook Academy offers a rigorous academic environment in a diverse and loving community. My kids have been here since the inception of the school in 1998. I'd definitely encourage you to check it out!

Eastbrook Academy is a great school that provides three essential elements to help me as a parent raise smart, confident, moral children. First, solid academics are taught well by gifted, nuturing teachers. Second, my children are given individual attention daily, their talents are recognized and encouraged, and their achievements are recognized and celebrated by their teachers and classmates. And finally, Eastbrook Academy uses prayer and Godly principals to direct decisions and disciplinary actions and integrates Christ naturally in curriculum and classroom activities. As a parent, I couldn't imagine a better, safer place for my child to be during the school day.

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.

GreatSchools Rating

For private schools, the GreatSchools academic rating is based on test scores and student growth measures from students participating in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program and is not necessarily reflective of performance for all students at a private school. GreatSchools is working with state education officials in the hopes of presenting a more comprehensive picture of student performance at private schools in the future. In the meantime, we encourage reaching out to private schools of interest about specific testing information.

What makes up this rating?

Academic rating
6 / 10
Climate rating
7 / 10

This school's GreatSchools Rating is based on academics (90%) and climate (10%). The academic rating measures students' test scores, academic growth and college readiness. The climate rating measures safety, cleanliness, parent involvement and more.

What is the new GreatSchools Rating?

Rating legend

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.

*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.
