Stormonth Elementary goes beyond excelling in the basic educational curriculum. The forward thinking staff work to instill kindness, caring, mutual respect, and tolerance in all of our children. This is by far more than we had expected to achieve when we enrolled our daughter in this school and without question, we appreciate the collective efforts of Linda Moore and her top-notch staff.

My daughter is in K5 at Stormonth and so far we are very pleased with school, its teachers and administrators. I think the curriculum is well-suited for 5-6 year olds, and I especially like the special subjects they cover - art, music, library, spanish and physical education. The teachers and staff are excellent and seem very committed to making every child's experience at Stormonth a positive one. Finally, the administrative staff has the school running like a well-oiled machine! I've been very impressed overall. Great school!

Stormonth is a great school! It ranks with the education one would receive at a private school. My son attends the K4 evening session and loves it. The teachers and staff show great concern for the children. The student to teacher ratio is great. I love the school!

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.

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
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.

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.
