10! I just called to ask a question about my niece's Flat Stanley project and her teacher was accessible and actually answered the phone! She was very kind and we had a great conversation. I have visited Stormonth before and I know that both of my nieces love school and are getting a wonderful education here.

I'm very pleased with Stormonth Elementary, my son is in K4 this year and he has learned so much already, and he's very excited to go to school every day (even on weekends). I am very happy to know that he is learning and that this school has so many things to offer. Education is very important and this school is diong a great job academically. Not to mention the diversity, and allowing students to use their unique social skills as well as introducing them to 'No put Downs' teaching students to always be kind to others. Overall I'm greatly appreciated in having my child attend this school. -Thanks to Stormonth Staff-

I rate this school as excellent! My daughter is currently in the K4 program. Stormonth is a wonderful school with a friendly environment. They offer so many things to their students starting at K4, such as Spanish and Music. Considering that this is one of the best areas to live in the Milwaukee area and considered an 'upscale area', I feared that 'what class you are in' was going to be a problem. I didn't want my child to have the feeling of wanting to 'keep up'. It appears that education is put first before what class you are in. This is also a fairly diverse school and seems to encourage learning of other cultures. My daughter's class has about 4 different ethnicities in her class and it is a wonderful experience! I am so glad that my daughter has the priveledge of attending this school!

Posted January 31, 2007

Overall, Stormonth is a great school in the academic sense. However, I think there is sometimes too much emphasis placed on money and image. All students should be given the same treatment whether they live in the classiest neighborhoods of Fox Point or in the roughest neighborhoods of Milwaukee. Just because a child comes from a poor family does not mean that the child's parents are not capable of intelligent thought or that they are not seriously committed to their child's education!

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.

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.
