I had to send my son here because he has pervasive developmental disorder. When I sent him I thought everything was set. Until yesterday I received a letter saying I owed money to the school! He is on free lunch as well as on badgercare. Even without that why is a school charging fees? Not only that but they send homework home for a kindergartner which is silly. Parents just end up doing it themselves! How do you expect a five year old, especially one with PDD and ADHD, to sit and do homework?

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.
