Posted June 14, 2013

My children went to this school last year and had nothing but problems. We moved here from the other side of the state and were the 'outsiders' so my children were blamed for multiple unsubstantiated claims of them being bullies when the opposite was true. My son has adhd and pediatric bipolar syndrome and the school was well informed of this before the year started. They didn't want to deal with him. The solution to every and any minor issue was send him home. I was also regularly accosted by the special education teacher when I told her many many times when I was there I was in a hurry unless an appointment had been made. She didn't care, she still would not let me leave, standing in the doorways and blocking my way out of the school to complain how horrible my son was. If we were going to continue in the Mount Horeb community and district my children would be home schooled from this point on between paying ridiculous registration and field trip costs at the start of the year as well as through the year, the bullies both child and adult on the bus system and the faculty being very good at harassing parents but not teaching a child.

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.
