The minute you walk in the door of Rolling Hills, it feels good. There is a safe and secure environment for learning; the d cor is bright and inviting, and every where you look, kids are engaged in learning. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about what they do. The enrichment activities and specials, like art, music and phy.ed produce incredible results. Communication is clear, frequent and informative. The principal is always visible and willing to engage wither with the kids, the teachers, or parents. I have been involved in education for almost 40 years; Rolling Hills is as good as it gets!

Rolling Hills is a excellent school. So far three of my four children have attended there. Great involved teachers as well as parents. Our children have excelled there. The teachers really care about their students.

If you are seeking a school in the area with an excellent IEP program (special ed.), this school is exemplary. My daughter has ADHD and ODD, and has been at Rolling Hills from K thru 3rd grade, and has been in the program there each year. The IEP teachers have very small classes, so they can focus alot of attention on each child. My daughter's academic, behavioral, and social skills have greatly improved due the program here. My son decided that he wanted to transfer to Rolling Hills, and now says he likes it there alot more. Section and Clarendon are older, smaller, not as satisfying as R.H. for a child, especially in IEP program.

We have been at Rolling Hills for four years, both of my children absolutely love it. The teachers are great, and the principal is awesome! The people are all nice. And everyone seems to want to help. My children do not want to ever be sick, they have had perfect attendance, since we started there.

I can't say enough good things about Rolling Hills. The one concern I had was addressed and solved immediately, my kids love their teachers, and the security of my kids are top priority. The educational environment is exceptional at Rolling Hills. The principal and the energetic teaching staff keeps the learning going while keeping smiles on everyone's faces. We are lucky to have our kids enrolled there.

We have been at R.H. since 2000 -- my son loves it, my daughter hated it! There's at least 1 less than desirable teacher in almost every grade, but the rest are absolutely excellent! Playground behavior is rather violent, with little or no consequences. My daughter has had several MAJOR injuries over the last 3 years at the hands of fighting boys. My major complaint is with the principal. If you have a concern, he does usually handle it right away, but may turn around and tell you something completely different 2 days later. If your child is a victim, you'll never even get a call.

I have to say that I love this school. The teachers are great and my daughter hates missing school if she ever needs to. We like the extra curricular activities and the family activities as well. Thanks for a great year Rolling Hills.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.
