Bay Lane middle school is not good in fairness some children don't have to do the same amount of work other kids have to do and they don't give a lot of children the attention they need if they need a little extra help because they are a little bit slower than the other children


Posted January 14, 2014

Bay Lane middle school does not give the children enough attention when they need it especially because some of the children are a bit slower than others and because they let some kids not do as much work as the rest

Never have I seen a school with such high turnover. It seems that each year, half of the staff leaves, and a new group of beginner teachers fill their space. There is a project I technology-driven program which is only available to a select group of students through a lottery. While I don't know if I am fully behind that program, those seem to be the only kids in the building that really get to use any technology. There is no consistency in the building, and all teachers take a very different approach. One of the teachers my son had last year refused to stay after school with him to help him get caught up. She was very unapproachable and rude about it when I asked. I really hope this building gets it figured out because something is wrong here.

Muskego education is absolutely terrible. I've taught at many schools and I love Muskego, but the education and attitudes of the teachers is unbelievable. I quit my job as a 5th garde teacher there due to a job offer at Arrowhead. The quality and attitude at my new school overcomes the muskego education by leaps and bounds.

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.
