If you are looking for a place to have your child conform to the mainstream ... this is it. A few of the teachers like to think outside the box but they are weeded out by the principal. it reminds me a little of that movie The Stepford Wives. frustrating. The parents are involved, but you better be a part of the clique if you want to be involved (or have a big enough diamond... either one will get you "in").

WE couldn't be happier with this sschool and its' principal, Mr. Rivard! Our son is flourishing and really loves school! The only thing that could be improved on is the language arts and communication from teachers to parents about things happening in the classroom. Other than that, we really love it and can't wait for our second son to start K5 in fall!

My family moved to Muskego in January/2006 from Greenfield, Wisconsin. My 9 year old daughter changed schools for the first time and ended up at Tess Corners. Her teacher, Mrs Maus-Torpy was God Sent! She quickly took away all butterflies from both my daughter and myself. My daughters grades were never better than 2nd semester. I was sad to move her to Bay Lane for middle school because of such a great experience with the Tess Corners staff. The music teacher comes to mind and is unbelieveable, patient and kind! The effort she puts into the music program is top notch! Thank you to everyone from the bottom of my heart!

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.
