Lake Denoon is a superior school when it comes to incorporating technology in the classroom and home. They have transferred over all the communication to electronic notification. You can get the information immediately. The teachers are young and energetic. The facility is practically brand new. It has so much to offer to the students. The students that attend have a multitude of opportunities to explore the arts, sports and many other activities. I would highly recommend this school.

A safe place for my granddaughter to attend school. It is a well kept school and the teachers work hard to educate the children. In this day an age you send your child off not knowing what they will encounter in the next few hours. I trust L ake Denoon administration

I was in the first year 6th grade class on opening year, and went through 8th , and think this school was a great place to be. The teachers and staff were always there to help and after seeing it years after it still looks very nice and a place you want to be!

They demand respect and create an atmosphere where all can be successful. The only thing I would change is offer 5th graders band and more extra activities. I do not like gym. Not all students are capable of meeting the WI standards.

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.
