Posted March 30, 2013

When I attended Horace Mann it taught 6-8 graders. That being said with the exception of the principle and vice principle it was a great school. I loved most of my teachers although there were a couple exceptions. Art was awesome and my art teachers there were some of my favorite teachers ever. One of them even drove me home one day when my mom forgot to pick me up. The principle was strict but not without reason. The vice principle on the other hand was horrible. She was mean and didn't bother taking the time to try and understand the kids who weren't your run of the mill Neenah preps and jocks.

All three of my children attended Horace Mann Middle School. The teachers teach with a team concept that is best for the children. They collaborate daily about any problems and address them accordingly in a positive manner. My children had a very successful experience.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
