Best School! Great kids, wonderful teachers. Definitely one of my favorites, and I have been to many schools in my short lifetime. Great academic program!


Posted September 15, 2009

They have a great staff that is willing to do anything to help students succeed.

Posted May 14, 2007

The school just received a significant facility upgrade by adding a new auditorium, field house, library (idea lab), and other needed improvements. It is a beautiful facility and many of the teachers are great. They also have several AP programs available, giving them a ranking as one of the best high schools in the country. The only problem is some of the district/board policies are causing strains on the availability of electives (including music).

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.
