One of the reasons it is excellent is because it is diverse (re: March 11th post 'It's definitely a diverse school but it's wonderful...), the way this review is stated makes it sound like eventhough it's 'diverse,' it's still wonderful, as though being diverse is a negative thing!! It's what makes the school so great!!!

Hoover School has provided a great learning environment for my children. With lots of teacher communication, teamwork and parent involvement it provides a strong sense of community. My son has special needs, and so I have researched these issues and how neighboring schools handle special needs. Hoover is off the charts in this area.

We absolutely LOVE Hoover! The principal is so kind and is a friend and leader to all the students. The teachers are great and really know how to keep in touch with parents regarding ANY issues- good, bad or indifferent. Our kids have done great and they and we have made some great friendships. It's definitely a diverse school but it's wonderful and have never been happier :-)

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.
