my daughter goes here and she loves it very much and it has great education

New facility opened in 2006. Physical layout allows for 'pod' to group each grade (K-6). This allows teachers to collaborate and puts students in the same grade together. Each pod has a common area with computers. All classrooms use 'smart board' technology - interactive for teachers and students. The physical layout also considers/reinforces safety through automatic alarms to lock down and segregate classrooms, pods, main hallways and the main entrance in the event of a 'code red' threat. Very active and engaged building staff including the principal, classroom teachers, specialty teachers, admin & volunteer staff, and custodians. Excellent library, gym, and playgrounds. It is a minor miracle a public school of this caliber was built by decisions from a school board that has a history divisive, combative, and inter-agenda driven local politics.

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.
