I taught at this school for 10 weeks as a long-term sub. It s a great school because of its strong administrative team and the collaborative nature of the teaching staff. Principal Pete Schulz runs a tight ship, and he clearly communicates his expectations to the students. He and the two deans command respect from the entire student body because of their no-nonsense attitude toward discipline problems. In addition, the administrative team has worked hard to properly use intervention time. No matter where each student is academically, the staff pushes students up to the next level by providing appropriate, challenging enrichment activities. The eighth grade teaching team is a very supportive environment to work in. The eighth grade staff holds regular meetings, and the administration gives each team of teachers the power and the authority to function as an individual unit. New London itself is a somewhat small, tight-knit community, and this school mirrors the community that it serves. Students (for the most part) are proud of the school that they attend, they display school spirit, and they respect the building by keeping it clean. --- Tim Weldzius

I attended a 7th grade boys basketball tournament and the parents were extremely rude. They were laughing at our team and stomping their feet and just showed horrible sportsmanship. I was extremely disappointed in New London fans!! Not a good experience for the opposing team.

Bullying is a big problem in the School District. My brother has been bullied in school for years and the Administration has never done anything about it. It's been non-stop harrassment from day 1. Don't expect teachers to intervene, because they don't. My family has been forced to move out of state and put my brother in another school because it has gotten so bad.

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.
