This school was incredible. We moved out of town and still applied to have him stay at this school. Their no tolerance of bullying or threats or graffiti or anything is amazing. My son loved this school. And if we didn't have to move again I would have been more than happy to have our kids grow up going to this school. The teachers my son had were caring, and attentive to EVERYONE. So much so that when I saw the other review on this page I had to post one. We have had nothing but good experiences with the school and HIGHLY recommend it.

I hated this school. The teachers there are only concerned with the "naughty" kids, and they pay no attention to the kids who want to learn. If you don't play sports, you are not welcome there. --Submitted by a former student

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.

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.
