We moved here after my husband got a job in this location, meaning our daughter needed to change schools. We absolutely love this school as does she. My daughter struggled with reading and with their help she achieved the reading level goal that was set for her. She excelled in math and was put into a more advanced class for that. If your children want to play sports, they have many great options. Not sure why it's such a low rating but we are extremely pleased with this school!

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 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.
