Terrible bullying from the girls, to the point where it wasn't safe anymore. A girl threw a drink on another girl with no consequences. Parents do not seem to even care about their children's behavior. I removed my daughter from the school so she was safe.

Posted January 22, 2008

I felt that while the teachers really seemd to care about their students and the quality of education they received, the administration, superintendent, school board members and the principal had other priorities in mind. I found them to be oppositional and a very sad group indeed. I have opted to homeschool my 2 children rather than send them to this school.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. 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.
