My son transferred from Shepard Hills in Kindergarten and we moved to Cedar Hills area. He loves it. The teachers are wonderful, The principal is friendly and great. Love the schools up in Oak Creek.

We were transfered to Cedar Hills becasue of a re-districting when my daughter was entering the 1st grade. She had such a wonderful Kindergarten experience that we were afraid to move her. The principal, guidance councelor and teacher that my daughter was assigned to did a wonderful job of helping her fit in and find her place as 'the new kid'. She's doing well because the whole school works so well together.

My family really enjoys this school. As a parent, I am quite involved in school functions and enjoy this smaller school. It's easier to get to know the families and staff. My oldest child has been there for two years and both of his teachers worked great with him. Wonderful communication.

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.

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.
