We sent our son with autism there for summer school in June 2014. On the first day of summer school, they lost him. He was outside wandering for 2 and a half hours!!!!!!!!!! The first teacher assured my husband she had his IEP and was aware of his needs. She never bothered to make sure he got to the second class. He never showed up to the second class, and the office never called us to notify us of his absence, which is a policy. If your child has special needs and goes here, good luck......

This school has fairly decent teachers. Ive noticed a multitude of teachers giving up on their classes, rolling their eyes at slower learning students, and a general lack of care in what they are teaching. Although i have had one or two spectacular teachers, who take things slowly but not too slow, make sure their students are prepared for tests and quizzes and show respect to students. i do have a problem with this schools choice in forgien language teachers, one teacher was only recognized as fluent in english one week before they began teaching! The students at East are rude, disrespectful, inconsiderste, and older grades run through the halls and bulldoze younger students over. What do teachers do about that? ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING!!!!! if you are a parent thinking about moving your child to oak creek I HIGHLY recommend you do not

The principal is very unprofessional. As of the 2013-2014 school year, this will be her second year as the principal. Because of her new found authority, she thinks she should be put up on a pedestal and that she's better than everyone else, especially the parents. Only once was she nice to me, and she was also the assistant principal before she was promoted to the position of principal. As far as the teachers and staff go, there's a 75:25 chance of getting a great teacher and a decent/poor one. Great teacher meaning their teaching methods work, they get work done while making the class enjoyable, students are getting good grades, they communicate with the students and make conversation, and help students when needed. If the students like the class and like the teacher, they will try harder. Poor teachers make mountains out of mole hills. They give out detentions easily and kick students out of class frequently. If a student gets a lower grade, they won't offer help. They put down students and complain a lot about how students do this and that and how they don't do this and that. They talk more than they teach, and don't get work done. I wish i wouldn't have gone to this school.

administration at this school is horrible!!! No support for students or parents either for that matter. Would not recommend this school for anyone!!

This school is awesome. For the parent that said that they dont help the children with special needs that is absolutly wrong they have teachers that help with them every single day. And they dont give out Disorderly Conduct Tickets. That might be the teacher but not the school. I love almost every single teacher. They make learning very interesting and fun.

It's a amazing school There are great teachers and everybody is nice Parent below Me: Nobody gives out disorderly contact tickets.
—Submitted by a student


Posted March 1, 2009

Not very supportive, Administrator's no in tune with reality. Example...... Disorderly Conduct Tickets to students? Not for fighting....for lack of following direction, not safety related, not because of disturbing a learning environment. What is this world coming to?

Do not place your child in school if he/she has special needs. Lack of support/very traumatic experience.

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.
