Best school I have ever been too, I love Oconto and I hope to graduate for my best time as with my other family here
—Submitted by a student

The teachers are very dedicated and knowledgable, teaching many triton and AP classes. It is very easy to talk to any teacher with your concerns. Being a small school teachers get to know your student and bring out the best in them. We have a large involvement of parents in Booster Club which supports financially scholarships, academics and athletics. This is a great school to be a part of.

This school needs a more dedicated staff, willing to provide individuals with information that may have been harder to grasp for them.

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.

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.
