Posted February 20, 2007

If your child needs to be treated as an individual and not as a whole class, this is not the school district for you. If your child is in the average or above average, you should be safe. In other words, if your child struggles in any area and needs extra help, you will be better off finding a different school district. I am praying that with the new principal, there will be changes for the good (he seems like the man to do it). I honestly have never been in a school district with teachers that communicate as little as the ones in this district. It does seem that any of the teachers that have joined the district in the past 3 or 4 years are doing well in this area.

I can only say that this school is in the median. After moving from another area, this school is no different from other districts. They have issues (communication w/parents, discipline issues and more). Their rates are lower in some areas, then other districts in the area. If you can move or do open enrollment, look around first. If you can t, your child should get by here just like any where else.

Omro Schools are wonderful! Great teachers and curriculum. I was a graduate from Omro High School and I currently have three children who attend this school.

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.
