Not too satisfied with this school system what so ever. My son comes home with 2-4 homework a day and he's only in kindergarten. This is ridiculous. He comes home every day and tells me how much he hates school. Really? He's in kindergarten. He use to come home with art work or pictures thats hes drawn.. Now that he's in a new school he hardly comes home with any art work but work sheets after work sheets. I'm sure this isn't the only school. But don't get me started with the teacher. Lets just say the first 5 minutes of meeting her I was not impressed. She's was very rude.

My son is in the Integrated Kindergarten program this year (2008) and we're both very happy with it. The staff goes above and beyond for us, and there is always someone there to address any problems or concerns I may have. We love the diversity in the school and how many different cultures are embraced and taught.

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.
