It is a small school with great teachers who lover what they do,a nd love the children.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 23, 2004

I think the people at the school care, but the support staff needs to work better with the parents. There is currently little or no help for students falling behind in Math at this facility. The school district has told me personally that my child should try and reapply for help again in a few years. They supposedly don't have any data to compare her to anyone else in first grade. I find this absurd, we have had public schools for 400 years in this country, and they have zero data.

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.
