WEBSTER STANLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL OUTSTANDING IN CARE AND EDUCATION, GOOD REGULATED SCHOOL, OUTSTANDING TEACHERS AND SUPERB PRINCIPAL LEADERSHIP


Posted October 12, 2013

With a new generation of students and families, education and parent involvement are improving. A newly organized PTO, a new Student Council, new principle, and newly elected Oshkosh School Board members are all working hard for renovations of areas of the establishment to provide for a safer student experience, and a push toward better curriculum in math and reading. Higher state test scores are expected and parent satisfaction is expected to rise as well. Clearly the new top public middle school in Oshkosh, WI.


Posted April 27, 2013

For the fairly low level of resources available and the high rate of poverty at Webster Stanley, the resultts are pretty good. The teachers in this school work very hard for the students. Regrettably, inadequate funding is beginning to take its toll at the school with uncompetitive new teacher pay resulting in higher turnover.

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.
