Dear River Ridge High School, In trying to offer my service to talk with graduating seniors I was told my services were not needed. Talking to another former older Alumni it was suggested not to bother. The reason being they don't recognize Bloomington or West Grant graduates. If not giving back to a school would not be important, why pretend to be a school in the first place. I don't feel I'm all that self important but there are many alumni that are. If River Ridge can't glean something from their alumni base, there is something wrong. I would think twice before hiring a Principal and Superintendent who would turn down gifts, scholarship money from alumni and friends to help the poor unfortunate student get a higher education. I will support Boscobel and Fennimore schools instead. At least they appreciate their alumni base.

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.
