My child was a transfer to this school and they have been amazingly welcoming and very approachable. They seem to have the student's best interest in mind and seem to do everything to make sure students have the tools and support to succeed. I am very happy with this school.

I've never seen Teacher's more decaded, and their volunteer's, (3 full time) are wonderful with and for the children. They really care about the children.

My family is new to Pleasant Prairie this year and I could not be more pleased with the change. The teachers are extraordinary! I'm always greeted with a smile. My children are happy and feel successful. The curriculum seems more challenging than the previous school, however we have received much support.

Things have changed a lot since this review was submitted in Oct. 2005, a new principle and office staff has been installed and they are very pleasant and helpful. some teachers have retired and been replaced. all love their jobs and love the children. As a volunteer I only find fault with the parents who are not doing their jobs, by working with Kindergarden kids I can plainly see which parents help their children, and Mrs. Kornder, Mrs. Glazebrook and Mrs Sherrick and some new teachers are doing a wonderful, sincere and conscientious jobs teaching these tiny tots whose parents don't have time for them or can't speak English. besides teaching they must also tie shoes, button buttons, 'etc.' It's a pleasure to work and give help to them. More parents should volunteer and see what the teachers go through.

I would like the children to be in a caring and loving environment and somewhere that is approachable to parents, which I do not feel this school is. The teachers actually might be okay, but they are under a whole cloud created by the office staff that doesn't allow for them to grow or shine in their potential.

This will be my son's 5th year at Pleasant Prairie Elementary school. He has had wonderful teachers.I could not have asked for a better kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Kornder was a great teacher. My son loved going to school everyday.He still does. Mrs Schulz for 2nd grade was also a great teacher. Mrs. Robertson the music teacher has inspired my son to play two musical intruments. It's nice to be at a place where the teachers enjoy being there.

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.
