As a former student of PHS, I look back and very much value my experience. I was given every opportunity to learn in various forms (math, science, technology, woods, etc.). Further, PHS has the leading music dept in the area, if not the state. Approximately 20% of the student body participates in band. I believe the last stat on sports was an 80% enrollment. I couldn't ask for a better experience and am very much considering moving back to the area for the sole purpose of my children being able to grow up in the community and school. The school recently initiated a technology program, such that every student will be loaned a netbook for the academic year. The school also just built a new pool, new track, and ropes course. Plymouth is on the upswing.

I believe there is a wide choice of subjects for our children to take, as well as competent teachers to direct their learning. Plymouth has a wide support for all sports and the music department.

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.

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.
