The quality of teaching at Case is EXCELLENT. We moved here from out of state last year where we spent several years in a top notch school district....the teachers compare favorably.The issue and challenge is the enviornment in which they must teach. The teachers challenge there is that they must teach an econiomically diverse group of teens. Some parents are involved, some are not and that certianly affects the quality of education the child receives. I would also wish that the discipline be more strict and immediate. There is too much tolerance of disrespectful behaviour because the rules allow for it.

teachers are very rude, and their is alot of disrespect. Their is racial issues at this school, between the teachers and students. I'm glad to be leaving this school, and hopefully it will get better. Most freshman feel very intimidated, and middle schools around racine definatly do not prepare us to be ready for high school.

Case overall is an OK school. Some teachers are rude and have no good intentions of being with students and other teachers are good,nice, and friendly,and others are unorganized and friendly which is weird. The security there is weird, because if they see a fight they wait a minute and then go and seperate them. Thats what they are being payed for to be securities. If the student hangs out with the right students then they will be ok.

I understand that some students do need to be pushed, but they must also push themselves. Teachers address this issue at the beginning of the year saying that they will not track you down if you are missing an assignment. They are preparing us for what college will be like. I am positive that is what all parents would love: to have a son or daughter ready to make the next step in their lives, at college. And yes, there is fights and students roaming halls, but find a public school, or any school, that does not have one student skip throughout an entire school day. Administrators are obviously trying to prevent this from happening at Case, as in other schools, but ultimately, it's the students choice. The staff at Case cares about the students and attempts to help all students, now it's the students job to accept the help.

My son is a 10th grader at CHS and has had declining grades since starting this year. I know he is easily capable of getting a's and b's if he is pushed. The core subject teachers that my son has are good teachers, but they do not ride him to turn things in or alert me if he is behind. Kids who are naturally responsible and turn in assigments properly are fine, but kids who do not are failing. A teacher should be able to see that if a student is not good at being responsible, they need to help them as well as alert parents right away. Grades are reflective of how much a teacher wants to invest in a student, both in and out of the classroom. Unfortunately, some of the teachers I deal with are not investing much. Hopefully that changes in the second semester.

I substitute teach in all the Racine high schools. Case is on the right track. If a student wants to get an education, he/she certainly can do it on several levels. A student has control over his/her educational destiny. Positive effort is all that is needed. There are many excellent dedicated teachers, counselors, and administrators at Case. There is an excellent International Baccalaureate program. Besides being a substitute teacher in this school, I have three children who graduated from Case. They are all outstanding citizens who contribute positively to society.

Being raised under the assumption that I would graduate from Case I wanted so badly to be an 'Eagle' since I was in middle school.Well I was an Eagle for 1 year and I'd like to say I'm glad my family moved to the country away from all the gang bangers, drug dealers, and other ridiculousness of that school. I nearly failed freshman year because I didndt care and neither did the teachers now I'm a Sparta Spartan Senior with all A's. I wish I had never gone to Case!

Under new leadership effective fall of 2008, Case is a different school. I teach at-risk students at Case and have taught in four districts in two states over the last 33 years. Turning a school around is like the proverbial 'turning the Titanic'. There is a new captain with firm hands on the helm. A good school is getting better!

Case High School is the worst high school in Racine. There are fights daily, students roam the hallways, and there is absolutely no attempt to bring things under control by the administrators. Teachers are basically helpless at Case. I'm a sub, so I feel well qualified to compare this school to Horlick and Park, which do a better job. I would rather move than have my children go to Case.

Case High School is more of a headache than a learning environment. Discipline is laughable, if not non-existent
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 1, 2006

Case is overall a good school. Most teachers really care about the students and compared to other local schools, Case keeps up with all of them in quality of learning and other areas. Case does have its problems, but the administrator is trying to address them.

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.
