Great teachers!! Good involvement, modern instructional methods plus it is an IB authorized school. It's a diamond in the RUSD system.

School has some great points but area that can be approved on. My child like and A grades but vastly different education then previous exposed. Maybe I will rate a five when I stop seeing security guards keeping kids away fence in the playground due to the neighborhood.

Excellent school! My daughter is in the 1st grade and she is very happy here. There is quite a bit of homework and parent involvement and that is what makes this school so good. We show through our involvement that school is important. Her teacher is awesome!

The school is the best one in the RUSD District. Parents, teachers, and students drive the success that happens at this school.

Three of my four children attend Jefferson Lighthouse. It is a wonderful school with caring and helpful teachers and staff, as well as great extra curricular activities that kids and parents alike can enjoy! Academically, this school goes above and beyond what is asked of them by state standards, and it shows in my child's test scores and homework reports. I would recommend this school to anyone and am proud to say that my children receive their education at Jefferson Lighthouse. Leah Haling

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.
