Mrs. Holley -Young is such an excellent principal and works well families! The teachers are very caring and dedicated and we think this is the best school in the district!

Other than Mrs. Sobatka, who is a FANTASTIC teacher, I am beyond disappointed in their Special Education Department as well as their staff!

Everyone at school goes above and beyond what is called for. They do extra things that help the children improve on the skills they have. The students try very hard to do the right thing. They also have extra activities for the students a couple of times though out the month. If they have a problem they can be sure they will get the help that is needed.

The teachers and staff are cooperative and open to ideas by the parents. My child does nothing but praise her teachers.
—Submitted by a parent

The problem I have is my son needed class help due to physical issues that made learning difficult and I could not get him help at this school until he left and went to middle school. Now he is 3 years behind and is making huge leaps due to the help he is getting. Had they agreed to help him when I first saw the problem in 3rd grade we would not have gone this far behind. Very frustrating.

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.
