My son went to this school for pre-k until first grade. This school has had a severe bullying problem. They have had three new principals in the last three years, have fired teachers at this school for the students having inappropriate behavior, and the teachers are doing the best they can to control the behavior. This school lost good teachers and the no bullying policy was highly unenforced. Do NOT recommend at all.

I am a proud mom of two children that have gone to Knapp, my oldest is soon to be 15 and my youngest just graduated 5th grade at Knapp. The teachers that have taught my children have gone above and beyond teaching my children. Knapp offers so many different family nights,academic clubs,talent show, choir, ect..........My children have learned so much from the staff over the years at Knapp. The newest principle Gayle Titus is a godsend and should be rewarded for her efforts in keeping this neighborhood school on track. I personally will miss this school and all who have known my family we are grateful to Knapp Elementary.

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.
