Since recieving a new principal, there has been positive changes within the school. I feel the school is leading to great things. I still feel though that there should be some security in the back of the school to protect those students that walk through the field.

This school is wonderful! I drive my child from Milwaukee to attend this great school. Keep up the good work - Wadewitz Adminstration, Teachers, and staff. I'm proud to say you are helping mold my children. - Jen Zimmerman

This school does not let the parent feel they have a control over thier children's education. For example, this school does offer Title 1 which is a reading tutoring program, but they will pull your child out of social studies or science for remedial reading. The principal does not take action and does not value the parents decision over what is best for thier child.

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.

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.
