This school is amazing. After being bullied at my other school in freshman year, I went to walden for my sophomore year and will be returning. Its calm and relaxing but an excellent learning environment! I've never been this excited to go to school. I recommend this school for everyone, especially those exceptionally smart students. Walden has plenty of advanced classes. Love Walden!!!

My daughter is going into her sophomre year. She has been attending since 6th grade. She loves school and can't wait to back in the fall. This school offers more freedom to the students but they have to be responsible with it. The teachers are wonderful and easy to talk to. Academics are very important here and valued. The school is smaller and more intimate and the teachers really get to know the students. Coferences are 4 times per year and very helpful. My daughter couldn't be dragged away from Walden.

Walden is a great school with great students. The teahchers are great and allow their students to think. I come home everyday telling my parents everything i learned at school today. I actually like going to school. The give us a fare amount of homework and we have fun learning. If i don't understand something they sit down with me and go through it step by step with me. They teach us responsibility here. I think every kid should want to go here.

Walden has been a delightful experience. My child has grown fond of school and has been looking forward to returning to the calm enviorment. The children are taught to build their own personalities and be themselves while expressing freely their emotions.

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.
