I am a parent of 2 students and both my husband and I are graduates of the school. St. Catherine's is an investment in your child and worth every cent. The teachers know your child and tries to get to know the parents. Whereever possible they work together to provide the best situation for the child.

My daughter attendes St. Cats. and it is a great school. I love that there are only about 400 students verses 2000 at the public H.S. in Racine.When I call and say this Lyssa's mom they know who I am and who she is. Her 1st year algebra teacher Mr. Berry worked with her and other students in such a fun and relaxing way during and even after school that my daughter who hated math is now taking trig with Mr.B.Another reason I continue to send Lyssa is that the one day I forgot to call her in sick, I recieved a call to my house, work and finally my cell# by 8:30am asking why she wasnt in class at 7:04. I remember cathing the automated system that called our house when I went to public H.S. I am so glad they are watching out for her.My son starts next year.

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.
