I really liked this school and my kids still miss it! Unfortunately, lack of communication and bullying became a huge issue! They used to have so many great teachers!

First of all, the teachers are amazing. They do not get enough credit in my opinion. My son started here in K5 and is currently in 6th grade. I also have another child who is in her fourth year here. Both of my kids have a great attitude towards school and they have nothing but great things to say about their teachers. Each one has left a positive impression on them. The downfall of this school is their administration. They lack attention, organization and compassion. We love the teachers and loathe interacting with any other part of the school. After 7 years we are currently exploring other options for next year.

My daughter has been attending this school since kindergarden and our family is very pleased with the educational program the school is offering. Each year the school improves and I highly recommend this school to everyone. She is so pleased with her teachers and eager to learn.

My child attended this school from the day it opened to the day she graduated 8th grade. It houses some of the finest educators I have ever experienced, and I have 3 other children in different schools. Over the years there have been many frustrations with administration and school board, but daily education and experience was excellent. She is currently ranked 9 of 247 after completing her freshmen year, not much to compain about educationally, and code of conduct has carried over.

This school is horrible! I would not recommend it to anyone and my child has gone there for 5 years and I will be pulling him out next year. They do not want any parent involvement and the administration does not care. Forget about going to the board for any concerns they will brush you off also! Do not send your child there and the education is far behind from unified.

My child recently transferred to 21st Century from Racine Unified and guess what, I'm thankful for it! I've watched my child transfer from a kid who did not like attending school; to one who enjoys the idea of going to school. Therefore, as a parent, I am very pleased with the learning enviroment that they've foster.

My children have attended for 3 years and it is declining every year. Administration does not thoroughly think decisions through and ultimately end up creating more problems. For a school that claims parental involvement is important, I feel very disconnected. I am only aware of changes until they have already happened, never having any prior notice and parent suggestions are never welcomed. As I have tried to contact the administrators several times only to be brushed off and most of the time my phone calls are never returned or e-mails are not answered. My students are excellent students and I am reasonable in my requests however, they are too busy to take time out to address parents' needs. I plan on pulling my children out next year. What a waste of a great concept, mission, and resources. With a more passionate staff who values relationships this school could be great.

Parent of students going to what I hoped was a promising preparatory school for Racine. However, the school is riddled with administration/staff retention problems and child discipline issues. Lack of follow through with new programs and decline in parent involvement largely do to loss and frustration of many 'good' students/families. I wish them luck as open enrollment will direct us hopefully down another path in fall of '07.

Our oldest son is a 1st grader at 21st Century. He transferred from RUSD halfway through his K year. We were particularly impressed by the school s diversity, the level of parent involvement, the commitment of the teaching staff and the dedication of the school administration. It immediately became apparent to us that our son was well behind the other students at 21st Century because of the school s aggressive curriculum and strong commitment to learning. Today, however, he is in the highest reading and math classes due in large part to the dedication of his Kindergarten teacher, who after working from 8-4 each day still took an additional hour out of her evening to provide one-on-one instruction to our son. This level of commitment and dedication is far too rare in our society today, yet quite representative of the 21st Century School.

My child has been attending 21st Century Preparatory School for 3 years. The first year was awful; they suspended a 1st year student who was only 5 at the time for taken someone's treat, the teachers do not work with the children, nor do they challenge the students. In the second grade they are learning about household uses of water.....my child is bored and therefore gets herself into trouble. Instead of the teachers, who have years of education under their belts, recognizing that she is bored send her to the office, send home 'naughty notes' and will point out in front of the other students how naughty she is. What they should be doing is talking to her- challenging her mind.

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.

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.

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.
