This is a great school, with excellent staff members who concern themselves with the wellbeing of everyone, their primary focus of course, being the pupils. The staff exceeds my expectations regarding their genuine passion for seeing each and every student succeed. The attitudes students have toward school and learning in general, determines their academic outcome, whether it is positive or negative, it is ultimately their choice. If students apply themselves, under the support system of staff, they will be an asset in todays' society.

we have a great school, a great student body with great participation in sports, art, history, science, auto, and other extra curr. however the Speical ed dept is a very negitive, and minimum services are provided. Assisted tech is not there even when recommendations are made for them. Students are to 'try harder' and blamed for their inabilities. Self esteem goes down in that department. Its a wonderful great little country school except for that.

I've spent this year attending many awards ceremonies for the extra-curriculars and co-curriculars. The one thing that has impressed me is HOW MANY of the entire student body has participated in the play, musical, bands, choruses, art programs, math team, forensics, etc. as well as sports. All of the students really encourage each other. After a few years without a business program, RLHS is bringing it back. RLHS offers 2 foreign languages,many tech-ed classes that aren't found in other schools on a continual basis, has added more AP classes, yet still has the help for the students that need it. In both band and choruses the students are encouraged to find their musical outlet. If anything needs more improvement it would parental involvement. With more of that, every student will realize and achieve their goals. Come and check out this school, it's a great place!

Random Lake High School is a terrific school for students of all abilities, from Gifted and Talented to Special Eduaction. Vocational and tech. ed, art, band, music, science and math classes are plentiful to give students a well-rounded academic background. Classes that are not available in the classroom are available via distance learning. The students are not 'categorized' by their peers since many of the athletes are also in band and or music or shop, etc. The teachers and staff are very concerned for all of their students and are willing to go the extra mile to help any student. If you want a great school in a great community check out RLHS.

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.
