I love Rib Lake Elementary School because of the family nights like Math Madness, Sledding night, and Family Reading night. I also love the way they encourage their students to help those around them like raising money for the victims in Haiti, struggling area families, and Acts of Kindness month.

I love the positive atmosphere that the principal encourages. I love that the kids are rewarded for acts of kindness. I love that relationship building tools and honorable characteristics are promoted in the school curriculum. My children feel safe here and I feel that they are safe. The system they have come up with to catch a child that is falling behind in an area and then give them the extra support that they need for however long it takes to get them back on track is phenomenal. It was not always this way. I feel welcome when I enter my childs school. Parents are encouraged to be involved and programs like D.A.R.E. are so beneficial for the children and their families. I would have benefited going to a school such as this one when I was a child.

I love RLES because the staff is awesome. They are the building blocks for our children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc., and all these children are our future. The patience and guidance these teachers offer is absolutely remarkable. It definitely takes a special person to be an elementary school teacher.

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.
