I can not say enough about this school and the staff. The staff is highly in tune to the kids and their needs. Both of my children required some special ed stuff and the teachers along with the paras are great about helping when they need help, letting them do things on their own, and preparing them for what's to come. The grade level teachers are able to recognize when the kids need extra help and are devoted to making sure that the kids get it! I can not say enough about the staff. What impresses me the most is that the retiring principal knows every child's name and makes it a point to know the parents' names and even grandparent's names. If we can at all help it, our children will stay in the St. Croix Central School district through their schooling careers.

My child requires special education, and their special education staff is tremendous. The teacher and para-educators treat the children with respect, and give them as much independence that they can handle. Their education plans are well thought out. Mrs G is truly dedicated to her work and loves educating children.

Having had 5 children, and dealing with both public and private schools, this school wins hands-down. Not only is the principal involved, he is very active, the teachers I have met there LOVE their jobs, and they truly care about our children. I am so sad that next year middle-school will start, but I am confident that any issues that we could possibly have, will be dealt with immediately. They do NOT tolerate bullying, and I have never seen a bunch of greater kids who love going to their school! I would highly recommend this school, as my daughter goes there now, the teachers take their time with our kids, and the parents re involved. I wish all schools were run this well. Oh! And even their lunches are healthier than the 'norm'.

This school is great if your child is an 'average' student. But if your child excels or has some difficulties, check out the local parochial schools.

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.
