I have 2 children in the SCF school district since Kindergarten. Both have done very well and we are very happy with the majority of the teachers and the amount of one on one time that the children receive. As with any school, there are faculty and staff that I do not always see eye to eye with, but the majority of our contact with the school has been good. I am proud of the things they are able to accomplish with such an anti-education state legislature. I would recommend them.

My son has been in the St Croix Falls Elementary School for 3rd and 4th grade and while he has had some good teachers the administrative staff have been very difficult to deal with. When a concern or issue is brought to their attention it has been dismissed without much care. Their attitude has been very unprofessional and rude. In one instance early on we brought an issue with one of the faculty to those in charge and his response was that he doesn't get involved that type of stuff. We have been disappointed in this school and it has been hard on my kids.

My child has been in SCF Elementary since Kindergarten. The class sizes have been nice and small and the teacher/parent communication is wonderful. I am very happy with the quality of teachers and aides who help my child with everything from math to social skills. My only concern is that the teachers are forced to teach for the tests which is no fault of their own or the schools. I wish there were more time for Art and Music and History. SCF does as well as they can be expected in these areas given the time they have available after all the math reading tests. I commend them. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

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.
