Seymour High School does a great job of providing a high quality education for all students. My kids have been able to pursue their dreams and have enjoyed all that high school has to offer! They expect to go to college and have great careers! The teachers are TREMENDOUS!

The Seymour Community School District is making huge changes and taking active roles to better all the students in the district. The teachers and staff are doing many new and innovative things to make the community better as a whole. Given the political climate of the time, it is important for people to really think about all the great things the district is doing in the midst of the lack of funding. People don't want to pay higher taxes but still want the school to be perfect and have the greatest opportunities ever. For the school to get better, the community needs to be more helpful.

This school has expanded the curriculum and educational opportunities recently. This has helped me to complete many general education courses for college during my years in high school. They have made a huge effort to take in student opinions and improvements. There are still pregnancy and behavioral problems, but they are being worked on.

The school over spends on buildings to try to get people to live here and go to school here. it has let to very high taxes in this city. I would suggest living somewhere else.

The school should be assisting all students, (with which they do a great job.) Just because someone is a minority, doesn't mean the school should give that student 'special' treatment over the other students.

The seymour school district is making no serious attempts in assisting minority students develop to their full potentail educationally. Not only is it evident in grades and performance but is also easily observed in the comparison of the standardised test scores.

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.
