Posted June 12, 2007

We moved to the neighborhood last February and were unsure as to what school we wanted our 6 year old to go to on the northside. We called and scheduled a tour of the school which was easily done. The principal guided us through a tour of the school. He was very nice and well informed when it came to any questions we had. We also had a chance to meet the Kindergartener teacher he has had this year. We were worried about the transition to a new school in the middle of the school year. His teacher and the principal made the move a very easy transition and he absolutely loves school and the teachers he has. We are very pleased we choose Cooper as the school for him.

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.

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.
