Horace Mann is a wonderful school because of all of the opportunities it gives the students to achive personal goals. The teachers always put in 110% towards helping the students. All of the staff make sure the students are preforming to their highest ability. It is a very safe environment with a caring atmosphere.

As a concerned parent, I really like this school, because of all the hard work the teachers put in, in helping students learn. It is also a parent friendly school, which makes it very nice to visibly see my son's progress.

Horace Mann offers many opportunities for our children to get involved in clubs, after-school activities and athletics. The teachers are really great to work with and available to answer my questions. I love the online access to my kids grades and homework.

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.
