Sheboygan North High School is one of the best high schools in the country. The past decade, the Sheboygan Area School District has been ranked in the Top 10 in the country and the passion that North's faculty and staff take towards academic excellence is amazing.

I'm not a parent, I'm an alumni. I have seen several other high schools since joining the navy and being on the Navy Presentation Team. North High School is on the very top of my list of best high schools in the United States

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.

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.
