Shell lake school is the worst school I have seen for bullying. I wish I could say its from students, but its not. There are faculty and a bus driver that I know of. I am hoping to relocate out of this district .If I was able to rate them less then one star I would.

Bullying in this school is being handles well from classroom teachers, the counselor, to the principal. The school is very serious about preventing bullying, so what others have said may not be the actual case.

I have twin boys that are in 1st grade this year 08-09. I have only had 1 teacher that I was not happy with in kindergarten but we are past that one. :) Other then that we are very happy with Shell Lake Schools. They are very family oriented and are great with communicating with me if there is a problem or if my children need to work on something. There is going to be bullying at any school, just more at certain ones. We have not had any problems yet, but i am sure someday we will.

Our two girls attend this elementary school. I love the teachers and and the staff. One child has a bully in her class, and the teacher backs me every step of the way, encourages parent participation if they can in the classroom, the other child has a wonderful teacher also. So caring and understanding of our recent move. They are all so encouraging to our girls, and keep in constant contact with us about academics, as well as their accomplishments. All the extra carriculars are avaliable for the girls. They partake in Wrestling, and the coach, and staff are wonderful on explaining everything, and treat them equal. They couldn't be happier attending this school, and neither could we. We await the time when our other 3 children will soon join the ranks of the Lakers!

the school is ok academically, but they leave a lot to be desired as far as preventing bullying. My child is told again and agin by the adults to ignore it, she's gone from a happy A student who loved to go to school, to completely hating it.

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.
