I love going to school every morning, SIS is does not only have great teachers, but is just an overall wonderful environment. Overall it is not very cliquey, and offers different experiences for whatever you are into.

Shorewood has a diverse student population, caring teachers and great extra curricular activities- ideal for adolescents. Teachers are supportive and build responsibility in students.

Great language programs, strong art and music departments. The Middle School Track & Field team is one of the best. Great Location, good program offerings and student-teacher ratio.

I'm in eigth grade in SIS, and it's a great school, with plenty of extracurricular activities like jazz band, chamber orchestra, basketball, volleyball, and softball. We have a very high level of math and science, and amazing teachers who are willing to help with every problem, who try to answer every question. We have many out-of-school trips, like the trips to Puerto Rico (students taking Spanish), Quebec (students taking French), and the St. Louis Music Festival (students taking either orchestra, band, or choir). In all, it's an excellent school, and I couldn't hope for a better one.

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.
