Although the school is improving a little on disciplinary consequences lately, there have been little or no consequences for students skipping school, being disrespectful toward teachers, not doing homework, failing classes, being unprepared for class, bullying, swearing, etc. The administration takes little action and leaves the teachers to deal with it on their own. It results in major discipline problems that my children think are 'normal' now unfortunately. The curriculum is hardly challenging and teachers tend to teach to the more lower skilled, unmotivated population, since that is the majority.

As a parent of a kindergartner, I was deeply disturbed by the way the school was. Kids would regualarly walk away from classrooms without teacher supervision after concerts or mid-school day events. My sons teacher gave me excuses why he didn't finish his work. We took him out of the school and his grades improved drastically.

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.
