My school is just fabulous! the teachers are dedicated, kind, and well informed. The parents are supportive. The principal is VERY involved. The curriculum is challenging, yet engaging. It has a very comfortable environment.

We are a small school with great teachers! But beyond this fact, the school has been focused on community service. There is also a strong emphasis on student fitness

We have a great school w/ many Special Education programs. Tahe students get help not only from their teachers, but from parents and community as well.

My son attended Washington School. I was very disapointed. Instead of making progress, I watched as he regressed academically due to the lack of assistance his teacher and the principal. Fortunately, he no longer attends this school.

WSLC is an excellent, well rounded elementary school. The staff truly cares about the students and works hard to provide a quality education. The special needs services are among the best; offering mainstream inclusion, personal instruction, peer mentoring, and various therapies. My children love their school.

Wow, you obviously are confused. More than half of the learning is with regular education students. The principal is great with the special needs students and the services and special education instructors are amazing. My children are peer mentors for the special needs children and I amazed by the level of interaction and combined learning that occurs.

We recently moved to Stevens Point from out of state and although we are zoned for Jefferson, we were placed at Washington due to Jefferson being full. My son is in 1st grade and in just the two months he's learned more than in an entire semester at his old school. He also has so much more confidence. His teacher was also nice enough to send us notes home for the first few weeks to let us know how he was adjusting (he loves his new school btw). My only concern would be about class size, they seem a bit large.

Washington Service-Learning Center is an overall great school for children grades K-6. The principal is involved and honestly cares about the kids and the school. The teaching methods vary from teacher to teacher. Different kids learn best in different ways, and a variety of teaching styles can help each child make the most of their time at school. The school takes leaning seriously, but academics are not the only focus. They have music, art, sports, family activities, a strong PTO....it is all around good place to be. It is called a Service-Learning center because the curriculum ties in service related projects the benefit the school and community.

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.
