I've found that students at many public high schools in the mid-west are often called made fun of for performing well in class, but Sturgeon Bay High School provides a very positive learning environment where academic achievement is celebrated by your peers rather than mocked.

This school has a great principal and great teachers in the district. It deserves a higher rating.

The teachers at this school do not talk to parents on a regular basis to update them on their students progress.You have to ask over and over to have teachers help.I do not feel they give all students the equal amount of attention. Teachers have their favorite students and they get most of the attention. The activities in this school are very limited.

i am moving next year and i have to say that i am very sad to leave this school. Everyone accepted me here, and i feel so comfortable walking through the halls. my parents don't think this is the best school in the world, but I love it. I love how small it is and the pride that goes on here. everyone supports each other :)

I am currently a student at sbhs...And its an alright school. The teachers, for the most part, are very helpful. There is very low crime, although like any high school it still exists. I love the block scheduling (4 classes a day, 1 1/2 hrs each) and the fact that we have off-campus lunch for all grades, although lunch is only 35 minutes long. Our sports teams are great for the most part. Our boys swimming team has won state for 2 years in a row now and our boys basketball team is also quite strong. There is quite a bit of clipper pride. One downside, however,is that sometimes people form many cliques and aren't willing to get to know anybody outside of their group of friends.Also because of the small town atmosphere many students get away with things because of their family name. But overall, sbhs is an okay school.

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.
