I have two boys, one who is 13 and has gone on to the middle school and one who is 91/2 and is currently in Woodside Elementary School. My older son spent K5 - 5th grade at Woodside, as well. I couldn't tell you about enough of the great things that are going on at Woodside to express to you how much I love the fact that I am fortunate enough to send (or have sent) my boys to this school!!! My children have always felt welcomed, loved and accepted in each and every classroom they have been in. The teachers and the staff treat all of the children attending woodside as if they were their own children...and the wonderful men and women that work their day after day really and truly LOVE their jobs and the children that they work with. I love Woodside!

We have two daughters (k-5 and 1st grade). All the teachers my daughters have had at Woodside are just awesome. They are always trying to keep all the students comfortable by given them special attention in case one of them falls behind. I feel that every single staff there cares for my girls, it is like a big family and the summer school offered are the best!!!!!

My daughter is in 4th grade and we have yet to meet a teacher who is not totally committed to her students. We love the culture at the school and the first-rate facilities.

The lack of compassion toward students is enormous in this school. When issues arise many times the principal does not investigate completed. Blame is given to the child too often and there are teachers with major problems in this school. I would never again send my child to this school given what we have experienced.

The principal is outstanding. My daughter, who is in first grade, has had a very positive experience so far.

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.
