Great school and community! Students are challenged with the many AP and honors classes that are offered. Teachers build relationships and are there for added help. No surprise test scores are one of the best in the state. Athletic and extra curricular programs are second to none. Building a huge indoor practice facility and weight room to go along with the beautiful fine arts center already in place. My kids loved their teachers and had a great experience not only in high school, but the middle and elementary schools!

I can not believe this school is rated so high! The teachers do not work with the parents in holding the students responsible for their work. They allow assignment to be turned in MONTHS after they are due for full credit. They will also manipulate grade books by not weighing assignments and/or tests so students will pass. We have asked the teachers to hold our kids accountable and fail them for not doing the work. Instead, my kids were just pushed through to the next grade. If you just want your child to get a diploma and don't care if they actually receive and education, this is the school for you!

This school has really developed over the years, with the city. New additions & improvements have made the school great, and the education programs are top notch. Great school.

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.

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.
