This school is phenomenal....my son transferred to this school after I experienced problems with another elementary school in the area...The Principal is supportive and always looks at different ways she can make a difference through implementing new programs that are beneficial to the children,...which I would have sent my son here two years sooner

The building itself could use some updating but the playground is awesome! The majority of the teachers and aides are exceptional. There are a few that are very fake. The principal could definitely be more friendly. She seems very friendly and outgoing to a few select parents but acts like she doesn't doesn't want to be bothered by the rest. I think this school would have a higher rating and community perception if the teachers and staff worked more closely with the parents instead of pushing them away. More community and family events are needed rather than constant fundraising.

My son has attended this school for several years. I have always really liked the staff. The teachers and aides are kind yet firm. It has a nice large playground too. There is a nice mix of both newer teachers as well as more experienced ones. The Principal seems nice, isn't overly friendly but haven't had much contact either.

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.
