I absolutely love LaGrange. Teachers are very nice and keep parents well informed. School encourages family involvement and volunteering. Lacks diversity but is about the most diverse you can get compared to other schools in the area.

LaGrange Elementary appears to be a great school. However, I have several friends besides myself that have a problem with the school's lack of awareness for cultural differences. Every child is not the same, not does every child come from the rural town of Tomah. There are several military children that attend this school(federal funding extra) that didnt present problems before going to LaGrange, yet now have several behavior problems. Beware. If you have a child that attends or will attend be sure to visit the school frequently and be an advocate for your child.

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.
