We think this school is one of the biggest jokes around! They do not focus on education in hardly any way, but rather "mini courses" such as water parks. They have weeks off of school just for the kids to return back to class for more "mini courses". Students who's grades are poor are not being given proper instruction. Communication between staff and parent is non-existent unless it involves them wanting money. The teachers not only allow but almost encourage students to be lazy with assignments and projects instead of requiring the work that needs to go into things. The school seems much more concerned with making it APPEAR that their students are getting the education and success they need so they can get more government funding, rather than actually giving the students the education and setting them up for success. We strongly feel this school is all about appearance rather than honesty and integrity when it comes to teaching our children. We have two other children who are of much younger age, one at Koenig Elementary (which IS a great school) and an infant. We WILL be moving out of this school district before our two younger ones are of LB Clarke age... guaranteed!

I think this school has made HUGE gains recently! If you don't believe me check out the Wisconsin Stats! The new improvements are going ot be wonderful for the students, a whole new "feel". I persosnally see this school going back on the list of the top schools in Wisconsin. I have also been a teacher in many other districts and I have never seen such a group of dedicated, truly concerned teachers.

I don't think this school distict is doing it's best to actually 'hel' the kids learn. I have 4 in middle school and unfortunately we are having issues w/one of them. Instead of helping her, they just want to ush her through. Tell me how a child that brings home d's & c's on a daily basis in math can end up w/a b+ average. They need to do the math. There are many other issues I have problems with in this school but they are too many to go into detail here. If there were a choice of schools, other than parochial, we would send our children to one of them.

Now a days I think schools (public) are not out to help the children as much as they make it look like they are. Inconsistent teachings, changing due dates on assignments, and changing assignments at last minute leaving kids very little time to finish all of a sudden. I have my youngest in public school, and ONLY because she has friends and likes it. Where they messed up my oldest child by not helping her when asked. This NCLB act is a joke because my child was left behind and it took a private school to help her, with less resources, but they are getting the job done.
