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.

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.
