My children have attended several schools and this one is by far the best school they have gone to. They have excelled in every class. I'm so happy to have my children in this school district.

Kickapoo is a great, close knit school!! Class sizes are small so the kids get a lot of one-on -one time with teachers.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
