Great school! Can't say enough positive things about the staff, atmosphere and quality education my kids receive.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 31, 2013

I hve two rown children who attended Kickapoo elemtery both of whom received a VERY good education. While some of the staff has changed many are still there. The facilities are well maintained and are exceptional for the size of school. Both children went on o attend the high school as well where they were able to participate in many extra-curculare activities. They also were able to take AP classes to hel then in collage placements

I currently have two children attending. They have both improved their skills since moving into the district. I think that some discipline and a little more attention to actual school work from the teachers would make this school great. I feel I am doing half of the work, and I have them for less time each day.

My child was a former students of Kickapoo Elementary School. The school is good for some people, but my children are all better off in a different public school. Some teachers are great while others were not. One child excelled and the other's regressed. We pulled our child out of Kickapoo Elementary School because the treatment of child by a Teacher, and the lack of school cooperation and we never retuned. I will add that the prior school year our child did have a very nice teacher (Mr. Lipski) who was a great with small children and he is worth mentioning.

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.
