The teachers are great with the students and go way beyond their job to help each every student. The school offers greatc opportunities for the students to flourish & realize their strengths and where they can go in life. We have many students that are on the High honors Roll & Honor Roll which means the students are learning alot along with enjoying being there.

We are an extraordinary school. We have dedicated and creative teachers, an awesome school superintendent, our own garden, healthy lunches, green cleaning products, a school forest, involved parents and community volunteers, recycling, a view of Lake Superior... I am very thankful to have such a wonderful school for my children.

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.

Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
