The school of fox river may seem nice and kind but I'm from the inside. The school has very short lunches and a even shorter lunch time. The lunch ladies are mean and kick us out of lunch room on days were it is below 0. And stem everyone hates. But don't let me get started on career pathways. Well the school may think it helps question us truth is that class there Felid trip no one really liked. Plus their is this 7th grade math teacher who people want gone Not because she gives to much homework or is stressed she eats in front of us and stinks up the room with the worst tasting yougert. On the other hand the musical and art teacher are the only ones who we feels we can really talk to. I think if they want to know the truth about the staff the need to give the students are question sheet that is comply random so they can learn the truth. I gi ess what I am trying to say is if you want to send your kids here don't or they will not thank you. Worst school ever.

This school gets 6 stars as do the others in Waterford, hands down teachers care about the students as do the office people , friendly, understanding, caring and just all around very balanced to keep the enviorment very much under control, also since the county bailed out of specil ed. Woodfield and Fox River have weathered the transition extremly well, from Mrs Weiss to Mr. Fortman my hats off, keep on keepen on

I agree, This school is great. The teachers are really nice and its hard to fail because of so much one on one time. (:. Their pizza is good but the other lunch is really gross.

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.
