Wow! I am continually amazed by how wonderful the teachers and principal are at this school. Every teacher we have been exposed to has been highly qualified and clearly interested in teaching. The administration is responsive and provides good leadership. The school has excellent opportunities for above average students as well as those needing additional attention. For the most part parents are involved and supportive and the surrounding community is committed to providing an excellent education. I love this school!

Im Not happy with school at all when I need to argue and continually request an IEP for my child and they ignore my request and blow me off. I'm pulling my child from the school because they don't seem to take an interest in educating children when shes clearly failing basic concepts.

The staff at Evergreen do an excellent job of identifying specific needs of each child and addressing them appropriately. There are plenty of opportunities for children to work at their specific level, whether that be below- or above-grade level. The Principal and support staff know the children by name and offer excellent communication with parents.

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.
