My child loves Summit View. They have grown to be more Arts focused which she enjoys. This year she has been involved in drama lessons, experiences live musical performances at lunch; we've also seen emphasized learning about famous artists, musicians and historical figures. They encourage individualized learning - she can advance through reading at higher levels and work on subjects of choice during free time. Exceptional 1st grade teacher. Focused on positive choice making and continued learning/demonstrated development. PTO is ok, school offers a wellness team that encourages healthy living for kids, we like that.

This is a good school if your child does not need extra help to succeed. I am a very involved parent and do not expect the school to do it all, yet I basically was told when I requested the school to evaluate my son (via IDEA, IEP, 501 plan) that unless he is FAILING no additional help will be provided. So with that said ... be prepared that unless your child is FAILING, do not expect this school's administration to provide your child extra assistance. No, they would rather your child FAIL first (thus plummeting their self esteem and of course once that happens, it is that much harder for your child to believe they are smart and can succeed). Sadly, I do not believe other schools in Waukesha would be any different. It's all about the money and no longer about the children. Case in point ... the doctor I met with to evaluate my child (a child neurologist) was boggled on why he wasn't already getting help. His pediatrician said the same thing. It was also stated by medical professionals that if I expect any help from Waukesha that I'd be better off getting a lawyer. Why should I have to do that, I ask? Why can't our schools just be expected to do the right thing?

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.
