Good school, good teachers, good vice principle, and pretty good conduct by the students. My one issue has to do with the teaching staff being on the same page with grading standards. The 0 - 4 grading system is supposed to solve that issue but it appears there isn't enough emphasis on standardizing the application of it.

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.
