I like all the wonderful teachers. This will be my final year at Eienhower I will miss the compassion of the staff. The understanding staff and friends I have made there, the parents truly care about the school. I feel that overall this school is wonderful, and all the staff have become good friends to the family. Thank you for all the fine years.

Great diversity program. Weak on special needs. Wonderful parent involvement. School soon will be outgrowing its environment. Classes are 20+ with minimal support.

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.
