Wow........... that about says it all. We need to focus on reinforcing writing fundamentals at the high school level, Oh and we need some Asians.


Posted June 10, 2012

The school is really great, such as the working environment, some of the people there are really nice, and the classes are stupendous.It is really nice but as a student I saw that the diversity in the school is really poorly; I'm not being all racist, but the majority of the students are white, and I saw about 9 Hispanics , like maybe 4 African Americans, and no Asians. The school needs to find a program which allows other students from different place of the world to come there( if there such a program). The other problem is that the school doesn't have a lot of electives, it only gives you the general electives. There are no such thing as Web design, Cosmotology, Drafting, photography, Auto Tech, Drama, and so on. The classes are the same( math,science,social studies ,etc.); the school doesn't offer advanced classes such as honor class and AP classes. The lunch isnt as great because there is one line out of the two others that serve pizza everyday and it must be discontinued. This is not a place for a student who wants to experience the world of opportunities. Earlier I mentioned that the people there are kind, but some of them are a bit rude. Im a student saying the truth.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
