If you do not want anything spread in the community about your family, do not discuss with your teacher. Especially in the youngest age grades! I know of teachers that love to make something out of nothing. Sad that a physiological test isn't given, and can't be a part of their hiring procedures. Just a warning to keep in mind. I learned the hard way, hoping no one else goes through what we did.

Principal and sectatary is rude!! dont care about your child unless they are involved in sports..I would rather have them treat each student like they are important to the school as well as the sport children..moved thought it would be a great place small classes and better for my children..boy did i make a mistake!

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.
