Test Scores by grade


Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS)

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.

    As a former student and a parent of 4 children I am very satisfied with this school and always have been. The scholarships available are top notch! My kids have always gotten any extra help they have asked for or needed. Extra curricular activities are well run and give these kids something to do in an area that lacks much of anything for kids to do. My kids have had some of my 'old' teachers so to me that shows their dedication to our school system. The buildings have been remodeled and look great. I'm proud of our schools.

    There are a few shining stars (students teachers and parents) but as a overall group it is a disappointment. The teachers are more worried about their union and pay increases than about educating their students. Only one or two teachers will even consider going out of his or her way to open the weight room in the morning after school or on the weekends. Cuba City has a attitude of entitlement rather than one of education and service.

    I'm currently in my last year of college after graduating from Cuba City High School. At college I've been able to compare my prior education to many other high schools and I'm always amazed at other student's lack of general education. I'd say that 80% of my college classes were easier and less demanding than my high school classes. For a little school in a town of 2000 people it does very well. Obviously you can't expect all the resources a large school might have but it makes up for this with the character. I graduated knowing every single person in my class and continue to have close relationships with many of them. My only complaint would be with the sport's department. As with many small schools sports become overly important.

    Cuba City school is in the top when it comes to testing every year! They also have so many days per year that by the time you child finishes 4 years of High School he/she has actually gone five! Great education!

    The building faculty (except a few) and staff are unfortunately very very poor at this institution.

    A $4.7 million building referendum was passed prior to the May 2005 review noted on this site. Much needed remodeling began in June 2005 to be completed before school starts this fall. The Cuba City School District is exceptional. Don't let the former appearance of the school buildings turn you away. Cuba City students always exceed the State average in ACT scores (and Wisconsin leads the nation). 85% to 95% of our graduates attend college and more than half go to 4-year universities. On average $3 500 to $6 500 PER GRADUATING SENIOR is awarded in scholarships and educational benefits every year -- resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars to students. Cuba City is one of just a few schools in the area to offer Advanced Placement courses in Math Science English and History. Cuba City does NOT cut corners on education. The Cuba City School District is without doubt one of the finest around.

    This school (primarily the High School) is very run down and some rooms are a danger to kids. The community has repeatedly refused to increase funding to the school. This has resulted in a poor teaching environment for both the staff and the teachers. Overall very few parents are really involved with the school. It is sad that such a rich and diverse community is represented by this school.
