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.

    This school is terrible. I've been going to cudahy schools my entire life and it's been bad. I've been getting bullied for several years. After I told them what I was going through they said something would be done. Guess what? It wasn't. The teachers don't care if you're child succeeds or not. All they care about is their paycheck. The students are definitely not first priority here.

    CHS has had a poor reputation but after going there I realize that it's just as good as any of the schools that say otherwise. I am at the top of my class and have received many post high school opportunities because of CHS. There are bullies slackers and kids who are on the wrong path but there are also driven intelligent talented students who take their education seriously. CHS has dedicated teachers who devote a lot of their free time to helping students like myself get an excellent education. Being a public school CHS has a wide variety of people who go there. Going to CHS has taught me how to deal with people who are very unlike myself and how to find those who have similar interests. Unlike going to a school where every student has an impressive GPA and has never been in trouble going to CHS has presented me with social and academic challenges that will most definitely help me in the future. Education is what your child makes of it. CHS was the last place I wanted to go to high school but now that I'm graduating I realize that I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else.

    This school is a GREAT small community school. The terachers are top notch. They put forth alot of their free time to help the students achieve their goals. The athletic's that this school offers are wonderful you can see the compassion in the coaches actions and the players.

    The teachers are fantastic and care about each student individually. However if you want for your child to have a great education and a good social life or even an alright social life do not send them to CHS. A lot of the children there are bullies and tend to disrupt the learning environment.

    I am a parent of a Cudahy High School Student my daughter as had problems with being bullied in this School for two years now. My daughter has taken this issue to the proper authorities numerous times and with no help from them she continues to have problems. It's a pretty sad day when your daughter is afraid to go to school and receives no help from the ones that we entrust with their safety when at school.

    Do you know what Packer Pride is? Well I do because I go to school there! If you have never seen how much we care then you havnt been there! Packer Pride is much more about how our school looks but how we act and the students look. Everything we do reflects our school city friends family teacher...etc LETS GO PACKERS!!!

    I love the fact that our High School has teachers that are invested in their students education and extra curricular activities. They go out of their way to make sure that their students can find balance and achieve all that they care to. The school offers a ton of extra curriculars AP classes and special interest classes. The staff is fabulous!

    Compared to the big city public schools that my kids were going to attend this school by far is great. Alot of school spirit and concern by teachers.

    Poor school with a staff that is indifferent in general. Upper management has serious disconnect from student body especially the Dean of Students. Some good teachers in their art and science departments but overall a below average learning institution.

    The academic possibiliteies here are wonderful. AP Classes are offered and encouraged teachers help you every part of the way. The staff wants you to be prepared for real life- they care about you as an individual.

    Cudahy is a good academic school. I feel that they truly prep you for college. The activities provided at the school are awsome. As a graduate I left that school ready to move on to college. The teacher go above and beyond to help you.
