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 is a great school. Hard working students and teachers. A lot of the kids come from St. Marys which is the best grade school in the city. It could use some help in the sports area. They focus to much on certain sports and cater to a few families which is really sad to see. But being a small town I guess that happens. The Band is awesome great leader there that includes everyone no matter what. The art progam is wonderful. I can't say enough about the vleadership there.
