Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS)

In 2011-2012 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.

    This school is awesome. I love the way the credit recovery program works. Now that they are in a new building there is more space for the students to move around.

    My Son was having significant problems with his first year of high school now he's excelling at all levels he loves school adores his teachers and the staff. I love his teachers and the staff they are excellent wonderful I would rate this school with the highest levels of acedemic acheivements. It's small and personal some children need that everyone isn't cut out for the larger schools some children need that personal touch for their educational needs and this Assata is defintely it I would put all my children in this school they bring out the best in students unlike the larger schools that don't care or just don't care about anything especially the students at Assata they really care about what's going on with their students in school and at home. I rate it with a 100&
