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.

    I am currently a student at DSHA and I love it. The students are there to learn which makes for a very positive learning environment. The teachers do a superb job and go out of their way to ensure the success of each and every student. The courses are rigorous yet manageable and pleasantly enjoyable. Overall DSHA is a great place to learn and have fun while developing lifelong skills and becoming a knowledgeable well-rounded individual. It is a great school.

    DSHA is a great alternative to Milwaukee public schools. However for the more competitive highly- rated districts like Mequon Hartland or Elmbrook think about it carefully. Some poor teachers are kept because they believe in the mission. Math and science are weak unless the student is on the AP or honors track. Parents who have kids at both MUHS and DSHA will admit DSHA is great for athletics. There is a culture of alcohol that permeates all parent activites. It is the elephant in the room. The English department is quite strong as is the theatre arts. The whole "we get girls" mantra is true and the students make lifelong friendships.

    I am a DSHA alumn class of 1998! My whole educational background before HS was public schools from West Allis and early on Milwaukee. Public schools cannot even hold a candle to the wonderful education I received at DSHA. The teachers went above and beyond to make sure you were always on track you were never just a number. The economical backgrounds of the student body was diverse. My family was not rich and I never felt an issue with that nor did I view the school as snobby. It was all about getting a wonderful education building confidence become a young woman and having fun while doing so! Do not be intimidated by an all girl atmosphere or the tuition this school is for any girl of any ethnic or economical background who wants to get ahead and have fun while doing so!

    Not happy with some of the teachers. High tuition in a time of growing inflstiom

    DSHA provided my daughters with a superior jump start going into college. An outstanding academic institution that provides the girls graduating a foundation not only in academics but in becoming a whole person. It was a very fun energetic and challenging experience for the girls. One that will allow them to become active members of the community.

    Our only two daughters will graduate from DSHA. This is a school that has provided an exceptional education driving self-reliance spirituality critical thinking and self-confidence. The education leadership and environment are worth every penny of the tuition.

    I am currently a freshman at DSHA and I hated the idea of attending there at first but as time progressed I am learning much more than I would in a public high school. I'm still not used to seeing so many girls at one time and I'm still adjusting to the school but overall it's not bad at all.

    I wasn't completely satified with my daughter at DS but it is a good school although not very diverse.

  • (9 years ago)

    I'd recommend DSHA to anyone looking for a serious education combined with a fun high school experience.

    The quality education at DSHA is exceptional. I have never been more happy with a school. My daughter enjoys attending school and she is very self sufficent and all her shyness has diminished. This school is an excellent place for a girl to build confidence focus on her studies and become a well rounded person.

    It has been one of the best decisions we made on behalf of our daughter. She has become so committed to her studies developed wonderful leadership skills and has become dedicated to service in our community. Her teachers are top notch they not only challenge her but seem to geniunely care about her. Mr. Grandy Ms. Weiss Ms. Casper are just some of the stand out teachers she has had over the years. Issues of morality and spirituality are woven into every day. DSHA has high goals to continue to improve not only it's facilities but also works to improve the curriculum staff and opportunities made available to the girls. The school celebrates family by hosting Mother/Daughter Father /Daughter events and service projects. There is a waiting list for this all girls high school for a reason!

    Class of 1976 Alumni This was the place that gave me both my roots and wings. I was taught how to think discern reason and embrace change and growth. I became 'me'. Life hasn't always been as easy as it was in high school but the lessons learned have endured. My understanding of the value of the education I received has only deepened over time!

    I will be a sophomore at DSHA. I cannot think of anything negative to say except that some girls are a bit boy crazy. It's extremely diverse ethnically spiritually and economically. We have good financial aid great academics and brilliant teachers. We have great sports teams even the national champion rugby team. Theology class deepened my faith immensely. I have also met many of other religions something brand new to me. Lutherans Muslims Baptists and Jews are all welcomed just as any other student. All races interact a great quality. This is an amazing school. Don't miss out.

    Excellent academics but snobbery hurts the spirits of the more fragile girls.

  • (11 years ago)

    This school is a shinning star in a dark sky. This is the place where girls can become women with encouragement and pride from their classmates. This school produces confident well mannered women.
