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 with a wonderful way of accepting children from all backgrounds cultures and religions. My children have really loved being here. I am glad to have them at a smaller school that is so diverse. They also get a broad range of classes including music art and physical education in addition to the important basic skills. While it is a Catholic school the learning promotes broader concepts than one specific religion to include children who are not Catholic.

    My son was having a very tough time in his large public middle school. At Saint Vincent Pallotti my son gets the attention he needs and isn't falling in with the wrong type of crowds. The teachers really care and the students are very good in their behavior.

    This school is outstanding in many ways. The teachers and staff work very hard to create a nurturing environment for my kids. The school's spiritual mission is woven into the fabric of everything they do and as a result I feel like my kids are really going to be a step ahead once they get to high school.

    St Vincent Pallotti school has become a second home for my children. They feel accepted and loved by the principal and their teachers. I feel the level of education is both challenging and rewarding for my kids. I also am happy with the small class sizes. Absolutely recommend this school to others.

    This school is outstanding. The principal is hands on and teaching staff is top notch. As you walk through the doors you can feel the commitment not only to education but to living a good life and contributing positively to this world we live in. Keep it up!

    I feel as though this school is going in the wrong direction this year. Unfortunately we are undergoing many changes and they are not necessarily for the better. There has been a lot of chatter regarding the leadership quality. As far as the students are concerned many are confused as well as the teachers. How are the children going to learn appropriately when they feel lost?
