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.

    I am a grandparent of a third grader at Winnequa...and these first 3 years of his learning has been phenomenal !!!! He loves school thanks to all his teachers so far...and sure his remaining years will be just as great ! They are just SO dedicated and caring ! His love for reading was sparked by Mr. Fiedler and I thank him for that !! Think he got his math skills honed by Ms Koski.....and of course his start in K was the place he started to enjoy school ! THANK YOU TO ALL HIS PAST-PRESENT-AND FUTURE TEACHERS !! I AM GRATEFUL !! (also just happen to have been a teacher for a short time)

    Wonderful dedicated and caring teachers curriculum based on affirmative creative and empowerment to grow kids who can thrive with complete skill sets as well as social development safe and challenging altogether. We are new here recently transplanted and have felt welcomed and encouraged to engage in our T4K and first graders' introduction to the school and community. Go Owls!

    This is a wonderful school. Attention to needs of students is terrific. Fourth grade teacher Mrs. Grace is a kind and caring lady who motivates the children and genuinely cares about their progress.

    Nichols is a delightful little place. In the '07-'08 school year it will be moving to a newly remodeled building but will have the same principal and will be adding a grade (so it will be 3-6 instead of 3-5). No school is perfect but the staff is kind generous and educated.
