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 use to go to St. Francis and it was awful. There were always a group of students in the hall who were always skipping classes. The principal is never around and the vice principal doesn't do anything. I got bullied so badly there I had no friends and I had to eat lunch in the bathroom. When my mom called the school about it they just yelled at me for eating in the bathroom. Lunch may be good but by the time you get it you have like 5 minutes to eat it. This was the worst school I have EVER gone to! If you want to keep your child safe from bullies I suggest you keep your child OUT of this school.

    My son came to SFHS from a K-8 elementary school in the MPS system. He knew very few people coming to the school and I was concerned because he can be shy due to learning difficulties. He loves going to SFHS and has made many new friends. I am impressed with the amount of individual attention he gets from the main office to his academic teachers. The size of the school gives it an atmosphere where almost everyone knows each other. So far we feel lucky because our son is adjusting so well and loves attending SFHS.

    This school is excellent I am in 8th grade but will be attending this school next year. I have seen the school and its activities many times and they are excellent. I have never seen so many varieties of classes to take electives or extracurricular activities.

    Okay I am a student at SF. I enjoy it but I am also very involved. There aren't very many classes to choose from but those that are offered are great! The teachers are very knowledgeable in their subjects and most would be glad to help any student. With only 500-600 students class sizes are reasonable and the student interaction is greater.
