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.

    Not the best nor the worst but i will say I've had fun these years and i really hope the school keeps growing. Hopefully soon we could make it a better school together and spend our financial money for whats necessary or something rebuilt or new we could use in the school.

    As a current student here at DDHS I think it's a great school but it is faulty especially the way they can't control or assign us to out schedules we've turned in.

    I think that this school is great. My children enjoy going here. Not to mention there amazing wrestling program.

    I've seen huge gains in administrative leadership. I have had 100% cooperation with all my children's needs - from extended illness issues to advanced placement courses. My oldest earned a very high score on college placement testing which in turn earned LOTS of scholarship funds from his private college. Also once there he is doing VERY well having been very well prepared by DDHS.

    There was a new schedule implemented this year that made the students take less classes. Also the AP and Fine Arts classes were booked at the same time.

    I think that the DDHS is a fantastic place! The teachers are always willing to help out my child whenever he needs it. I could not disagree with the other comments made before.

    When children fail it is a reflection of the teachers who teach. Just because a failing notice is sent to a parent does not mean the teachers job is done. I do not know of any job that would accept a failure as a job well done.

    The school climate set by the building administrators is the lowest it has every been. Students have lost pride in their school.
