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 wouldn't wish for any child to have to go to this school... The front desk staff are rude and disrespectful along with most of the teachers.

    Horrible. Upon trying to get my daughter reduced lunch a member of the school noticed that "I" moved to the next town (divorce) without so much as a phone call they had my daughter pulled from the bus route. She was standing out in the cold as the bus drove by her. The school knew the situation and she was being picked up & dropped off at her grandma's house for weeks. Wasn't a problem till we tried to get some help with lunch. She won't be going back next year.

    Poor welcoming from staff at school each and every time I go to this building and I don't go often. The principal seems to be way too busy to respond back only forwards emails on over to others to address and handle.

    because this school really has programs that help the kids like the after school programs for kids

  • (8 years ago)

    This school offers a lot to kids that age. Their band program is the best. Also the 8th grade history teachers make the kids remember so much.
