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 have a child in PVE with a second one to attend this next year. I think PVE is awesome and the staff and teachers are very helpful and kind. My child enjoys going to school and has good things to say about school. Thank you! I'm extremely happy with the Oregon Elementary PTO and how hard all the volunteers work to make extra things happen for the kids and schools/teachers. I hope even more people will get involved with the PTO and what it has to offer. Thank you PVE!!

    Staff refuses to work with or listen to parents. Issues that can be worked on over the phone I was told to leave work and pick my child up. Was lied to by staff about true situations. One sentience I am told "my child threw ball at student" very next statement was told "No students were involved". True story is my child did not hear direction from staff and was sent to office for the day. When I said all day crime doesn't fit punishment was told by staff they weren't changing punishment & to pick son up.....

    Everything! We had to move to find better schools and we were not disappointed once we started here. PVE has been wonderful for both of our children. The teachers really care and don't sit around complaning about what they don't have. Instead they do the best with what they do have and try to find ways to bring in money on their own. The school is very open with parernts if something different or out of line occurs. We are not kept in the dark. If there is a problem it is dealt with and not swept under the carpet. My kids enjoy going and feel safe. That is important to me.

    I have two children attending this school this year. My youngest in Kinder has had a great year! I cannot say enough good things about Mrs. Wulff she is exactly what a teacher should be! However I also have a child in 2nd. Terrible year! This school only has three reporting periods per year with no parent/teacher conferences during the trimester. Only after report cards are distributed and just to discuss what is on the report card. My child has gone from being a GT student in one district to a below average student with no explination at all. My 2nd grader's teacher cannot keep her class under control and when I tried to speak with the principle about my concerns I felt very blown off. I am seriously considering pulling both of my children out of this school and putting them in private.

    Prairie View has a spectacular principal who devotes herself to the entire school community. The teachers are energetic and continually seeking new and better ways to help the students comprehend and retain the curriculum. The enthusiasm at Prairie View is palpable.
