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 really can't tell you how much we love our school! We are recent transplants from Chicago and our children have never had exposure to a quality education like that we have experienced at ESAA (and are children all attended private schools). My husband and I have four children currently enrolled at ESAA. We love the seamlessly integrated approach to the arts. Throughout the week our children participate in drama dance music and art in addition to their regular studies. ESAA is also a project-based learning environment. With this approach students not only understand content more deeply but also learn how to take responsibility and build confidence solve problems work collaboratively communicate ideas and be creative innovators. Wonderful wonderful school!

    ESAA is an exciting environment for children to develop in a culture of thinking. The arts and multiple intelligence approaches are used to bring students to their greatest potential. It is a great place to work!

    ESAA is an excellent school with an integrated arts philosophy. The teachers work together well and adhere to a whole child approach. I have been thrilled to have my children enrolled in this school!
