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.

    Grant school has it's benefits as well as it's negatives. My son attended there as well as a school in Walworth county during 2nd grade. He was way behind in the Walworth county school. Math especially. I really did enjoy the teachers my son had and they were a positive part in his development. The education department could be better by far.

    Both of my children have attended Grant for all of their Elementary schooling. My wife and I have been amazed by the experiences the teachers have provided and the individual attention they have received! We chose to send our son and daughter to Grant even though we do not live within the Grant boundaries. We are convinced that we made the right choice! The Grant family meetings are fantastic and the various other family involvement opportunities are all excellent. We are proud to be a part of the Grant school family!

    Grant School is a wonderful school. There are SMART Boards and ELMOS in almost every classroom or soon there will be. The teachers and support staff are extremely knowledgeable and caring. Grant students out preformed ESAA the charter school in the same building on the 2010 WKCE Exam. Grant recognizes positive behavior with quarterly rewards and a weekly family meeting that acknowledges students' birthdays above the line behavior and allows them to showcase projects they have been working in their classrooms with the rest of their peers. There are so many activities for students to be involved in such as the Homework Club Student Council and Fishing Club. The guidance counselor is amazing! She knows every student in the building on a first name basis. Each month she organize Character Education Meetings where students learn how to be kind honest respectful responsible and have self-control. I think Grant is one of the best schools in the district and I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else!

    Grant School has 5.4 % of it's children with learning disabilities while ESAA had 2.4% in 2009 - 2010. To imply that ESAA is a school for children with LD is misleading. Check out the data for yourself at the WI DPI website. Both are good schools housed under one roof.

    The Grant School building offers two schools within our building. Grant School is geared towards high academic success and the Elementary School for Arts & Academics is an outstanding program for children with learning disabilities.
