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.

    This school has an amazing fine arts team many band concerts and a huge fine arts showcase at the end of the year that gets every student involved. There is a tudoring program after school on Tues and Thurs. and also we have about every sport. The coaches are almost all Wisc Dells High School alumni and respected in the community. We also have a great food services and technology system. We have about 65 computers in the library and around 40 laptops between 6-8 science.

    This school is a great all around school! If you want the big fine arts program go to a big city this is a small town and all the new gym equipment was off of a grant.

    I went to this school for a long time and i really really enjoyed it. I loved the people love the teachers. I really liked the band and the sports. I recommend this school to anyone. Also there wasn't any racial issues that went on when i went to school everyone got along very well.

    I'm not really a parent but instead a student here. I student who has been complaining about this school and the lack of interest in the fine arts. We're getting all new gym equitment while our choir director runs of a very inadequate budget for three choirs! Many sports are available but there is no drama club or creative writing group. Students are occasionaly lucky enough to have chances to perform solos or anything on stage for that matter.

    My daughter just started this fall and we have been very pleased with everyone at the school.
