District Significantly Exceeds Expectations

District Report Card ScoreThe School District of Elmbrook "significantly exceeds expectations," according to the Department of Public Instruction who released district and school report cards today. The District's rating score of 86.8 is the 11th highest rating score among K-12 districts in the state, based on 2016-17 school year data. Additionally, all of the district's schools received classifications of "significantly exceeds" or "exceeds" expectations, the two highest ratings.

The district and school report cards are intended to create a more standardized methodology for parents and community members to determine the effectiveness of their local districts and schools.

The report cards include outcomes for each school in four priority areas: Student Achievement, Student Growth, Closing Gaps, and Post-Secondary Readiness. Based on a combined score in each of these four areas, scores and ratings are determined for all public schools and districts across the state.
