MARSHFIELD – Local schools and school districts scored well in the recently released 2016-17 report cards, disclosed by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
The government-mandated report cards calculate the growth and added value of the education provided at Wisconsin schools.
The report cards are designed to help schools, and the districts that administer to them, determine what improvements they might make to prepare students for their next educational step, in or outside of the district.
For overall performance, the Marshfield Unified School District scored 77.4 out of a possible 100, giving it four out of five stars and classifying the district as exceeding expectations.
Five star schools which significantly exceeded expectations were: Grant Elementary, with an overall score of 83.3; Nasonville Elementary, with an overall score of 88; and Washington Elementary, with an overall score of 88.1. Lincoln and Madison scored four stars, and the Marshfield Middle School and High School scored three stars, meeting expectations.
The Stratford School District received four stars and the Auburndale, Pittsville, and Spencer school districts received three stars, also meeting expectations.
Of the state’s 2,101 schools, 361 public and private schools earned five-star ratings, 719 had four stars, 643 had three stars, 261 had two stars, and 117 schools received one star.
