The ball is hit…deep into the night…and it’s gone!
A grand slam home run for Laconia High School!
District Administrator Gary Hansen
The Wisconsin Knowledge and Concept Exam (WKCE) is a state test for students in third through eighth grades, and tenth grade as well. This year’s results are in and our sophomore class completely shattered the scores!
The data represented is provided by WI DPI at https://apps2.dpi.wi.gov/sdpr/spr.action
This graph displays our 10th grade students scoring well above the state average in all areas tested: 21.5% above the state average in math, 19.3% in reading, 14.2% in language arts, 13.9% in science, and 9.2% in social studies.
While our 10th graders’ scores are outstanding, the scores at all grade levels are worthy of celebration. In fact, when comparing to the ten surrounding school districts – small and large – district composite scores show Rosendale-Brandon students scored 1st in reading and math, 3rd in science, and 4th in language arts and social studies. Maybe not the “grand slam” our 10th graders have, but certainly an “out of the park homerun!”
Scores like this are not easily obtained; they don’t “just happen,” and they certainly didn’t happen overnight. These front leading student scores took years of hard work and all kinds of support; support that traces back to the parents, staff, coaches, school board, and in fact the entire community. Let us take time to celebrate the success by our district which took the dedication of all, and let us especially celebrate such a grand slam stroke by these students.
