Wisconsin Academy is very well run. The communication with parents is stellar, and the staff are very responsive. We compared this school to other options before enrolling our child. The buildings and classrooms are kept in a very high state of repair, and it is obvious that the school is focused on being the best that it can be for its mission and for the students. We are continually impressed with the caliber of the faculty and staff, and we would highly recommend this school.
