District Exceeds Expectations on School Report Cards

Friday, November 19, 2021

     According to the 2020-21 school report cards released by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction on November 16, the Seneca Area School District earned a score of 75.4, and a rating of 4 stars out of a possible 5.  Based on their rating, the Seneca Area School District Exceeds Expectations for educating students.  Report cards are issued based on four priority areas: student achievement in English language arts and mathematics, student growth, closing gaps between student populations, and measures of readiness for graduation and postsecondary success. 

     The District score is a composite of the three schools making up the District.  Breaking the District scores down by grade levels: The elementary received a score of 63.7, “meets expectations” (3 stars). The middle school received a score of 83.5 “significantly exceeds expectations” (5 stars). The high school received a rating of 71.7, “exceeds expectations” (4 stars).

     This report card is a credit to the job our students, families, and teachers did last year during very difficult circumstances.  School and District report cards provide information to the community, but they do not represent the the full picture of the work happening here at school.  Our school continues to provide the best possible educational opportunities for our students by promoting a balance of academics, extra-curricular activites, vocational opportunities, and values. We will continue to emphasize character traits like leadership, self-esteem, achievement, accountability, and a strong work ethic to our young people.  The District report card reflects the dedication of the students and parents, the quality of the staff, and the commitment of the community to our school district. 

The school report card can be found on the school website at: www.seneca.k12.wi.us
