For the second year in a row, the Grafton School District has achieved the highest accountability rating of “significantly exceeds expectations” in the school report card issued by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction this week.

The overall score for Grafton was 86.5, which is 2.1 points higher than last school year. Grafton was ranked ninth out of 367 school districts in the state, which places the district in the 2.5 percentile.

Among Ozaukee County school districts, Grafton ranks second, trailing only Mequon-Thiensville. 

The report cards use a range of criteria to calculate rankings, which include results from standardized tests. The DPI released an overall score for each school district as well as each school.

The overall score is based on student achievement, district growth, closing gaps and on-track and postsecondary readiness.

Woodview Elementary School achieved a score of 75.7 points, Kennedy Elementary School received 80.4 and John Long Middle School earned 82.2, all of which were graded as “exceeds expectations.”

Grafton High School earned a score of 88.9, or “significantly exceeds expectations.”

“This rating system affirms the efforts of our staff to reach our motto of ‘Every Student, Every Day’ and is a result of the priority on learning that our staff, students and parents exhibit on a daily basis,” Supt. Jeff Nelson said.

“The Grafton School District is proud to achieve the highest accountability rating.”
