Wisconsin Forward 2017-18 Test Results

The Forward Exam is administered online in the spring of each school year at: grades 3-8 in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics, grades 4 and 8 in Science and, grades 4, 8, and 10 in Social Studies. The Forward Exam is a rigorous online standardized test that is taken by both regular education students and those with special education plans of service. This last year, Seton School students took the exam for the first time. Results arrived in July and parents were mailed their child(ren)'s results in August. As you can see by the graphics below, we have 59.9% of students who scored proficient or advanced. As we are considered our own district, we have no district comparison scores.


After our students are tested during the spring of 2019, we will have two years of data which will provide the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction with the data necessary to issue a Wisconsin State School Report Card for Seton Catholic. At that time we will be able to see how our scores and attendance match up to our public school neighbors and to other schools in the state.

Drop Off and Pick Up

Please remember that there is no parking in the marked zone in front of our main doors on Superior Avenue. If you would like to park your vehicle, please use our back lot or other street parking.


When picking up your children at the end of the day, our procedures are the same as last school year. In the back parking lot the drive through lane is for entering and exiting the lot only. There should be no students entering or exiting a vehicle in this lane.


Students in grades 5-8 may walk to a parked vehicle and may escort a younger sibling. Students in grades 3K-4 will remain behind the cones to be picked up by a parent or guardian.


Last year we had some near misses for students in the vehicle traffic. Please be cooperative and follow procedures so that we can avoid an accident. Thank you.

From the Archdiocese...

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We’ve received some inquiries regarding relief collections for Hurricane Florence. If your parish and/or school would like to participate in these relief efforts, please see details within the statement below, and share with your parish and/or school communities:

How You Can Help: Statement from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Regarding Hurricane Florence

As Hurricane Florence moves rapidly through the Carolinas, we lift up in prayer all of those who may be impacted, asking God to guide the first responders to those in need, and to ‘love thy neighbor’ by offering assistance to those within their community and beyond.

Initially a Category 4 hurricane, Florence has produced rainfall flooding, life-threatening storm surges and destructive winds. Despite being a thousand miles away in Wisconsin, we still have ways to help victims of Hurricane Florence.

One way to assist is through making a donation to Catholic Charities USA. The agencies of Catholic Charities directly impact areas by initially taking on the role as short-term disaster responders, providing victims with food, financial aid, clothing, shelter, gas and retail store cards, and household goods.

In addition, Catholic Charities has opened shelters, established temporary housing in diocesan and state facilities, provided crisis counseling, organized parish “Adopt-a-Family" programs, held furniture drives, and raised money to offer assistance.

Donations can be made online at catholiccharitiesusa.org or by texting CCUSADISASTER to 71777.

Let us join in prayer for those who are in the path of Hurricane Florence. May God bless and protect them, and may He extend the might of his right hand and bid the sea be “quiet and still” (Mark 4:39).
