Stone School has so many great teachers and parents that do such great things for our children .. that more and more people want to be involved with helping to make great things happen. Today we are having a benefit that is trying to raise money for a teacher tha passed away from cancer, create an outdoor learning classroom. By doing little things we can achieve many great things.

My son went to Stone Elementary School from 2nd grade through 5th grade. My son has autistic spectrum disorders with motor skill and learning disabilities. He is very difficult. Stone school and everyone there helped my son with school work, and social problems that he had. They helped my son so much that I believe he is a better person, and will have a much better life. God bless everyone at Stone School. They are all the best, and they helped my son do so much more than I had ever hoped for.

I was very unimpressed with this school. The teachers do their best with what they are given, which is not a lot. There is not a lot of support for new teachers, which is why they have a high turn over rate. The administration is to blame for that, since the principal is not involved. The support services are not involved as much as they should be. They never meet their minutes and then lie about it to the parents face. I would never let my child go to this school!!!

The quality of teaching on this school is sub-par excellent, one of the best in illinois. The teacher to student ratio is followed strictly no overcrowding of students in classroom.

School is behind academically. Transferred to another district last year and was behind in several subjects. Teachers with seniority lack interest in the students. Hopefully they have retired, as has the principal.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
