As a parent of a Special Ed student, I found them not compliant with the needs of my child. The regular classroom teacher blamed the special ed teacher for not teaching my child and the special ed teacher blamed the regular teacher. In the mean time, my child has suffered from their ignorance! They do not listen to parenst on what works best for our CHILDREN!

Conley presents a challenging academic program for my children. Teachers are very involved and caring. Small class sizes.

Lots of district induced learning disabilities here. They use a one-size-fits-all curriculum and follow server discrepancy model so a child has to be two grade levels behind before they are willing to address the issue. Superintendent main concern is budget and clearly not education. If you have a special needs child stay far away from this school. All students pay the price for their ignorance.

I enrolled my third grader into the gifted program at Conley after he spent 3 years at a Montessori school. We found that his homework consisted of what he had already learned in first grade, and he would come home crying after spending the day at school. After 4 weeks we sent him back to Montessori school. I cannot recommend Conley except for parents that are happy with typical substandard public school education.

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.
