The administration office workers in this school are just awful. Nuebert Elementary secretaries need to learn how to treat a students and their parents. I visited their office several times and each time both of the secretaries were busy talking to each other and always making me wait until their done chatting. Aren't they supposed to be there for students and parents??. They are very unprofessional.. But the worst thing from the worst was when one of the school's admin closes the school doors just in front of my childs' face. That was expressly done and rude, not mentioning not well educational. We all live busy lives and sometimes can't get there by 7:50 but closing the door before 8:00 is just rude. And just try to get a hold of anyone by phone, not even ONCE. I would NOT recommend this school to anyone.

My daughter is new to Neubert this year. While signing her up, the staff and principal couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The school is a close knit community of teachers, staff, students and parents. While visiting my daughter at school, I felt very welcome and everyone knew my daughters name. Pretty impressive considering she had only attended school for a month. We feel blessed that our daughter attends such a fantastic school!

I have 3 children attending Neubert this year. We love the school, the teachers, the principal, the custodial staff. Everyone is very friendly. My children have loved all of their teachers and are looking forward to another great year! Go Neubert Knights!!

It is with great sadness that my 5th grader will be leaving Neubert in a few short weeks. Both of my children have gone to this school from kindergarten through 5th. They've had several stand-out teachers and support staff helping them along the way. A great school!

My child is a new student at Neubert this year and thus far I have found the school to be exceptional. The parent/teacher communication could be better but otherwise I would have to say they are top notch in this community.

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.
