My son was new to Dujardin as a fifth grader. He came from a private school and has transitioned very well into this public school atmosphere! We love the teachers and principal. There have been so many wonderful friendships made for my son at this school! Also, there is plenty of extra help offered! Best school experience so far! I Only wish he had gone sooner!

If you have a child with special needs, DuJardin has excellent NEDSEC classrooms with all services needed. Excellent teachers and staff.

DuJardin has an amazing principal, asst. principal, and teachers. You can feel how much they care about the kids. They really have their acts together. There are always one or two school events coming up, which keeps the families involved. My kids are doing well in their classes and often come home from school excited to tell me something about their day.

My daughter was attending DuJardin school from Kindergarten to second grade. She loves this school. All the staff - teachers, principals and administrators are great. We moved in the middle of the school year to Florida. My daughter was enrolled in one of the best elementary schools, but we were completely disappointed with the new school. She misses her old school and her teacher ( Ms. Becker) so bad, so we decided to return back just because of the school and all the great things she had there.

Every staff member is dedicated to the kids, there is definitely a sense of family here. As the school song says 'it's our home away from home'. Great curriculum and the highest standards. We love DJ!

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.
