Me gusta la escuela los maestros muy profesi nales todo muy bien, Lo nico es el personal que tienen en la entrada de la oficcina, las recepcionistas que tienen enfrente que hablan espa ol, se cienten superior a la gente que habla solo espa ol , muy pronto se mira cuando no tienen educacion son mal educadas yo e ido varias ocacciones , y eh hablado x tel fono - y no me gusta como se x tan repugnantes.y solo x eso estoy tan indisgusto x estas personas. Es el primer a o mi hijo en esta escuela. Y la verdad eso me molesta x que x eso ellas est n al frente para alludar a gente que no habla ingles y resulta que son muy repugnantes. Que triste que es nuestra propia gente y no quieran alludar a su propia gente.

This school does not service preschoolers. It is K-5 only. The lady on the phone was pleasant.

This is my daughter 2nd year in JR Tibbot Elementary School and I have to say she has improved alot more this year. She's in 1st grade but I'm impress that she reads alot and loves to read and not only in spanish but also in english. I'm delighted with all aspects and thankfull to all the staff and with her teacher Ms Verastequi for the dedication she gives to my daugther. At first I thought she was so strick to be teaching on 1st grade but my daughter has learned alot more. I highly recommend Tibbott School and keep up the great job with the stutdents.

Both of my daughters attend(ed) Tibbot. They enjoy the atmosphere and the dedication of their teachers. Mr. Carli, who just retired knew most of the students by name, had a nice word for all students and inspired the teachers to challenge the students to love the educational setting. I was disappointed when the guitar lessons did not take place this year as hoped. I am delighted with all aspects of this school and would highly recommend it. Students can even stay before and after school under supervision if their parents can afford it. What I don't like is that the district only offers bus rides under 1 1/2 miles. This is too much for little children in rough or cold weather.

I would like to first start off with a hats off to Mr.Carli(principal).My son and I moved to this area two years ago. My son was struggling with the death of his'granny' and I too(my mom. His grades were lousy so I decided to have a talk with Mr.Carli who reassured me that kids transferring from outside of of the district have a harder time adjusting. He told me to be patient, and I did and now my son is a straight B plus one C student! His staff is excellent.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
