it is an excellent school with alot of quality
—Submitted by a student


Posted October 28, 2009

Humphrey is a great school. It is in a decent neighborhood, it has many extracurricular activities, and even an after school homework club. The teachers do alot to help students learn and succeed. Teachers also do very well with staying in contact with parents via phone, letters or email. The only drawback seems to be peer pressure to fist fight for a 'popular status' that however, may just be the age of the students, all brand new teenagers!

As a teacher at Humphrey I find it very enjoyable to teach children with such diverse backgrounds. The only negative about HHH is the parents who don't get involved with their children's education. Out of 150 students I have a day only about 20 parents usually come to orientation night or curriculum night. Parents need to be accountable for their child's education. We are not miracle workers. Get involved with your child people.

I have children who attended in the late 90's and HHH was adequate, at that time.I am shocked at the quality overall at this shcool now. Both the principal and assistant are totally out of touch. There is no discipline and my child and I are thankful for each day that passes without serious incidents. WHAT CAN WE DO?

Principal is an idiot. He's more interested in self-promotion than student progress. Discipline is non-existant. My son is afraid to go into the bathrooms. He tells me the other students are constantly talking back to the teachers. The teachers spend more time on discipline than actually teaching the kids. They need help!

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.
