The staff, There is nothing to say , every member of the staff is always willing to help and be there for every child. They have my utmost respect for the time and effort that they put into their work. They have an expection for each child in their classroom and try to exceed those for each one of their students. And I as a parent of a student there I admire their willingness to help every child . And keeping their education and safety in prosective.

It is a great school to help students grow and has great opportunities for students to learn and prosper into individuals that will be optimistic and positive people to society. The school has eager students and staff who strive in succeeding however, without additional funds it is hard to accomplish.

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.
