Reavis was a wonderful challenging environment that prepared my 3 children for college. Reavis has excellent teachers, coaches and activity sponsors who deeply care for their students!

As not only a past student. now a parent of grown kids who went to reavis. let me say I hated school could not wait to get out. my parents were to busy working to be involved with my schooling. And let me tell you I was very involved with my kids.. that is it in a nut shell. the school is better then most. they are on top of our changing community. I give all of burbank schools credit for that. Now if more parents would get involved with there kids you will see they can and will do good. My kids all are proof of that. Yes there are good staff and bad in all schools. but over all I believe Reavis will work the the kids and parents. I see an extremely diffrent goup of kids today, So we need to look at that too.

Wonderful school! The teachers work hard to provide their students with an education preparing for the future! All three of my daughters have gone there and graduated from college! My oldest went to UIC, my middle went to Notre Dame, and my last went to PENN State. I have no complains about this school.

Reavis is one of the best academic wise, It has great teachers and counselors, and of course the superintendent and principal, they all work for the student to achieve their highest potential, I had 4 of my girls and 5th one on the way this year, and son soon will follow in 2007, I also graduated from Reavis in 1970, Every year they look to the future and what's to come for your child's training in future jobs and they prepare for that.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE 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.

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.
