This school is failing its students. The academic standards of the school are unrealistic , there is no focus on skills. This school focuses on state testing the entire school year instead of focusing on teaching its students what they need to know to be successful.If a student from The Calumet School District were to transferr to a different school I'm sure that student would be behind academically at another school. They have no after school enrichment programs, they do not offer help to those students that may need it. They jump around subjects never focusing on rather or not that subject is mastered by its students. They have had 4 principals in 3yrs this school is a total disgrace. THIS SCHOOL IS RAN LIKE A BUSINESS and not at all like an educational institute.

I'm a resident of Calumet Park.The schools in this district has been in trouble for many years. What is needed for all to pull together for the children. Far as teacher we need programs for teacher to attend.The Administration need to have better understanding of what the district need. Parents need to attended more board meeting. The district has been known too have board meeting that are rather long. But this is for the future of the children, and also parents can be educated on the policy of the district.

This is a school and a district in serious trouble. The principal is new every year - sometimes 2 or 3 different ones in a year. There is no continuity of academics, reporting, or discipline. The school is dirty and unhealthy and should be closed.

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.
