My child attended this school 2nd -4th grade. During that time there was one teacher who really truly helped my child and followed the IEP. His 4th grade experience was nothing short of a nightmare. After many months of expressing my concerns for poor grades long struggling nights of homework I was informed that the school had not been following the IEP. This school was a major disappointment and I could have sued them for not following the IEP. Instead I switched schools and my child ended up be held back a year. We found an excellent school and he is now bringing home A's and B's. The new school will not pull out during other subjects for IEP help either but Cloverdale does causing the child to miss other subjects like sciene and history. Unacceptable !!!!

I love cloverdale! i have two kids there now. We have been there for 4 years, since kindergarden. The education and the staff both are at the highest expectations. I have met and worked with some very good people at this school, and i think it is a great place for kids and parents alike to be.

Cloverdale is the best school my kids have ever attended. The school building and its 3 playgrounds were beautifully contructed in 2000 with the children's safety, comfort, and educational development in mind. The staff is wonderful and maintain a good environment of trust, respect, responsibility, and caring which the children learn to emulate. The teachers are highly educated and knowledgeable in their field and truly interested in the children both in their academic and character development as well as their over all well being.

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.
