This is a very good school. They have their own gifted classes. They have wonderful after school programs. A lot of schools are going green now. I think Clinton should think about how to communicate with all parents by email.

Best school ever. This school is like a private school but public.No bully's at this school plus it's in a safe neighborhood.

The staff here truly care about the students and meeting their academic and social emotional needs. In addition to a rigorous academic program, there are a variety of fine arts enrichment offerings. Clinton also offers a wide variety of after school options like organized seasonal sports programs, Drama, Lego Robotics and Mad Science. Clinton has had recent renovations including the playground, gym and auditorium. I'm excited to see what the future holds for Clinton Elementary!

Clinton Elementary contains a stimulating environment that not only holds high expectations for students but the staff as well. Currently there are 10 teachers pursuing their National Board Certification, the highest certificate a teacher can earn. This year long process requires candidates to demonstrate effective and accomplished teaching through videos, written submissions, and evidence of student learning. I look forward to working at Clinton Elementary as we become a premiere school in Chicago.

Every school should have a Principal who is a great communicator, facilitator, and who gets things done! At Clinton that is what Mr Cesario is and I would like to say thank you for being a positive influence at our school! Keep it up!

Clinton School is a gem of a neighborhood school. The school climate is one of high academic expectations while at the same time addressing the individual needs of each student. Focus on the social/emotional learning of students results in a calm atmosphere where students feel safe and where a sense academic competence can be instilled. The administration maintains an "open door policy" and is accessible to parents and students. There is a feeling of being a part of a family with whom all student's best interests are in mind and which includes all faculty and staff. This school gets it right and will only get better every year.

Having personally experienced the transformation of Clinton, I am thrilled to be part of s school that has a dynamic and visionary principal, and an outstanding faculty that brought to fruition Principal Cesario's innovative programs. Clinton teachers are true practitioners of Differentiated Instruction, Response To Intervention, and Project-based learning. And barely a day goes by, without an improvement or upgrade to further facilitate student growth and learning. Clinton is a "Community School" with a fully staffed resource center that serves parents, arranges student enrichment programs, and offers students and their families a continuum of support services. Clinton faculty and students joyfully reflect the culturally diverse community in an atmosphere of respect and cooperation. But don't take my word. Go see for yourself. Clinton is a hidden gem with a brilliant future.

Clinton school is an excellent school. My child currently attends Clinton. There was a "dark period" where Clinton was under horrible leadership. Since the new Principal, Mr. Cesario, has joined the staff, the school has done a 360. I would recommend this school to anyone in the neighborhood. It is an excellent education with an excellent atmosphere. I am so happy we are here.

Principal Cesario has done wonders for Clinton School and the neighborhood. The overall atmosphere of the school is cheerful and upbeat. The halls reflect student artwork and murals painted by adult volunteers. All of the staff seems to get along, and come to work on a daily basis, devoted to student success. There are several before school and after school programs focusing on academics and social-emotional learning. There are several counselors available at any time to talk to students. In addition, Clinton school is now a Community School, focusing on improving not only the school, but the community by offering ELL programs for the parents, the "abc's of homework," and other programs which allow the parents to also become involved. Clinton also offers Music and Drama to the students. There is an outside dance program, and various programs which other schools, highly rated schools, do not have. It is sad to read the horrible reviews from the past years. Clinton is a really great place and I am confident that our parents and students are happy with the successes Clinton has accomplished under the new leadership.

I taught at Clinton for over 20 years and reluctantly retired because of what I considered outrageously poor leadership on the part of the then principal and local school council. A once great school became a 'toy' of a few and the children and staff were the victims. Since then the principal has left. I hope new leadership can rebuild a once great school.

Aside from the teachers,who are trying the best with what they are given, i do not have many great things to say about the school itself. The violence, lack of discipline and guidance is absolutely atrocious..... it is extremely chaotic, with little organization. The neighborhood is great, being the most diverse in the city and this spills over into the school which is wonderful. If they would implicate this true gift of such great diversity into the curriculum, it would be such an advantage to both the students and faculty, as well as the community. I feel bad for the students attending this school, they are really being shorted on the education they should be receiving... which is sad. I know many wonderful students from this school and i do not want to discredit them in any way, its just the school itself is such a disappointment.

The school environment and administration make Clinton a miserable place to be. The school is too over-crowded. There are 2 buildings with minimal comminication between them. The staff is so poorly treated and disrespected by administration that most are burnt out and miserable. There is very little parental support, discipline, and communication. Do not send your child here and definitely do not accept a job here!

Clinton is in one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the city of Chicago. It has potential but is not there yet. There is an unfortunate lack of Physical education and extracurricular. More so than most schools in this NCLB world. Science is not daily either. I was a little shocked. They use Open court reading to prep for th etest but there is little encouragement for the students to excel past these low standards. The teachers are involved and care about the students, they are given little support or encouragement to push the students. Overall, the education my son received was serviceable, but I want more for him than mediocrity and merely passing the test.

Clinton has the potential of being one of the top schools in Chicago; however, this will not happen as long as the current administration is in place. The administration places low expectations on students, is weak at maintaining control of students' discipline and the curriculum at all grade levels teaches to the test. For example seventh grade students score high on math standardized tests, but their overall analytical knowledge of basic math concepts is at a fourth grade level. The curriculum does not prepare students for high school and beyond. The dicipline is the biggest problem. At the times the halls and lunch room are extremely loud and chaotic. Other elements that are non existent is a bi-lingual and specal education program. Special ed students do not get their required hours and ofter slip through the cracks. Parent be aware of Clinton.

I am a teacher at Clinton for the upper grade levels. This school shows well from the outside but from the inside it is a diffrent story. The majority of the students that attend Clinton are good kids. However, just like in any school, you will find rotten apples. That is where the real tragedy lies with Clinton. The principle here has no sense of discpline and actually undermines the teachers -- criticizing them and countermanding the discipline the teachers do try an enforce. There is viloence, foul language, and disrespect. I would not recomend this school for your son or daughter or to teach in -- at least not untill the current administration is ousted from power.

Clinton School is a best school. My two son from Clinton went to number one high school in the city. My daughter went to Decatur Classical from this school. The teachers are great, especailly the 5th grade gifted teacher. She used to teach my daughter in 4th grade. If it wasn't for this school, I do not know where my kids would have been ? a parent IFFAT RAHMAN

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
