When you walk in Coles daliy school only then will you be able to understand the involvement of making a school what it should be like. It takes a lot to run a school.Cooperation and unity are key. It is about the students. We must work together to support each other at all cost. We must take emotions out of the picture even thou this is very hard to do. My weakness could be your strength .Do it right, on time. Push push, push. Look at your data and follow up follow up. record results Administration is about the best They will support you every step if it is sound and right. Give credit for a job unsung. Coles has come a long ways with 360 improvement.

This school is awesome!!! I would highly recommend that you send your child to Coles Elementary Language Academy. They have an extensive selection in extracurricular activities. They have a large range of students with an amazing education. There are literally TONS of kids on the B honoral and a good amount of kids on the A honoral. This school will give your child the best education possible while giving your child opportunities to find what they have an interest in. Coles also has a school uniform store were you can buy and customize your own clothes. Your child will love this school. Send them here

I am a parent who is proud to say my children attend Coles, this was not the case under the former administration. When I have a concern or question no matter how small it is I am listened to and the concern or question is typically addressed within the course of one school day. When I come into the school no matter what the reason I am shown repect and treated as if I am wanted there, which was something I did not feel prior to this administration. The administration as well as the teacher's make themselves available through in person contact, note's (blue folder), email, telephone and in some cases even through cell phone's. I feel as if the the staff want's to build a bridge to communicate with parent's not a wall. The school had started many after school program's and activities that my children enjoy.

The adminstration team at Coles is the most progressive adminstration team you will find in the area. Their goal is to see that the students that leave Coles not only meet educational standards but have exposure to various interest which support life long learning and growth.

My child has been a student at Coles since the third grade, and now he is graduating. Since Mr. Dase has been here there is tremendous improvement in atmosphere, student and parent activitites, moral in students, learning, abilities, role models. He has always kept the parents in the loop about their children and what's going on in the system. Before Mr. Dase arrived this school was in turmoil. I have seen the improvement every time I come here and walk in the building.

Edward Coles Language Academy is an excellent school. During this school year alone is has exceeding teaching standards. My daughter, an 8th grader, has achieved many accolades. With the guidance and drive the teachers have encourage her to do her best. Her achievements this year, 2nd Place at the District Science Fair for her Science Project, 3rd place at the District in an Essay Writing Competition, and 1st Place at the District in the Math Competition, She is going to compete in the City Math Competition. She also competed in the Mayor Daley's Battle of the Books group competition resulting in 2nd Place. Thanks Edward Coles for all that you have inspired my daughter to achieve, a very grateful mother

I am a community representative. I have observed two young brothers, Mr. Estees and Mr. Daze spend long hours after schol trying to make a difference to the school and community. I believe with their drive and commitment Cole will be one of the best!

We are trying to collaborate and work together for the benefit of the students.

I have told my children that they have 55 more days left at Coles school. I plan to transfer my children out of Coles and have them bus to a charter school. I can not deal with the attitudes from majority of the staff. My children rarley have homework and assignments are graded when the teachers feel ready to grade them.

Coles is a true diamond in this community that has a sparkle and contiues to get brighter by the day...When crossing the threshold one can feel the componets that comprise a quality educational institution...I truly see coles living up to its name and being a model for others locally and nation wide.

Coles is a work in progress. Since the leadership has changed, the climate and culture of the school is changing, for the better. Parents must become more involved in their child's education because we as teachers can not do it alone. I believe if we ALL work together for the children, Coles will go far!

From what I have seen Coles is in excellent hands and is heading in the right direction. The administration and teachers are dedicated to the students. Parents, can we all come together to get on board as well so that we can take part in having our children receive a quality education? They can't do it without us and I don't want to be left behind!


Posted March 9, 2008

Yhanks to new leadership coles school has improved in areas from safety, disipline, and most of all education. This school year students and some of the staff are working together. My only hang up is that some teachers curse at, and belittle our children. Schools are quick to disipline the student, but staff needs to be disipline as well. Mr. Dase (principal) and Mr. Estees (asst. Principal) keep up the good work!! Change don't come over night.

I am disappointed in Coles Language Academy. My child has been a student of this school since mid-year of 3rd grade. She is now in 6th grade, and I am still disappointed. The teachers are hard to meet with, no one in the office seem to know what is going on internally. I have seen nothing but chaos. I am desperately looking for other alternatives. My child is a gifted student that is often bored in class. Unless the principal comes up with a plan on how to gain control of the school and its academics, I do not see this school around much longer.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

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.

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.
