I have been so impressed with the teachers, staff and principal of this school. Everyone here cares about the achievement and future of the students. It is a first-class school. The rising test scores are show to this. I always feel welcome here.


Posted January 9, 2012

This school always smells like a public urinal and the staff is so very unprofessional taking care of personal business while parents gather around the office and no one has the decensy to even ask how they can help overall the worse school I have had the displeasure of ever walking into

Dett is a fantastic school that really cares about its students. The prinicpal, Ms. Bonner, treats her students and parents of students like they are extended family. The school makes it easy to get involved in your child's education. Definitely the BEST school in Chicago!

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.
