Love love Garvy! My child has made wonderful friends, the teachers and administration are caring and invested in the school. We have been here for 4 years. My son looks forward to going to school everyday. There is a strong commitment by a wonderful group of parents to safety, fundraising and social activities. This school and friendships from it is the only reason we consider NOT leaving the city.

My child has gone to this school for 6 years until i decided that I did not want him to be in this environment. I think i waited to long. The teachers don't make any special relationships with their students and do not do anything about bullying, NOTHING. My child was bullied, he kept telling the teachers but they didnt do anything. They would just nod and wouldn't say anything to the bully. When my child told me this i was furious. I told the principal and the teachers said that they didnt know anything about the bullying that was going on. It was ridiculous. Don't send your child here, I regret not sending my child to Oriole or any other school but Garvy.

Garvy is a terrific school. The staff is friendly and the student's teachers are very helpful and understanding. The PTA is incredibly generous. The school has many extra curricular activities that help the students get a broader education. Personally, I love Garvy! Everyone is so kind that they are like a family there. It's just such a bright school that enlightens ones spirits and provides a terrific education. I suggest Garvy because it doesn't get better than this.

John W. Garvy is a GREAT school. The principal has old fashion methods and very stress out last year. She lets out the children for recess in 30 degrees Fahrenheit when it will be winter. Winter temperatures like 30 degrees Fahrenheit is too cold for kids/students. All year round, there should be a study hall for students who need it during recess. The teacher assistants and volunteers can watch the students in study hall. Students can study better and catch up on homework too.

Garvy is my school. I love John W. Garvy. The staff is friendly and forgiving. They work hard, but no one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes during their lifetime. Who is actually perfect?No one. We all need to be humble and learn from our mistakes. I had great experiences from their staff and volunteers.

I needed to move to this area and begrudgingly sent my kids to Garvy, thinking it was, at best, an average school. I was pleasantly surprised at what a great school it is! The principal is great with the kids, the teachers are pretty intelligent and caring, support staff is very friendly, and all students are really pretty fantastic! (Bullying is minimal at most.) The school hasn't gotten the best "grade" in the state but, honestly, they have really challenged my children. I don't mind if they don't focus entirely on grades because my children have a great work/life balance. Although parent participation overall is pretty low, the parents that do participate have done an A-MA-ZING job! If you're thinking of sending your children to Garvy, your children will love it! My 8-yo wants me to add "I love Garvy!"

I have 2 kids going to Garvy and we love this school. They have excellent teachers and challenging academic program, plus they still have time to always do something fun. There is always something going on at school, that makes my kids look forward to waking up in the morning and going there. We would not change in for any 10 out of 10 school.

Garvy,I thought was a good school,however,my child has ADD and is on a 504 plan and they don't accommodate him. This will be my child's last year at this school because they don't help/care unless your child is a normal straight A student.

The only thing I have to say is that I'm glad I don't go here anymore.

I am very impressed with what the PTA donates to the school and to the teachers. The administration works well with parents to keep them in the loop and are great with the kids. My family is happy here and I feel blessed that my kids go to this school.

With one child attending Garvy and one that graduated a few years ago I have seen a decline in the quality of teaching. Garvy needs to work on the upper grades and offer all the children the same quality education. Garvy has an accelerated program and children are picked purely on test score not report card grades. The difference in expectation and quality of teaching for the two groups is unacceptable and needs to be fixed. Garvy will be getting an addition soon which will help will the overcrowding. Garvy is a very middle of the road school with room for improvement. The principal does the best she can with what she s given but needs to be more in touch with what goes on in the classrooms.

Garvy school is run by the most amazing group of administrators and teachers. It is a large crowded school but somehow they make you feel like your kids is the most important. I am so proud to send my children to Garvy and I know they will benefit from it. Of course we are so excited for the much needed addition and green space!

We moved to this neighborhood so that our daughter could attend Garvy, I am excited about the new addition and am looking forward to being involved in my daughters education!

I love Garvy Elementary because of the excellent staff - teachers and administrators. Despite the obstacles, like overcrowding, everyone works together to provide a great learning experience for the students. Whether your child needs extra help or extra challenges, the teachers find a way to make sure each child gets exactly what they need. They also provide 'non-academic support' which is so crucial during elementary school. When the teachers receive adequate space with the upcoming addition, it will only get better!

I love Garvy School, because my children are so happy there!! They love their teachers,friends,subjects etc. The Teachers /Principals are always willing to help. They have a great PTA. Garvy is very informative, and has many family functions/outings. Garvy is striving because of great families/friends who care about our school.

Garvy has an amazing group of teachers,staff and administrators. Despite the overcrowding, the academic success of our students is a testament to our teachers and parents. The new addition and green space is going to be great!

Despite over crowding and growing yearly census are children still get educated and 1 on 1 attention. They have done a remarkable job!!

My family has a long history at Garvy. In fact, my 82 year-old monther in law went to Garvy. We are proud of our connection with Garvy school and I hope that my grandchildren will attend Garvy. Mrs. McGlade and most of the teachers at Garvy have a 'students first' attitude and it shows. We are a neighborhood school with neighborhood pride. Keep up the good work!!

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.
