with the principal being there 4 years and all the activities going on, you would think they would be a level 1 school by now...

School does not take the time to care about the children as much as it cares for the $. The school is not well ran. I would love to talk to the superintendent about how this school is.Lice is a consent in this school as well. And The principal Gloria Espinoza prefers the Spanish parents over anyone else, and turns her nose down at non Hispanics. The Vice principal mr Solowski is this best ever!

Greene has a new principal this year that I don't know because I transfered my child out for the 2007-08 school year. She wasn't advancing and stagnating in 5th grade. The old principal wouldn't listen to parents complaints about her staff. Most were ok but there were exceptions and unfortunetly nothing would be done about those that didn't perform up to standards. we pulled out to send our child to a private school down the block and found how backed up in Math and Reading our child is this school year. With a new principal you never know what will change or not so sorry that I don't have that info. As far as safety goes, it was outstanding.

My child is in kindergarten and I have been disappointed in the 2 months that he has been at Greene, so far. They don't send home information, I don't get the impression that parent involvement is encouraged and there seems to be a revolving door of teachers- every few weeks there is a new one- very discouraging.

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.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
