Gillespie is a great school! For years I have been seeking help for my child. I have always felt that she needed to be evaluated in order to receive the instruction that she needs. After enrolling her in Gillespie and requesting an evaluation she finally received the support she needed and she is doing well. Thank you Gillespie!!

This school has some of the most wonderful technology that I have ever seen! The students are using the technology in their classrooms and they love it!

Gillespie is a great school thus far very pleased with the staff administration to the teachers. My son is currently in Pre-K full time and he is receiving a quality education wit the advance technology, hands on activities, reinforcement of proper behavior, and constant encouragement, and I love the communication between teachers and parents. I do see majority of staff encouraging good behavior and keeping the kids safe before, during, and after school with helping children stay away from various public establishments, helping them cross the streets safely, fun and encouraging activities throughout the month. I was surprised at the parent turnout. Great job to principal willis and the Pre K teachers Ms. Brothers and Cooperwood. Adminstration staff Ms. Sanders and the other lady (forgot her name).

I love Gillespie School. One of the reasons I was comfortable moving my family to this area is because I heard a lot of good things about what was going at Gillespie. The teachers are very caring and there are lots of programs after-school and on the weekends to keep the kids in a constant state of learning while having fun.

Excellent neighborhood school with an emphasis on STEM. Teachers, principal and staff are caring and concerned. Lots of extracurricular activities enhance the education process.

My son recently transferred to gillespie from a so called "good" school. After getting adjusted to the new surroundings, his grades and behavior greatly improved and he was one grade shy from being included on the honor roll. Gillespie does a lot with the limited funds that they receive and the teaching staff seems patient and dedicated. I would recommend gillespie to anyone looking for a school for their children.

Gillespie has been a great school for my two girls so far. they're learning experiences are greatly improving as they progress from grade to grade. I hope the teachers continue to perform outstanding work as they always have to further the education of their students for years to come.

Gillespie has been an overall great school for my children, they are learning things that most schools don't teach and as a young parent it is great to see my kids learn about technology and have a chance to learn things that i didn't learn at there age. Gillespie is a wonderful school....

In recent years, Gillespie has improved scholastically. It offers 21st century technology throughout the learning experience with three (3) computer labs and smart boards in every classroom. The school is no longer on probationary status and is making strides everyday. Go by the school and see the new playground. The school sign in front is updated with activities and events happening each day. As a community member, the strides made at Gillespie have been remarkable. Kudos to the teachers, administration and staff for their commitment and accomplishments. Sharon Banks-Pincham, LSC member

Not at all what I expected it to be the curriculum is horrible in that school. The principle fires help and assistants that can handle unruly kids better than she can. My son has not even participated in writing cursive language and he is already in the 8th grade.

Gillespie School is a great school! My daughter is currently in 5th grade. She's been a student there since kindergarten. The principal has started a lot of new programs like ballroom dancing ,chess and technology . The school has won many awards under her leadership and it is now a Technology Magnet School.

My daughter graduated from this school and my son is in Kindergarten there. I do agree that there is plenty of room for improvement.

Posted March 4, 2009

I recently pulled my 2nd & 3rd graders out of this school, the classes were filled with unruly children that the teachers constantly had to tend to which took away from learning and placed the other children behind. When March arrived and it was time to take the ISAT test my third grader was not prepared he had not received the necessary knowledge in the 2nd grade or the 3rd grade (both yrs at Gillespie) test material had not been covered and practice booklets were sent home one week b4 the test my child had never seen 50% of the information within the practice book. This school is terrible, the staff is uncaring. My children are now at a better school but are really behind due to the low quality education received at Gillespie.

I recently pulled my daughter out of this school. she could hardly read and couldn't form a complete sentence, she complained about the teachers not helping her and the cafeteria. also how bad the kids are. how can anybody learn anything in this disaster of a so called school. my child begged me to write something about this school because its so bad.

I am snatching my kids out of this school. I will end up having to homeschool them, which is a direct result of the poor, poor education and experience Gillespie has given my chilkdren. The lunches are supposed to be hot but are always cold and hard ad ver unappetizing, the winter months are cold in the school and the summer months are hot! In the winter my children wore their hats, gloves, and coats in the classroom!!!!!!!! I would rather my children never have had an education than to keep going to this school. Where is the justice for those poor hundreds of children who will still be in attendance at that school? They are the forgotten ones for sure!

My child will not be returning to that disaster of a school next year. It is a shame when a child is constantly pushed through to the next grade and can't even read.

Posted July 12, 2004

Gillespie is not a productive educational facility for any child to attend. My children attended the school for the last time this past term. The classrooms are over crowded and the curriculm is not challenging enough for the students. The staff is very unprofessional and none concerning when it comes to interacting with the parts. Chicago school system is getting worse, and our children are the ones that will be greatly affected by this.

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.
