Hitch is drastically different based on the teacher my child gets. I have already raised 3 grown children. I have one going to Hitch now. In the 4 years my child has been at Hitch we have experienced 2 and only 2 of the most amazing teachers ever~!!! I think many of the teachers are overloaded or burnt out. They should definitely NOT be teaching. They had a very big effect on my childs view of school and education. Not to mention the psychological effect it was having on a young child to deal with teachers who have so many issues~!! I know the classes are large, My classes were the same size! Teachers literally lose it in class and with me as a parent. Advocating for my child became impossible. The teachers took it out on my child IN CLASS!! Actually complaining how dare your parent email me about....My child was afraid. 1 teacher 2 years ago had an impact that was positive. This year there's 2..They motivated my child to succeed. Praised him instead of the, " you cant, you don't, you wont" attitude and words that were repeatedly spoken to my child. Amazing transition when teachers love there job and care! Stress is NO excuse to ruin a child. Mental health evals might help here!

this school is getting lower and lower.Teachers are losing their interest in teaching .Efficiency is gone from school teachers.Kids doesn't want to go to school because of their behavior.

I am not sure where they are getting 20 children per teacher. This school is drastically overcrowded and relief does not seem to be in sight. The teachers are great but the class sizes are outrageous.

Horrible leadership....the principal did nothing when I complained multiple times about teacher neglect and staff issues...My children and I moved out of the neighborhood so I didn't have to send them,,,Trust me folks....there is a reason Hitch has a bad reputation in this neighborhood.

We are new to Hitch, my son just started Kindergarten and we are very pleased. My son loves his new school. I do feel that that a 5 is way to low. I did my research before we started here and I am happy with my decision.

5 are you kidding! My son has attended for 7 years. He is an honor roll student and it is all due to the staff and principal! There are over 14 afterschool activities, tutors available in the morning, open door policy with the principal(Ms. Reese) and a beautiful area for the kids to play. The nearby Catholic school has recess in the street. They don't even have a playground. We have a running track , field and playground area. The curriculum is always changing to enhance the students abilities and I feel very lucky to have my child be a Hitch Husky!

My children have been attending Hitch for most of their school' years. The Hitch family cares for their students. I am impressed with the principle, Ms Reese takes great measures for the continued success of the school. If your child has a chance to attend Hitch that is truly a blessing.

This school is amazing! My children are also testing above average in all subjects. There is a growing sense of community and much of the PTA work feels grass roots because the school had done such a turn around. I am happy with the diversity of children speaking other languages even if it brings down the overall test scores for the school. It is better to be unkown and not overpopulated like some of our neighboring schools.

I have two boys attending this school. I transferred them at the beginning of the school year. At first I was hesitate given that my sons were at a performing art school. But to my surprise the school is great. The teachers are caring, and the principal is excellent. I encounter a situation and the principal follow through to the very end and still made a follow up call to make sure I was ok. The curriculum is wonderful, and very detailed. I can't say enough about the school.

I have a son attending Hitch and I have become more involved with the school and PTA. The staff, Principal and many parents are amazing and always so positive. We all have a common interest and that is the future of our children. Hitch is a great school!

We are so happy at this school. Its funny I spend quite a bit of time out in the community and find no problems with the children from this school at our area parks. However, the children from 2 of our nearby private schools have been causing so much trouble that they recently held a CAPS meeting in our park. The leadership is strong and growing Hitch. In our current economy I am so thankful to have such a great public school & am in agreement that these other families are missing out. My child is testing above average in all subjects. The testing is misleading for this school because of the language barriers with some of the cultural diversity but the academics are great. The PTA is working on a climbing gym!

Like another parent, I too changed to Hitch mid-year from a private school. The principal is so great and involved in the school. My child has the best teacher. There are so many opportunities to get involved in a variety of clubs. After a month, my Kindergarten student started to read. And he was happy to be there from the first day. The standards set here are high and the students know it. Many children in my neighborhood go to private schools and I think they are missing out.

I had my son in a private school and moved him to this school mid year. His teacher is amazing. The principal is great. More neighborhood children are attending each year. I wanted to expose my child to many cultures, it is why we live in the city. However, this is not true if you are in a private school. He has more homework than he did at a private school. His teacher has a masters instead of a bachelors degree. There are musicals, clubs, etc. They are developing a reading garden. They have all kinds of animals in the science lab. There is an open door policy and I have used it frequently. I was concerned about the reputation of the school but found individuals providing opinions did not have actual facts. I am more than happy to have the extra money in my bank account. Great Work Hitch!

My daughter attends pre-k at Hitch. From the time I went to the parents meeting/registration last spring the staff, particularly the principal have exuded a true sense of community and made me and my family feel like welcome members of that community. My daughter's teacher is very current on teaching techniques to help the students learn the basics of reading and math so that they will be better prepared for kindergarten.

The current principal, Ms. Reese, has raised the status of Hitch Elementary tremendously through her dedication to the students and superior leadership skills.

The greatest school school on earth. The principal is a very nice and hard working person. This school should win a prize!!!

Hitch is a wonderful place to be, both as a parent and as a student! My children love going to school each day thanks to the talented teachers who spend much time outside of the classroom preparing so that my children receive an engaging and rigorous curriculum on a daily basis! Not an easy task for the low pay teachers receive! I enjoy being a part of my children's school community and always am welcomed when I come to the school.

Hitch has been a wonderful support for my LD son. I can't imagine why anyone would complain! They are so supportive there - even the principal helps. I have a daughter in 4rth grade too. No disability - but lots of attention and support. Hitch is the best thing that ever happened to us!

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.
