I am also going to disagree with the post from the parent on Feb 3rd. Yes, there have been several retirements or transfers of the principals in the last 5-6 years, but Kellogg's current administrators and teachers are great. All students are cared for and celebrated in the same way. This sounds like sour grapes as if this parents child didn't get an award they wanted. That happens, you can't always be one who is in 1st place or the top students. Kellogg regularly has events for parents. There seems to be something almost every week or every other week. My favorite is the parent/child workshops. I hope they do them at every grade level. The new principal is open to suggestions, she is available to the kids and the parents. Look at the improvements in the school. New floors, painted rooms, building is attractive and the kids are actually using new current technology. I am so glad my children attend Kellogg. Many teacher are posting information on projects online now. It would be nice if daily or weekly assignments could be posted too. However, Kellogg is a wonderful school for a health education experience.

I have to disagree with the previous post because I don't think there is favoritism along racial lines. There are only 10-15 white children in the school total and a handful of Latinos. It seems to me that all the children are loved. Kellogg has an excellent faculty, both regular and special ed, as well as a helpful staff, and their leadership is quite good.

Kellogg school like many other CPS schools is a victim of poor leadership. Imagine, having had 5 different principals over the past 10 years. There is also a tendency to favoritism and it generally falls along racial lines. The same children are honored and rewarded and encouraged. Overall, this school is a big disappointment.

I must agree, with the previous comment, the yelling can be a bit much. I cringe when i hear it. I too feel out of the loop regarding what my child shouldbe doing, and instructions regarding assignments. I however don't blame school, but the board of education. The stress that has been placed on the teachers is enormous. I do like the open door policy, anytime i have had a question, the teachers our principle have always provided the answers i needed.

Overall I think my son's school is OK. My only concern is that teachers sometime appear to be stressed by the way they respond to their students (too much yelling)! Not all children can deal with this yelling even if they are not the one being yelled at. In addition, I think the teachers in the middle school grades could be clearer on their assignment expectation. They should use technology more to communicate with parents via technology (i.e. posting assignments with instructions). The key to student sucess is parent involvement and there are many parents that want their children to succeed but often times projects and assignments are not clear to the parents. If they are posted on-line parents can review the assignment and assist their children as needed. I also think that more parent meetings are needed with the principle to discuss parent concerns. This concerns are not brought up at PTA meetings.

In looking at these reviews, they are very dated. You should solicit newer reviews. True, there were some problems as noted, however the new administration under a new principal has brought many improvements. Our family had three children graduate from Kellogg and all have been very successful, both in the local public high school and in public colleges in Illinois. The selection of three new teachers recently brought good quality to the teaching staff. Teacher adies now escort students down the main street enforcing better behavior and a crack down on addresses has reduced enrollment and eliminated out of district students. I know this well because I serve on the Local School Council and besides attending monthly meetings, I visit the school frequently. Any doubters out there, take a new look at Kellogg.

Kellogg is a positive community. The students have inquiring minds and the teachers work together to enrich the learning environment.

Kellogg Elementary is not what it use to be. After the old principal left this school went downhill. My son went here last year and I'm very disappointed at the favoritism this school shows toward certain students


Posted September 9, 2008

This school has average reading and math scores but its very overcrowded with kids that live outside the neighborhood. If the administration can alleviate the overcrowdedness, I think Kellogg can be an excellent school.

As a former student at Kellogg I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the great impact it had on my life. As a third year college student I can look back and state that without Kellogg I'm not sure I would be where I am today. At Kellogg I recieved excellent immersion into the arts and foreign languages and recieved an education that enabled me to test into Wlater Payton College Prep which is the most selective public high school in Chicago. I was able to skip quite a few of my freshman year classes because of the exceptional education I had recieved at Kellogg. The music program at Kellogg inspired me to participate in the Advanced Orchestra and Jazz Band in High School. The faculty are very engaging and dedicated and I go and visit at least once every time I'm back in town from school. Great school!

I have an 8th grader and a 4th grader at Kellogg School and cannot be happier with the education they are receiving. The administration, faculty and staff are very dedicated people. My 8th grade student is in the process of testing into high schools and I am confident with the education she has received at Kellogg she will have no problem being accepted into a selective enrollment high school. Kellogg is the best kept secret in North Beverly and is a little school with big expectations. Check us out!

Our family did not have a pleasant experience with our eldest son's entry into kindergarten. We did not find the environment very inviting or accommodating for a 5-year-old child entering his first 'big' school. He is now enrolled at a different school.

This school has made excellent improvements in thelast four years with reading achievement higher than at surrounding schools and an attendance rate higher than at other schools. The principal is outstanding and the Local School Council is very cooperative. More schools should be like this!

I have two children at Kellogg in 3rd and 6th grade and they are receiving a top notch education. The literacy program is especially strong and it makes me feel good that while third graders at other schools began learning their multiplication tables this year, my daughter's class learned them LAST year in grade 2. It's a great public school and a jewel in the heart of North Beverly.

My daughter is a seventh grader at Kellogg, and has been there since first grade. We have been very happy with the quality of Kellogg: Excellent teachers (dedicated, skilled and concerned about helping students do their best). Strong principal with a hands-on approach who sets high academic standards. Excellent instruction in French and art. My daughter plays violin, beginning in second grade in the after-school program for primary-grade students. Variety of outside activities and opportunities. Enthusiastic parent involvement. Dedicated and effective Local School Council. State-of-the-art media center. Also like the fact that students wear uniforms! I would strongly encourage my neighbors to consider this great school. S. Engle

As an involved parent of 3 students, an LSC member and PTA board member, I have tremendous respect for Kellogg's teachers and administration. My children are challenged in their academics, broadened with french language from K - 8, a fantastic art teacher and program and an updated Media Center with no book later than 2000. More neighborhood families should take advantage of this great school in their backyard.

Posted January 9, 2007

We moved back to the Beverly area from Indiana last year. Both of us had attended Catholic Schools in the area, but we didn t want the same education for our children. We were a little nervous at first about using Kellogg, because of what we had heard from people in the North Beverly area. Well it turns out, we couldn t be happier. Academically, our children are doing more advanced level work than their friends, who attend at the local private school, i.e., research papers in the third grade! The money we saved on tuition is being used to enrich the children in other ways, like saving for a better private university. Our only regret is that we wish more people from the area would use the school, but we think that is trending up.

Kellogg Elementary is an excellent school. My daughter attended her first year this year for first grade. The teachers are very interactive with the children and welcome parent participation. The principal is very respondent to issues as well.

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.

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.
