Mrs. Espinoza is a was the kindest and most helpful human being. When I was looking for a little extra help with my daughter she was amazing in working with us and the Lighthouse vision clinic. I would love to thank Mr. Harris for helping my daughter so much and Mr. G for being the greatest computer teacher. All these teachers deserve the credit for all their hard work and dedication with so much passion for what they do on a daily basis!

During the 2001-2003 school year semesters, I attended Lloyd Elementary as a 4th and 5th grader. Now, I am 20 years old and I still recall the academic programs this school provided for the students. As a whole, this school was viewed to me as a social gathering rather than an academic enhancer. I enjoyed meeting the friends I did, but as a school, I did not learn much. It was only after I moved out of that area that I was able to read, write, and learn in a profound manner. Students who attend in your children's school truly does affect the way they learn. I suggest you give your children an extra helping hand and enroll them in an after school program or a tutor. Students learn better if they know they are good at it!

I feel the principal at this school DOES NOT treat the staff nor the parents with any respect.

Before this new principal this school was not so bad but now the school is going down because the principal changed almost all teachers when he came he closed doors for parents because he tought the parents we weren't necesaries for school.but parents did not care what he did and spoke with Lsc who revoqued what trincipal said.

This used to be a better school, but the principal changed a few years ago. Now there is a new principal and he has been mean to the good teachers and community. This man is from New York and knows nothing about Chicago or the students here. He is arrogant and does not care about the kids. He speaks some Spanish, but he still doesn't know how to relate to the families and people in the neighborhood. Now the good experienced teachers all leaving. The teachers that are left are not happy. The principal hired all new teachers who do not know anything about the neighborhood or the people in the community. And the kids test scores are going down too. The principal is a poor leader. He is never in the office when you want to speak to him. He has the secretary talk to you instead. The LSC and CPS needs to get rid of this principal. This school needs a better principal so it can improve. Right now it is below average because of him.

Ms. Delapena & Ms. Mendez are patient, kind and understanding to their students' needs. In the short amount of time I have know them there has been a lot of involvement with the kids and much improvement. I look forward to the years to come. The only downside to the school is the involvement of the principal, and office staff. They don't have the desire to be in the school when they are needed. When I have a question that needs to be answer they seem to give me the run around they never return my calls let alone give me resoultion.I hope that they will continue their efforts in maintaining academic excellence, which seems to be overlooked in my opinion.

I have a daughter who is in the third grade.She has attended Lloyd since kdg & although there are teachers who truly are dedicated to what they do the majority are there just for a paycheck , starting with the principal who is never able to help out anyone.I've been trying since June to get my daughter placed back in the billingual program & so far nothing. I've called the office several times.Sometimes the phone is not answered ,other times I've left messages & nobody ever calls me back , I've even taken time off from work to go there, only to be told that the person who can help me out is in a meeting & that they're unsure of when she will be available.The principal who im sure can help me claims she cannot do anything.I am very disgusted with Lloyd.

Although my son is only in Pre-k., My husband and I are very happy with his teacher Ms. Sheela and her assistant Ms. Rosita. They are very patient with the children. It's not easy to work with 17 four year old children. My son is very happy, he loves school, and each day he tells me what he has learned. They also inform the parents as to what they are working on, and they ask their assistant to continue with current skills they are teaching as home. I have also attended the meetings which are held once a month to assist parents in helping their children, as well as improving themselves as parents and educating them on the choices they have to improve themselves in the work field.

Lloyd school is staff with teachers who are very dedicated. Though teachers are only paid until 2:30 if one drives around the school's parking lot one will notice that teachers still stay after 5pm without pay. Teacher's here take their job seriously and commit to do whatever they can to enhance student learning. Unfortunatly, the Chicago public school system labels many of these teachers as unqualified because they have either not taken or passed a specific test that is required to take. (teacher's are being let go) Parents are being confused my this message and judge good teachers. If teachers are allowed to demonstrate their creativity instead of over loading them with tedious tasks, students will go above and beyond. Yes, teachers are also going to school to learn new techniques to improve their teaching skills. They go to workshops when students have a half day or schools are closed.

I think Lloyd is a pretty good school. I have two kids at Lloyd and I can say that the teachers are pretty good we have to think that the teachers do they part in school and it is our resposability as parents to do our part at home I think that this may help our kids we both parents and teacher should work together. We as parents should visit the school and, why don't you volunteer at school so that you can check the enviorment of Lloyd. I think Lloyd is a good school.

I think that Lloyd school is not a very good school. The principal is not doing a good job. The school scores are low due to the teaching the teachers are give to our kids. Some teacher are doing their jobs but others are not! The staff at Lloyd school are afraid to speak what's on their mine because of the principal. The principal care to much about the uniform and the kids behavior and trying to teach the spanish then their education. I think they should have more meeting in the evening then in the morning. Their are parents that would love to attend meetings but they work.

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.
