The principal at this school is a joke the only thing he cares about is himself. He will tell parents what they wanna hear but he will not follow through with anything he says!!

Some of the teacher's at this school really care about the students but, there are some teachers that are just there just to have a job. A couple of the teachers and staff are very rude to the parents and not very welcoming. They have a "You are not important " attitude. I any thinking of taking my children out of this school because I feel this school has a long way to go to get to where they should be. I am not happy with the school period. They have a new principal, he seems to be very nice. He has his work cut out for him. The office staff is nice but they need to recruit more new teacher and get rid of the teachers who are not intereted in the children and there education. Many of the the teachers here just want to make themselves look good. They don't seem to really care for the children. The teachers don't realize that hey set the mood on how the children will be in school. Not all teachers there have a negative attitude but many do and they wonder why the kids are so rude and disrespectful. Good Luck to the New Principal . GET TEACHERS WHO CARE ABOUT ALL OF THEIR STUDENTS!!! LOSE THE ONES WHO DON'T CARE!!

My daughter just started Pre -school a few days ago and so far i like this school a lot. The teachers keep you well informed and they also have a direct line. They have a good class size, they have two teachers for about fifteen students. The teachers answered all my questions and concerns. The parents are also very friendly.

I have two grndchildren in Joseph Lovet Elementary School, and they love it. They both has excelled since day one. The faculty as well as the principal has great compassion, and want nothing but the best for every student there. I give Mrs. Holland and her staff rave reviews. Go to the head of the class Joseph Lovett, all the way to the Zenith...

I teach at Steinmetz. My freshmen who graduated from Lovett are some of my best readers, thanks to their 6th grade teacher Ms. Farrow.

As a parent of a 4th and 7th grader who have attended this school their entire academic career, i am not happy at all. Class sizes are entirely too large for teachers to teach students effectively and it comes off as if the teachers don't really care much. The problem is the over crowding. Teachers simply don't have the time to devote to each student so that they learn. My 7th grader went from being an honor roll student to failing a grade and thereafter just being passed along for the past 3 years. This year I'll be transferrring them to a private school where hopefully we can undo some of the damage that has been done. Board of Ed needs to work on taking down the boundaries that limit parents to one or two choices of schools.

I Love the Principle's compasion involving the students.

This is my daughter's first year at this school, and I am not a happy parent. My child if failing after 30 weeks of school and I have reached out to the teacher to see what can be done to improve. I have been up to the school every week for the past 3 months and the after school program is a joke. If it worked my child wouldn't still be failing. I think Arnie needs to lean on this school for change.

This school has some really good teachers but the class sizes are too big. The averages here are not accurate and my son is in a first grade class of 37. I know that both first grades have at least 37 and the second grade classes are overcrowded too. I am looking to take my child out because the school is not doing anything about the class size problem and the teachers can only do so much to help each kid and I want my child to get the best education he can.

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.
