Staff should get to know even the baddest students. The staff should behave professionally as role models. The principal has been an important part in the school's possible success. They should promote fun group activities in the classroom. Stop the every hour violence. Teachers should show care towards all students. As hard as that is, they should go through a worthy process of helping the scholars. Behavior is a big problem. Many of the "bad" kids are smart but don't show it due to behavior and the behavioral consequences. The whole point of school is to make every single one of those valued children successful in life. Just because a child has emotional problems, doesn't mean you treat them like dirt. Why does the staff condone 11 year olds fighting over boys or the type of shoes they wear. There should be activities that bring out the beauty in everyone. Schools like this has caused people to go to military charter schools. If public schools would do their duty of having a SAFE, and fun, learning environment, creating a peaceful and happy place for children to get their education, there wouldn't be a need for over the top, judgmental charter schools

It would be better if Spanish speakers were allowed to use any language they want. If a fight breaks, it should be stopped immediately. A staff member shouldn't just sit there and watch for a few minutes then start separating the children. More than half of the students have no motivation or mentors to lead them to success. Regardless of what a child does you never bring their confidence down as if they're worth nothing. Students should practice partner and group sharing of their ideas and opinions. A staff member shouldn't support bullying or peers judging each other.

I agree that the principal is making an effort to better the school for our children. I believe that her and some of the staff cares. There appears to be more teachers out this year making sure the children go home. As for parents complaining, come by and see what your children are doing and how the are behaving let the adminstrative staff & teachers know you are concern with your child's education and there saftey. Form a relationship with the staff not just your child's teacher.So that when yor child is getting out of hand or not . My opionion is that when the staff doesn't think you care that's how they label our children. And as for teachers you must know that you must talk to kids with respect patience and understanding. All children are special, and unique and have different situtations and should be treated as such.

school is going to the dogs. 2nd principal this year. my sons six grade class has had three teachers this year not counting the subs . we need more parents to step up and support our schools and teachers . by doing this we support our kids who in turn will support us . the staff does a great job every time i visit . we must talk to the teachers , security guards , the principal the dean . find out if our kids are given the chance to succeed and if so whether they are taking advantage of that chance. we owe it to them and everybody that came before and after us. and most importantly they owe it to themselves. their education is all they have and thats whats will classify their place in life. an f now determines what avenues you have later. thanx , concerned parent

The teacher display an inability to communicate with the children. They are constantly raising their voice at the children. They have been though several principal this school year. Academically they need a lot of help.

The school has to cope with difficult problems of overcrowding. Most teachers try to help students

I am very happy with the new principal. She is patient, knowledgeable, and seems to be making positive changes at the school. It is clear that she has put the children first. I have talked to the parents in the neighborhood, and they are satisfied that she has great ideas and is making great strides to increase the test scores, attendance, and parent involvement, and reduce discipline problems. The new school year is starting off just great.

The academic programs at this school are standard. The teachers are excellent; they personaify patience, integrity and dedication. Some of the students are disrespectful and disorderly only because there is no firm discipline and consequences from the parents.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 12, 2005

I also agree that the school is overcrowded. I do however have to disagree with some of the parents' comments about the teachers. As parents you have to assume some of the responsibility for your child's failures. Parents should ask themselves how involved are you in your child's education. I do not believe that there is any teacher working at McKay for the money because the pay isn't that great.

This school is way too overcrowded. But there are some very good teachers there. The parents are not cooperative. MOST of the students are not willing to do their work and behave badly. I have almost all of my children attending there(4)and (3)aren't happy attending here. This school needs some real improvements.

I think this school is to overcrowded. The teachers do not care about the student. This is just a job for them. I have a 3rd grader at this school. I heard that she was the best 3rd grade teacher in the school , but i have to find out differently.

The teachers involved in this school do not care about the children. The teachers should be tested yearly. I have a 11 year old currently attending.

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.
