My daughter transferred to this neighborhood school in the middle of her Kindergarten year after we moved. Her teacher didn't bother to get to know her before giving her below average scores on her report card (she had been at the school a month). In her old school, my daughter was at top of her class 2 years in a row and was even taking first and second grade classes because she was so advanced. Overall the staff is friendly but they come across as a little ghetto or uncultured. I couldn't wait to get my daughter out of this school. She said the older kids were bullying her and the teachers either didn't know or didn't care. They should separate the older students from the younger ones for their safety and well being.

Not many schools I know have what passes as mandatory after school programs. I'm the foster care case manager of four children attending this school, and all are performing well. Good job Mollison staff. Keep up the good work.

My Children have had the luxury of attending Mollison Elementary for 5 years now! Principal Keenan and staff are excellent! They are VERY in tune with the children and families of Mollison school and have great incentives for the children of Mollison to succeed! I love it there and have recommended 4 other families to send their children, and they love it as well! I have moved very far from the school and will miss the Teachers and staff dearly, but never the less I wouldn't trade in my experience with the school in general for anything! Great Job Mollison!!!!

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.
