It feels like the Spanish and English dominant groups self-select / don't fully socialize, and that the same 10 parent people do everything at the school in terms of cheerleading, planning school-wide events, getting grants, etc. I agree 100%.

My child is a student at this school. I have been underwhelmed by the teacher, by an inadequate responses from the acting principal and acting vice principal (to concerns expressed by parents), by poorly executed special events / field trips, and by the lack of community amongst families. It feels like the Spanish and English dominant groups self-select / don't fully socialize, and that the same 10 parent people do everything at the school in terms of cheerleading, planning school-wide events, getting grants, etc. Other families have raved about the school, but I haven't seen much to rave about. Also I have some concerns about the school being a bit rowdy (students not respectful) and not following CPS discipline rules.

And I forgot to mention that I feel like my daughter was not prepared well enough by IAMS for the level of competence in Spanish reading and writing that was expected by her new school. My second daughter has only attended the new school and is now reading and writing in Spanish in first grade--pretty good for a completely English dominant child!

My son has been attending this school for 2 years now and he loves it there. I am very satisfied with the variety of programs offered there and the multicultural atmosphere is wonderful for our children! I could not ask for anything more from a school that teaches our children about different races and equality.

Great school. This is my 2nd year, there's no violence or crime. No gangs, best school I've seen.

Inter-american is an excellent school. My daughter is in seventh grade now and is doing exceptionally well. I give all the credit not only to her hard work but to the teachers who encourage in her ability to do so. She has been attending Inter-american since third grade and each year is better than the other. Thanks to the teachers who care for each and every student they have had.

Inter american is an amazing school. I am an 8th grader who goes there. For example in 8th grade they prepare us for high school math. It is a diverse cultural school.

My son graduated recently in this school. For me has been the finest education center my boy has ever attended. I am grateful to his teachers for caring about him.

This is my child's first year in IAMS and I could not be happier. She came from Telpochcalli where she attended K-4th. She learned more spanish in this one year than she did the 5 years at Telpochcalli which is the reason I put her there in the first school. I am really happy with the overall curriculum of IAMS as well as the outstanding parent involvement. It is so important that we, as parents, involve ourselves in our children's education because that means alot to a child. I just came back from my daughter's 5th grade trip where I was able to get to know other kids as well as other parents. Thanks IAMS for hanging in there despite all the changes they recently went through.

My daughter is graduating this year from Interamerican. She has recieved a good bilingual education that will help her in the years to come. Considering the tranformation of the school and its leadership my daugher has been given great encouragement by her teachers. Mrs. Bruno, Ms. Larier keep up the good work. Your students may not tell you but they absolutely adore you. I am confident the skill aquired at Interamerican will only enchance her future education.

i love this school. the bilingual program is amazing and has helped my child learn spanish and learn to love her culture.

I took the time to read all of the reviews that were given about IAMS, and I must admit that they all have some truth in them. IAMS is definitely not a perfect school; however, it is a school that is constantly seeking improvement. Not to meet the needs of the teachers or those of the parents, but to meet the needs of the changing population of students that demand more day by day. If you would sit from the sidelines and watch a day at this school, you would be amazed to see a student body who rarely misbehaves, motivated teachers that are continuously seeking to improve the curriculum, but most of all a group of involved parents (sometimes too involved) that support the school's mission at all cause. You would see a caring environment that respects all cultures but most of all embraces its own.

Inter-American can be a better school, if preparation became number 1. Here it is 1 1/2 weeks before school starts and no School Supply List. Everything is on sale now.

I love Inter-American. Great curriculum, great teachers, and staff. The parent involvement at this school is phenomenal. My son has been attending IAMS since pre-school and I am very impressed at his continued progress both academically and socially. IAMS Rocks!

I am a former student of inter american magnet school (this was my last year). well, I hated moving into a new building, and I disliked some the new staff, but I love the fact that we now have more room. like most schools, I.A.M.S., was not perfect and there's some things that still need to be worked on. but overall, it was a good learning experience. it was more of a small private environment, so I got to know my peers really well. the teachers would provide individual attention for those who needed it and I got into the highschool of my choice, northside college prep. so I owe alot to inter american. I am proud to graduate from this school being a bilingual student. -

I used to be a student at inter american magnet school. And i have to say it has been one of the best schools I have ever been to. The teachers there are great with their students they make sure they understand the work.


Posted June 30, 2007

IAMS has had two consecutive years(2006 & 2007) of the highest test score gains in the history of the school. We are at 85% in all areas. Over half of the 8th graders were accepted into the best selective high schools in the city. The school has contracted Dr. Sonia Soltero, a lead researcher in dual language to help teachers this summer strengthen the program. Two experienced lead teachers will be released to monitor and plan staff development for all teachers in the school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 26, 2007

The long honored dual language program is GONE. More veteran teachers and students are leaving and IAMS is threatened with staff cuts that may drive classroom sizes up to 30 in certain grades. The acting principal must recruit teachers and students. She must maintain the class make-up of 50% Spanish-dominant and 50% english dominant speakers to maintain the necessary language proficiency that makes dual language work. The school may have a new building with nice art and mosaics but the core of the school, the dual language program is gone. Those staying are mostly new (teachers and admin.) and they don't get it.

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 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.
