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.

In 2006 IAMS moved to a new site in a building which has been completely renovated for our program. We have a beautiful auditorium, playground, library, science lab and next year we will have a computer room (presently we have laptops on a roving cart). In addition to academic instruction the children have art, music, gym, library and computer instruction. The dual-language program is still thriving with teachers and parents who are totally committed to the school's mission. The most important thing I can tell parents is to come and check it out for yourselves--I think you will be truly impressed. IAMS may be the only CPS school where every child enrolled is part of the Spanish dual-language program. IAMS has been around for many, many years and they get it!

It used to be one of the best bilingual schools in Chicago; unfortunately some of the staff these days don't care anymore. A school that promotes multicultural respect can't afford such attitude.

The school has gone a wonderful transformation, since its move from the last location. The school has teachers that truly want to be at Inter American. Parents are still active participants at the school. They received a beautiful auditorium and a well thought out play ground. Parents and students had a large input in the New Inter American at LeMoyne Campus. Wonderful school.

I am not a parent at this school: I am an 8th grader at Inter American. I love my school, and I will be very sad to leave it. Actually, I feel like I have already left. Ever since the move to the new building and the hiring of many new teachers, it just doesn't feel the same any more. Now they have torn down the old building and with it all of the my past (It seems like) On a lighter note: I have learned so much from all of my teachers, and it is truly a wonderful gift to be bilingual.

It is true, this school took a blow when we lost our principal of 20 years, half our teachers and 20% of our student population left- and with them, a larger percentage of our parent volunteers. But InterAmerican is hanging in there, continuing all or most of the practices that made it such a great school in the first place. We have energetic new teachers continuing the dual language philosophy. This is a great school, a loving school and welcoming place. If you want your child s language skills to go to a high level in either Spanish or English, if you want to build their self esteem and pride in their heritage, their desire to help their fellow man, this is the school for you. Parents are welcome in the school and are partners in their children's education. And test scores continue to go up every year as well.

Inter-American lost most of its extraordinary program when the principal who guided the school for over 20 yrs, retired last year. She was a beliver in the power of teachers and parents working hand on hand with the administration. Now all of that is becoming history.

Our daughter is enrolled in the pre-k program and so far we are happy with our choice of cps schools. I have some concern as to the level to which she will be prepared for further education but it is too early to judge the school's ability to teach her. Parent involvement is very high at iams. I consider this a plus in many ways (community spirit, easy to monitor performance of the staff, etc) but it can lead to a sense of meddling by certain parents.

I actually was a student at Inter American for four years. I am now a college freshman and I have to say I still miss the school. The teachers are the nicest you will find, and the learning quality is great.Helpful teachers,friendly staff, and great students.The best thing about this school is that it has a great bilingual program.I highly reccomend this school, to anyone.

Only send your child here if you don't care if the english language is the primary language of the usa. I am sick of math homework and assemblies conducted 100% in spanish! this school is a waste of tax dollars.

We could not have found a better school in Chicago, in the country, or even on the planet!!! The teachers at Interamerican are truly the most dedicated and amazing I have ever seen. The school was founded by parents who wanted to create something new, different and wonderful for their children, and they did. Interamerican offers something no other school in the city offers -- a curriculum of the study of the Americas. It is also a dual language program, so the children not only learn a wonderful social studies curriculum of things about the original peoples of the Americas, but they learn it in Spanish!!! Additionally there is a strong sense of teaching children to be socially conscious and aware of what has happened in history, what goes on in the world today, and how they can apply socially conscious values to their everyday lives. Viva Interamericana!!! Long live Interamerican!!!

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.
