I have never been as disappointed with a school as I am with Nettelhorst. My daughter and I moved into this neighbourhood specifically for this school. It had great ratings and reviews so we went in with the highest hopes and boy have we been let down. Instead of spending their time and money on things that really matter, teaching the children, they chose to use their resources to manipulate the media to try and attract people who can donate more money to the school. With the exception of two teachers my daughter would have fell through the cracks academically. I've made multiple attempts to meet with the principal throughout the three years we've been here and she refuses to call or email back. When I finally went into the office and demanded to see her I was told I had to make an appointment first by emailing her. However she doesn't answer her emails so its a total catch 22. They claim to be a performing arts school, however they don't offer band or chorus. All after-school activities will cost you about $300 for a six week period. I thought this school cared about teaching children in a nurturing environment but I was wrong. I recommend you look elsewhere.

There is so much about Nettelhorst that I love. My daughter has attended for 7 years and we have been proud to do our part to work towards the school's transformation. She has loved all of her teachers and has always been very successful academically. The only complaint I have is that I feel the school is losing the diversity and spirit that attracted us years ago. At assemblies the parents of young children stand in front of the auditorium, so they can get photos of their kids while blocking the rest of us, and the ones who don't leave as soon as their child performs speak to one another loudly as the older kids perform. I hope, as the school continues to improve, that parents realize that in order to truly be a "community school," all members need to be shown respect, not just the white affluent families.

My daughter loves this school. We couldn't be happier with her progress this year. She is in K and is reading and writing.

For Kindergarten and first grades the classwork has been well organized. From the art class, I have only seen one piece of artwork from a day of class in nearly two years of our child attending. Jane's Place programs for sometimes free but mostly paid after school classes are fantastic for working parents. Also, a Happy Start program is helpful to working parents. I think the school would benefit greatly from something as simple as having kids practice and become proficient with doing basic and fast math calculations using worksheets and basic reading and writing exercises. The school does provide more abstract thinking but some more focus on the basics at school and for homework would be in order to improve academic skills.

Classes are taught with a view toward the world and how to contribute to it in the form of good citizenry and stewardship.

It is a vibrant school with colorful murals on the walls, an active parent population, and an emphasis on the arts with music, art, and dance classes (but also an emphasis on math and science) and Jane's place classes being taught by local drama, art and music schools and teachers after school ranging from drama, clay art classes, mad science, and fairy tale ballet.

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.
