My child befriend with fantastic kids. At least for girls, they share a lot of their life and concerns with sharp and smart perspectives. Their different paths meet at Nettelhorst and they seem to grow together very well without superfluous pretensions. The social life is well managed by the community they have created. Following Ms Kurland s efforts, is the extraordinary power of teachers who are committed to these kids. The great Ms Rodriguez and Mr Romeo. The power of Math and soccer of Mr Antesberger. The language arts of Holmes. And the great constant solid presence of Mr Soto. This is a place about people and people and people. You got to love 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.

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.
