i went there from kindergarten to 8th grade. (Graduated in 1958). I just found this website. This school gave me a great education. I am a graduate of the University of Illinois with a Master's degree plus and years in research. I now teach Marine Biology. Thank you Nobel.

I have been attending this school since kindergarten. Honestly, I wouldn't says it's a great school. Most teachers there are great, although, The extracurricular activities here are great. I'm part of the orchestra and I think it's great. I would like to see sports programs at the school though. I don't think we have any sports teams! The classrooms also have too many students!

I'm in 7th grade and I went to this school since I was in kindergarden. I moved to Addison, Illnios because my parents wanted to be closer to there jobs. The school was the best. I like that school better then the one I'm in. Over there its more fun not like in the suburbs. I hope I could go back soon and visit my old friends and teachers.

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.
