I started off at this school back in 4th grade. As of right now, I am a freshman in high school. This school has taught, educated, and trained me to prepare me for the world of high school. The teachers and students have respect for one another. The most favorite thing I remember about the school is being the best of the best. I transferred when I was about to go to eighth grade, and I truly regret the decision. The school has bed faculty, and I hope they adapt to the new environment, teach the kids, and care for them. Owen Scholastic Academy's students, staff, faculty, and administration are BETTER THAN THE BEST OF THE BEST!

The BEST of The BEST..is truly an accurate statement about this school! My child started here im second grade and have done well ever since. He is now a freshman at UIC College Prep and doing well. My eldest graduated from here also and is now a senior at Lindblom Math & Science Academy. I know I owe their success to Owen Academy. My children learned to take their academics seriously while at Owen and that stayed with them ever since. Thank you staff of Owen for making this such a great public school. This is truly an awesome learning environment.

This is an awesome school that focuses on academics and improvements. I love the sense of community at Owen. This school has awesome parent participation and volunteers. The Principal and Assistant principal work well together. The students confess everyday, "We are the BEST of the BEST". You can tell this in the way that they dress. They are held at a higher standard of dress code. There are no sagging pants. The children are taught to carry themselves with pride. The students strive hard and are held at a greater level of expectation. You always feel like family. The male mentorship program here is very strong. I love this school!

This is one great school. My son who has Autism use to attend John C. Dore and they said that he would never learn math, well I am here to tell you that at Owens he has. It only took a few months and he has really started to shine. Also I can now be a parent and not have to go yelling and screaming everyday like at Dore. I don't know how they do it, but keep it up staff, me and my wife love you all!!!!

I am so grateful that my two children attend this schools. I am happy that I found the school for my two kids because it is a great school! Excellent test scores, small class sizes, challenging curriculum,only 240 students in the entire school. The principal and assistant principal work hard to make this school a great school. Also, the teachers are all excellent and keep parents informed about their child progress. Parent participation is out of this world! The parents are always involved in school activities and their children's education. That is so important. The majority of the graduates go on to attend magnet and selective enrollement high schools, such as; Whitney Young, Jones, Lindblom, Payton, Morgan Park IB, CHSAS, Muchin, UIC College Prep, Catholic H.S, ect. I am impressed with this school. The after school program (til' 6pm) is good for working parents. Besides the core subjects;Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science (lab)and History, the students also have weekly, Computer lab, Fine Arts (Music&Art), Library and P.E. Overall, I love this school!

My child doesn't feel comfortable at this school. This is my child first year in chicago public school and I hope that things will get better. I observed that the staff doesn't work together as a community school. Owen school looks like they are going through a numerous change this year. Hofefully the students this year will not have to suffer. The new adminstration does not seem to value education in all areas. I am just wishing the best with my child education this year.

This is my first son first year at this school and I really don't care for the school. The first day of school there was a lot of parents upset with the new uniform dress code. I seen that a lot of the parents do not like the Assist Princpal at this school. There was some kids in the upper grade laughing at two kids because they are in the same grade again. I didn't see anything positive about the school. I will look for a new school as my son will be going to first grade next year.

Great school, with wonderful students and awesome parents. It's a hidden jewel on the southwest side of Chicago. SHHHHHH!!!

I don't like the school at all because the school plays a lot of favorites and doesn't have a open door policy. I have a daughter that is in 6th grade and she will attend another school next year. This school doesn't have a lot of activities and the standards are poor. I'm a parent and I noticed that all the teachers and staff members are afraid to stand up for the school. I was not pleased at all with this school.

This is a good school to attend if you fit in the group of parents that think they are the world. The school needs more activities for all ages inside the school. I see that the same children are always the winers in every event that the school has.

Owen Scholastic has met my expectations for the last 4 years that my eldest daughter has attended. I think the level of Parent Participation sets Owen apart tremendously. There is no time of day that you can visit and not see a parent volunteering with a classroom teacher, the office staff, or some extracurricular activity. Every building has room for improvement but overall Owen is a great school and is among the Best of the Best.

I am a parent of a student in 7th grade & a 2006 graduate now attending st. Ignatius college prep. The quality of academics at owen is 2nd to none. In particular because the owen students score well on state testing because of the great teachers,curriculum and parents involvement in their students education and school activities. We do have a art, music dept, science & computer lab and library. Boys & girls baskeball & ponpom teams. Owen is the greatest school on the sw side of Chicago. Owen is only for you if you are a parent who want to be involved in your childs education. None involved parents need not apply.

I have two children that have attended Owen. My daughter is now in 6th grade and my son graduated last June. The school is just awesome! The teachers and staff really care about the students, and because of this I think they get an excellent education. The teachers really make the children work which brings out the best in them. After graduation most kids go on to some of the top high schools in the city. I also like Owen because you feel like one big family there. From the hot dog days and class trips, to the end of the year carnival. Its a great school!!

I think that this school is great! My child was very low in reading, but now she is up in the high average catagory. This school has great teachers and a great Principal. It has many students on their Beta club (grades 5-8) including my child. This summer of 2004 she will graduate as one of the top ten students of her class!

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.

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 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.
