The bulling has gotten out of hand. My kids complain about the "quite lunch" and the people in charge of recess. Hoping my kids test out, this is not a neighborhood school!!! Teachers are great but it's hard for them to teach when they are being disrespected by some students.

I hate this school. I've been going to this school since kindergarten and I'm in seventh grade now. I have noticed a huge difference since our old principal left and we got ms. U. Children are wildly crazy. The staff is horrible. I think we even have some type of mold coming from the ceiling on the third floor. With our old principal I loved going to school and didnt have to worry about kids calling me names and the principal not doing anything about it. For example there is this one girl in my class who lies,cheats,and scares older and little children. She has been suspended from school about six times and when she does go down to the office she comes back up with candy,chips,or some type of sodam I'm sick of this because its distracting me from my education. I dont know about anyone else but I want a big family and I want to be a psychologist. But I can't learn if I'm always worried if I'm about to get popped upsidey head.

My school is actually a really good school.The teachers really care about us getting to go to college and high school.My math and science teacher talks to me everyday about getting good grades and I need to try harder.We are a diverse school also.I like how we have a new recess thing because when it is raining or when it is going to start snowing badly,we will go inside the auditorium or gym room a play games or even watch kid movies.I believe our school should get a better security guard because she is kind of old and she can also control the kids sometimes but she isn't that good.One time our school had this security guard who was very strict and was very good at his job but I don't know what happened to him.Sayre is a good school.

(PART 2) Yet these teachers are not being seen as so, in fact, many wonderful teachers have come to our school and have been relieved of their job for whatever reasoning. This school is no longer an environment that welcomes you. I am one of the many students who are lucky to get out now.

I would love to give this school a higher rating because the teachers that are still there are wonderful and love their job. Unfortunately the administration there is making it next to impossible to be successful. Teachers are leaving at an alarming rate, some in the middle of the year. There is little staff support. The principal is borderline verbally abusive and rules with fear instead of creating a positive working environment. You can feel the tension from the moment you step foot in the building and get a taste of it once you try to have a conversation with the principal. As you can see from significant decrease in test scores that "leadership" (and I use that turn loosely) from someone without any real classroom experience has a negative effect on the learning environment. She is unable to relate to her staff members and is disconnected from her community. Teachers have left the building in ambulances due to work related stresses. This school was once something great and there is still a staff and community there that can make it wonderful once again. The equation is all there, now if only the negative variable were to be removed, the school could become great once again.

I entered the building today and saw a group of office personnel working diligently. Although, I did not see the principal I did witness a whole collaboration of office personnel really working hard with a smile on their face as I left the office with a resume. The school environment is beautiful inside and outside. I believe students do enjoy going to Sayre School. Sometimes change is good and sometimes we have to give it time for change to be better! What is old is traditional. What is new is progressive. We need traditional & progressive educational needs for the students to succeed. We need a world of educational people including paretns to help guide the students to get there. Remember it takes a village to raise a child.

As a member of this school-and after having visited many CPS schools-I can sincerely state that this school is making it happen. From administration, to staff, parents, community and of course the students, everyone is on board with their learning targets. The magnet cluster focus World Language is embraced by all, diversity is celebrated and the focus is always on instruction. "If you focus on the strengths, the weaknesses will disappear."

It's a shame how so many great teachers were lost this school year and this was not due to budget cuts. My daughter was looking forward to see certain wonderful teachers and was heartbroken to find out that they are no longer with the school. How are test scores supposed to go up if there are these constant changes, instability and classes sizes increasing? I have heard many reports that teachers have chosen to leave because of constant threats and put-downs by the principal. We'll see how the school year goes...

Does anyone have any idea how we can make our school an IB school? I know Sayre has that potential! Our Great tachers and devoted administration can make it possible..Go Sayre!!

I would agree with the parent whose observation is that the new Principal has changed the atmosphere of the school -- praise the Lord, it now INCLUSIVE instead of EXCLUSIVE. I love her open door policy. My 13 year old daughter is enthralled with her. She appreciates that the Principal comes to classrooms to check up on what they are doing. When the Principal sees them in the hallway or on the playground, she asks about their grades and how they are doing. In addition, she is at the school for absolutely everything from early morning until late night. And this is only her first year. If you go into her office you will see how much she cares about our childrens education. She charts them individually on her wall and that of the Vice Principal - ask her to explain it and she will.

I have two children that attend Sayre. I am very disapointed with the new Principal. She has changed the atmosphere of the school. Parent participation used to be encouraged and welcomed. The new Principal is very rude to parents, and she does not like to take advice from anyone. The school has some good teachers and staff, who push the school forward.

Sayre has a wonderful atmosphere where students feel comfortable, confident and supported enough to become superior learners. This is created through a great principal, caring teachers and involved parents.

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.
