My daughter is in the second grade at Arthur Ashe and she has been going their since first grade. Her second grade teacher is excellent. (mrs. Shequoya), she is a hard working dedicated teacher who makes the kids feel they are somebody and teaches them very well.My daughter has learned a lot since she has been in her class and school just started. She is so motivated to do all of her work. As soon as she gets home from school she wants to do work and read and always talking good things about her teacher. When I met her teacher I felt the same way.Teachers like her makes it where you want your child to stay there through 8th grade, because at first I was going to transfer her out, she can stay until we move.

Arthur Ashe Elementary School is a wonderful school mostly because of the hard work and professional/social commitment of it's Principal, Eugene Mason. He is dedicated to keeping the school free from violence/drugs/gangs. One of my son's attended from K-8 and I have three children currently enrolled. We have had no problems. Most of the teachers are motivated and creative and use an imaginal approach to education. I witness teachers arriving early and staying late. The parents could be more supportive of the Principal's efforts as well as their own children. The school is in need of an arts program (music/dance/visual) and more community support.

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.
