Seriously? These reviews were all posted within the few days. Also, they have a major marketing campaign going on there -- sending flyers and what not throughout the neighborhood. These new reviews seem like marketing also. Yes, they do have lots of technology but putting kids on an iPad to keep them quite isn't the same as teaching them something.

My school is amazing! The technology is out of this world! Each grade has iPads and the 7th and 8th graders all have chrome books. They have what they call a blended learning system. The kids use apps for individual instruction. Even the art and music teachers use technology. There is no school in the neighborhood like it!

Trust this days is the most important factor at any school specially to the principal and the staff of the institution, and the best indicator of that are the results of every school individually. Scammon Elementary School is identified by the community as one of the best save places for our kids and the interaction parents-school is an example how leadership should be managed. I am a pruod father of a Scammon student. . .

My grand children attend Scammon, after looking at the Charter schools we chose Scammon. They have computers and technology like no other school around. They have ipads and they use chrome books ! I even saw the music teachers and art teachers using computers in their classes .The teachers are knowledgeable and friendly. I know we made the right choice!

after looking around to charter schools and checking out the activities and programs. i was very disappointed in what the charter schools had versus this school. It has really been improving and unless the parents are active with the kids education you only get what you put in the school. some of the charter schools didnt have gym which was disappointing. this school has been adding more after school programs and the technology has been coming along good. they have a music program that i love, not that many schools have that in elementary schools.

I have being in other schools and the participation of the parents is limited because the principals, but in this school I really appreciate the openness of the principal and the teachers to let parents give ideas and participate freely with the projects and development of our child education. Definitely I recommend to any body bring their kids to this school

Tengo dos estudinates en esta escuela uno en sexto grado y otro en pre-kinder. Los maestros son muy amables estan dispuestos a hacer tiempo para comunicarse con los padres. La directora Mrs. Weaver es muy responsable y dedicada a su trabajo. Esta siempre informada y hasta trata de comunicarse en espanol con los padres que no hablan ingles. Scammon para mi es la mejor escuela y la mas avansada porque tienen iPads para quinto y sexto grado. Graias maestros y a todos el personal por vindar una educacion de 5 estrellas a mis hijos!!!

Greatest school in the area. My youngest daughter graduated from Scammon and has excelled in her career in Criminal Justice. Besides I have worked here for 15 years and have had a wonderful environment to work with. Great, hard working principal and staff. They go above and beyond to help students. It's all about the children here at Scammon.

My school is filled with fantastic teachers that care about students. They go the extra miles by attending professional development during the summer and throughout the school year.

My child is involved at Scammon School and has always been shy and timid. She is in the school chorus and in the Student Council. Thanks to all the teachers who have encouraged her. Her grades have always been excellent. That was not the problem. Socially she is now blossoming into a great young lady. Thanks to all the teachers and administration that cares.

Scammon School is AMAZING! My kids were so excited to go back to school. On the first day all of the teachers were out on the playground in the morning greeting the students. It feels like a family, and they take good care of my kids like their own. They have art and music and gym and computers. My kids dont want to miss school

This is a great school! My kids are actually excited to go back to school! My sixth grader last year was making global connections across his subjects, including art and music. My son got to use an iPad in class daily for multiple subjects, including art. The teachers and principal are very caring and respectful to the students and parents. There are great activities to get the parents involved too!

Wouldn't recommend this school some teachers are great don't get me wrong but the principal is very rude she is so use to yelling at the students she thinks she can yell at parents as well. My sons first year at school and they can't even handle him. So much bad experience in this school it even got to the point were the principal Weiver denied my child some of his lunch stating to him and I quote "they ran out of chips" for the chillie he was eating what school runs out of food. In my eyes Weiver discriminated my child because of behavior problems.... Whatever happend to working together for the best of my child????

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 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.
