My daughter went to Schubert from 1st through 5th grade. I was highly impressed by the quality of education she received while at Schubert. The teacher's there are very concerned and give 150% of there talents and gifts. The environment in every classroom is students friendly. She enjoyed her stay there. I would highly recommended this school to any child looking for a great place to learn!

I had my kids at two different schools in chicago, one was a private school and the other a charter. Neither compared to the attention the Schubert gave my kids. The principal cares about the parents as well as the kids. She is avaible when ever you have a concern.

Schubert is an awesome school and has many extras for students. Schubert's teachers go way beyond teaching and get to know each of their students. I highly recommend Schubert School!

I taught at this school from September '07-March '08 as a temporary art teacher, while their regular teacher was on maternity leave. This is an amazing school. Probably one of Chicago's best kept secrets. Schubert maintains a caring, nurturing and collaborative community of learners. The students are wonderful, and know that their work, and their achievements make a difference for everyone, but most importantly for themselves. This is a wonderful place to work.

I'm no parent, but I went to this school for 6 years from kindergarden to 5th grade, and I really enjoyed this school. The teachers care about the students' education as well safety. The extracurricular activities are fun too because they're not only sports but clubs as well.

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.
