Ugh. So disappointed in this school. There is a clique of wealthy parents who are "rah, rah" about this school, and who are seriously clueless about what is going on in the classrooms because they are so focused on "ballroom dancing!" The culture between the staff and teachers is very dysfunctional, and it is felt throughout the school community. My children received lots of worksheets, few interesting or engaging projects. The discipline is based on fear and intimidation. Disrespectful of families of color or low-income families, not inclusive. I'm shocked, frankly, that there are as many positive reviews as there are here, because that is not what is being talked about between parents at pickup and drop-off.

Stone is a school with a lot of nice activities and dedicated staff. Teachers help the ones in need, but there is not enough time and money to create the programs for students who are above the average.

Stone Academy is a rare treasure in the belabored Chicago Public School system for many reasons. In no particular order, Stone celebrates and represents students from many cultures and ethnicities. Every year the school holds a "Heritage Assembly" that celebrates this diversity. The staff and faculy are highly motivated to help every student succeed, and the parents and families are actively involved in our school. The administration has done an excellent job in educating kids on the risks & dangers of bullying, and bullies simply aren't tolerated at Stone. Being a K-8 school, t's common to see older students helping and playing with the younger ones. To know Stone Academy is to love it!

I hate this school, yet I love it so much. I'm relieved that I finally will graduate in a few weeks, yet I don't want to leave Stone. I was here since kindergarten, so I know everything about this place.

My daughter has been here for 2 years (under new administration and longer day). Overall this school is very solid with many wonderful teachers, but the class sizes are VERY big (32 in 2nd grade) and the rooms are not. The Principal doesn't think this is a big deal -- but many area school have 27 and we have 32. This means less one-on-one time and it's hard for teacher to get around to all the groups. Kids who do well, will do well regardless. Those who struggle will never catch up! Another minor thing that is actually important to kids and "school community" is the lack of cafeteria and the gym is very small. This limits the types of activities that can be offered and open time for kids to interact.

Diverse and kids are respectful of each other and teachers. We've met so many interesting families and appreciate the support of our daughter's teachers who always "have eyes" on her. (Smart but sometimes up to mischief.) The arts program is really wonderful as is Librarian - Ms. Esme ROCKS! Drawbacks are the facilities - school yard is nice, but no cafeteria and tiny old gym. Bathrooms are also safety hazard with exposed pipes -- but I've seen the same or worse in CPS. So many good things in the school and many more yet to come -- JOIN OUR COMMUNITY of LEARNERS!

Previously attending this school, I found that it was great. Unfortunately staff switched. Teachers got put into classes that wasn't their forte, thus degrading the learning experience. Gym was everyone's escape, but we were only offered this two to three times a week, much too little compared to the standard of 45 minutes of exercise per DAY. The school has it's highs and lows, but all in all, it's a good school to go to.


Posted March 18, 2011

My children have attended this school since 2002. The teachers are good but there is no recess for grades 4 through 8th grade. There is also no lunchroom so the children eat there lunch at their desks. They are not allow to move around at this time. There is gym once a week but other than that, the children do not move the entire day. The principal claims there is no time for recess but schools with the exact same day as Stone have recess: Hawthorne, Courtenay, Decatur, Rogers Park are all examples. Also, in the all important 7th grade (7th grade determines what selective enrollment High School they can go to) they have added two programs: "friends" which was about abusive relationships and "Heart" which I have no idea what it is. The school has refused to tell me what these programs are or how many minutes in the week are being taken by these programs. Last year I requested the distribution of minutes, the 7th grade teacher said sure. After 5 emails, 6 phone calls downtown, a meeting with the principal in which she bullied me and tried to give me the CPS distribution of minutes from 1988, I still didn't get them. I filed a FOIA request and received them a month later.

Stone is a great school! The teachers do not slack off when it comes to helping students with work they do not understand. Also,As a former student in the special ed. program,I can say that the school does NOT let their students slack off and use their disability as a crutch. The english/reading prgram in the upoper grades actually makes reading shakesperae FUN. The teachers are imaginative and open-minded,and the topic that we learn and talk about are current and help us see other's point of view. The fine arts program at this school is though the roof,and it gave me tons of options and opened new dorrs for me. Actually,the arts teachers encouraged me so much that i am now going into the vocal music program at Lincoln park. I would DEFIANTLY send my child to this school.

Stone is a school where teachers care about their students and the administration knows each child, but best of all it has a community of parents that pushes for changes that benefit the children.

Stone is committed to its students academic, social and emotional growth. The school's diversity is not only valued but celebrated and used as a teaching tool to create strong future leaders.

It's a school of great diversity and caring. No child goes unnoticed. The pricipal's door is always open, unless she's in a closed-door meeting. And from the first day I encountered it, there's a sense of organized chaos.

i Think This School Has Very Good Kids . They Are very Protective About their Students.

Posted April 16, 2010

We are new to Stone this year and so far I am really pleased. The leadership is superb -- present, hands on, deeply committed. The community is strong. The large gatherings at school events are warm, celebratory, and really positive. There is a great vibe in the school and schoolyard. And inspiring diversity. I think the success in the classroom depends on how the teachers handle differentiated instruction with the kids being at such different places in their academic development. That variable is true everywhere. My child is loving school. I'm grateful for that.

The amount of material covered in Stone's 'short day' gets less and less as the kids get older. 4th and 5th grade teachers complained at the beginning of 2009-2010 that their students didn't know their multiplication tables.

We have a first grader at Stone and have been thrilled with our Stone experience thus far. The Principal and Vice Principal are outstanding and work very well as a team. I can't think of a time that I have been on campus when either the Prin of VP was not present...connecting with students and or parents. The student body is polite and involved in making Stone a great environment for learning and growth. We are amazed at how much our child is learning and the amount of material the teachers are able to cover in a pretty short day. There is also a great Indiana University student teacher program from which a terrific number of bright soon-to-be teachers are working with Stone teachers and students...these student teachers live and participate in the Stone community and bring a great deal of knowledge and excitement to the learning experience.

The teachers are great and the principle is outstanding! It is a very diverse school that reflects the demographics of our neighborhood. The students come from a huge range of social and economic backgrounds and they are among the brightest in the state.

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.

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.

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.
