The field trip fees are outrageous, my children can't stand the lunch ... there is a couple of teachers I have to vouch for that do make a difference ... Mrs Smith, Mrs Benjamin, Mrs little, ... the students do what they want they're rude and when they stand-up for them selves ... they get in trouble ... I don't think no teacher has the right to put their hands on any child unless they're uncontrollable and are being a hazard to themselves or others, teachers in this school don't respect children they over power the students n if not they make the student's look like liars. This school doesn't even deserve 1 star that's how crooked this school is ... the principal speaks rudely to parents and students....

The principal is horrible! You would think that her main goal would be to see her students succeed but that isn't the case. She does not care and it is very likely that she doesn't even know how many Warren students are failing. The funds provided to the school have been poorly used from what I see as a parent. There are a couple of good teachers at Warren but the majority of them are only there to collect a paycheck.

This is the best school anyone can go to, just get it fixed up a little, get a new paint job, other than that keep the food up nd this school will beat any other to the dirt, not literally!

Warren Elementary has great teachers, but unfortunately they are not supported by their principal or by many parents. There are no extracurricular activities for the students. The principal is about to retire and the only thing that appears to motivate her to do her job is complaints from parents. Terrible leadership by the principal.

Posted September 21, 2004

I think that warren is not a great school. The teachers are not concerned and do not and will not make the time to help the kids who need the extra help. Warren is the worst school to send your kids there and please don't let him or her be a slower learner, because they don't care.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
