This school has been my children's neighborhood school for over the past 10 years. I am very pleased with the education my children have received and continue to receive at this school. Most teachers challenge the students to strive to their full potential, the ones that don't can be addressed by the parent/guardian, and if that fails then you have to go up in the chain of command until the problem gets resolved. There are those teachers as well that go above and beyond and contact parents when the children are not thriving academically or when they are improving and doing well. Education and support begins in the home and continues throughout the student's life, in which both home and school combine forces to ensure their success. Every time I have to move I find housing within the neighborhood to ensure my children's attendance here at Armstrong. Teachers teach academics and parents are the parents, parents teach discipline and enforce it, we cant expect the teachers to be their parent to over 25+ kids or more because some grade levels change classes. If you are unsatisfied with the school in anyway, then get involved as a parent within the school.

I have two daughters at Armstrong for the past 3 years. The curriculum is more challanging than a private school they were in pryor to this school. They do have advanced placement for children because both of my girls are in it and are doing well. There has never been a problem of communication with the teachers, we've called them on occasion and were satisfied with the promptness of return call or they answered on the spot. The problems are more with the students behavior and their foul language and lack of doing assignments. My girls often complain about their classmates use of foul language and the disruption of class. These are more a parenting issue, than the teachers, but maybe a more strict disciplinary code is necessary. A lot of kids get daily detention and that doesn't seem to help curb behavior. It's very unfortunate, especially for the teachers and the students who do not have these disciplinary problems. Also because these disciplinary issues, student activities are cancelled, like dances, class holiday parties etc. which only actually punish the "good" kids. The problem is lack of discipline both in school and at home. The disciplinary action needs to be more strict.

I have my daughter at Armstrong Elementary school, 4 years in a row now. I would not change that at all. Since her pre-k days, every year she's had the most amazing teachers. From registration days, which go by smoothly, to the end of the school year, every day has been pleasant. The staff is always helpful. But I can't stress enough how happy I have been with ALL her teachers. My son will be e rolling into Armstrong next year as well.

Armstrong is an international School im a student at Armstrong currently a 6Th grader and the teachers are determined to go to work and teach above and beyond what they have to! Take Ur Kids There I Promise UR Child will ave a wonderful Education My Name Is Lencho Chabis im in the 6th grade in room 101

Both of my kids went here for a while and I am a little shocked at the comments. My daughter went here for two years and my son went for one. I did have a problem with ONE teacher but all the others were outstanding! Mrs. Bergstrom and Mrs. Bushonville were AMAZING. I transferred my kids for a few reasons: 1. The administration was weak 2. There was nothing set up for the more advanced students (My daughter was in the second grade ready for more challenging math while there were kids in her class who couldn't add their two's. The teacher had to take it upon herself to give my child more challenging work on the side. It was TOO MUCH for the teachers) 3. I hate to admit it but we also left because some of the kids and parents had issues with racism. My son (Pre-K) would come home and tell me some of the kids wouldn't play with him because he was black. The older kids were also a concern for me. When I would go to pick my kids up, I would hear them using vulgar language and talking about inappropriate things. None of this had anything to do with the teachers. The school would greatly benefit from more parent involvement, better discipline and a stronger administration.

My daughter attended this school from Pre-Kindergarten until 2nd grade. Our experiences at this school were not so pleasant. It seems as if the older the children get, the less respect & attention they achieve from teachers & faculty. The children here are mostly minorities & have trouble understanding & speaking English. The teachers are not attentive & lack any sort of support or communication with parents. They are very hard to contact & never reply to emails/calls. The children here have grown to become careless with their work & are more focused on non-essential things. The faculty members use favoritism to grade students & praise children to become the teacher's pet. This school is heavily based on Latino/Hispanic culture & everyone else is a minority. No sense of community in this school & there are only a handful of teachers who are actually helpful & will make sure you feel included & understood. My daughter will be attending Stone Scholastic Academy for 3rd grade & on ,although we live 2 blocks away from Armstrong. I advise other parents to stray away from this unfortunate & downhill school institution if they want their children to have a proper education experience.

PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THANK U VERY MUCH


Posted August 17, 2010

As a parent who truly believe you have to take your children out of chicago public schools to get a decent education as the teachers dont care..was proved wrong at this school. I have no major compaints about this school. My kids homeroom teachers seem to care about the students progress and I appreciate that. I come from a school district that went above and beyond and I was afraid to bring my kids back to CPS but Armstrong proved me wrong. Mr. Metcalf is great and so is Ms. Sullivan

I find it very difficult to be involved in child's school life at G. Armstrong. Teachers don't answer emails, voicemails. It would be nice if they could set up a system where the teacher sends out an email daily to the parents letting the parents know what the homework for the day is, and what the students are currently working on, and when the testing is.

Most of the teachers are not intouch with the students. Students grades 4 and up are never praised by most of the staff. The school could be quality if teachers and students worked together. The students need the principals attention on teachers and students working together.

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.

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.
