I am so happy with my daughter's kindergarten education at Sabin. All of the kindergarten teachers were wonderful, as well as art, music, gym and library. The principal is great, and the office staff is so nice and helpful. The students are also really nice kids. And any bad behavior is taken care of properly and swiftly by the administration and security.

kids have no respect and get what ever they want!the school administration backs the kids more than the teachers and subs!


Posted January 14, 2014

the students at this school only respond to their teachers and not subs!if these kids don't like you they will tell on you!

Cons- Sabin is a an average school. Is no longer a Magnet duo Language school. Kids graduate from Sabin not witting in cursive because cursive is not included in the teachers curriculum. Sad to say ! Sabin tends to hire very young teachers that just graduated. with little or no experience. Pros- Many after school activities for the kids and sports. The principal seems to keep it fun for the kids. My 17 year old attended this school from kinder through 8th grade and I currently have a sixth grader that loves the school and most of the teachers.

I like this school but the participation of parents is almost nothing. I think this school is going down because parents look like they do not care their kids.

This school is bilingual and has teachers that really care about their students. They provide plenty of extra learning opportunities outside of class as well.

I want to congratulate the Principal and the teachers for their well done jobe during the last year and the energy that they demostrate the first day @ school year. I think that exist a lack of cultural sensitive and communications. I don't accept as a theory that the parents of this particular school are not interested in their children education, the true here is that the principal and his staff are not effective to finding a different ways to have the parents motivated in the school activities, because they can mesuare that parent involvement only to show up to a meeting or the open house day if they got the information the date before. Please be more efficient in the communication and doing a variety of activities that involve parents of all kind. Best whishes!!!

I love this school. The principal and staff are sensitive to the needs of the children. However the lack of parental involvement is disturbing to me. This school could be so much better if parents would become involve in their child's education.

I have attended workshops for parents in the morning and the evening. I have learned a lot about ways to help my child read. My son is new to the school and has struggled with reading. This school has done so much to help me understand and my son loves reading now. He has read to me for the first time. Thank you Sabin, the reading teacher, and the counselor to.

I have been a teacher for a great many years, and I would like to say thank you to the administration and instructional team. They have provided great professional development, allowed teachers time to collaborate, helped answer questions, and visited our classrooms frequently. I really feel that the current team is working to include the community partnerships,parents, teacher feedback and input from children in their decisions. We have been able to attend outside workshops and even visit other schools. Thank you very much for the learning environment that you are creating for us.

I am so greatly indebted to the schools administration and faculty who have helped inspire my son in ways that I cannot begin to count. Upon enrolling my son at Sabin in 2006 I did not know what to expect as my son would be attending his first school ever in the United States. I did not know what fears lay ahead for my son and his new adventures. My greatest fears were laid to rest on his first day home from school. He said 'Dad, I like it here a lot' and with that being said, Sabin has meant so very much to me and my family. Mr. Dassinger has had a tremendous interest in not only my sons education but to each and every student and parent as well. I tip my hat to Mr. Dassinger and to his entire administration for their endearing efforts to educate our childen.

Sabin is a great school - I have had two children graduate and 2 who are still at the school. I love the new administration and phenomenal teachers - they have done great things to improve the education my children receive. The after school program is amazing - my kids look forward to attending. I am extremely satisfied with the education my children receive.

I truly admire the staff at Sabin Magnet School. The new administrative team has readily returned phoned calls and gone out of there way to support my son. As a single mother, I have expressed concerns about my son's success. At each turn, the Sabin instructional team has reached out to my son to help him in ways that simply go above and beyond the classroom curriculum. I have been able to meet with counselors about my son's achievement in school, reviewed specific progress my son was making with the teacher, and the reading specialist helped by suggesting ways I can help my son at home within a limited time frame. Each time I go to Sabin, I feel that the emphasis is on the children. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who wants a quality education for their child.

I myself was a student at sabin along time ago and as a parent i want the best for my daughter. Seeing her potential and knowing that she can reach for the stars i decided to try to apply to as many magnet schools as i could. Although she got accepted to a few my first choice was Sabin because from experience i know i would be making the right choice. Shes in 3rd grade and i am not going to say that its been easy the transition for her has been a very emotional one. She misses her old friends and even though she has been an honer roll student all her life its been a challenge but with the help of her teacher who is such a support system and really puts her children first i know it will get better.

I have a son who is in his 2nd year there after being transfered from another school. In the other school he was breezing thru the grade with mostly A and 1 or 2 B's but since the tranfer I notice it is a bit more challenging for him. He's doing well but has to work a bit hard, which to is a good thing. Next year I plan to transfer my kindergarden child there for 1st grade.

Posted September 7, 2007

I have always been a strong Sabin supporter, however, I am very dismayed with the new principal and his attitude toward parents and the LSC. He has his own agenda and disregards parent viewpoints and concerns. I wish I had not attended LSC meetings, because I would almost prefer to be in the dark, than to know the way he disregards the caring parents on the LSC and makes huge changes without a second thought. Changing start times and demoting the AP have been particularly disturbing. I am disheartened by his attitude and am looking for a better fit for my children/family.

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.
