I am a parent and I recieved a CPS calander with the revised snow dates from 2 different Bateman teachers. Also if you check the website on a regular basis you would have known about the dates. I also agree with the below volunteering is a great way to know what is going on in the school. Communicating with Teachers or other parents is a great way too this is the furst person I have heard that is not aware of the revised dates.

I must say, this school has definitely bit the dust. Terrible school! We received a notice that the last day of school will be on June 10th and now our planned vacation got messed up and we cannot go because we were informed only last week verbally (no note sent home) that the kids were going to just finish up the week. This school has no organization skills whatsoever, and there are many other issues with this school that other parents here did not mention. And frankly, it's not worth my time. Skip the problems and transfer! Best wishes for parents looking for an exceptional school. Try Stone Magnet or Disney! Both of these are VERY great schools!

This is untrue and I feel this is defamation of character. Bateman is an amazing school. Come see for yourself.

I would be very weary of attending this school. There is a hidden agenda and your child will quickly get lost in the sea of test scores.

My daughters have been at this school for 8 years now and this is the best the school has been. My daughter has special needs and it is difficult to find activities she can do. Thanks to the new administration there are many after school activities that my daughters are a part of. The environment is very friendly and I feel very comfortable approaching the new Principle and the assistants, very different from years before. It's wonderful to see the importance they place on math and science. I was so impressed with the work the kids did recently in the science fair. Also, there are extremely supportive teachers like Ms. Hellige, Mr. Degraff, Mrs. Wilson and Ms. Hurst. I know my daughters are excelling because of all if them. I really support this school and recommend it to everyone.

This was a great school but the new principal assistants are really bad, they are really rude , they treat parents as part of the problems instead of the solution, this school inplemented a lot of changes and this people treated parents like if they were idiots, will change my kids from this school

When I take my daughter to school I feel she is safe. Every day I see parents volunteering, two dedicated assistant principals, great teachers and the principal keeps things under control. i heard some teachers complaining about all the work but I see the same teachers arriving at the same time I drop off my daughter and leaving with her class by 3:15 Shame on those few teachers who are just there for a paycheck. Thank God the majority of teachers are not like that. Doctor Bacelieri keep it going.

This is really a great up and coming neighborhood school. We've had our son there in pre-K and now Kindergarten, and couldn't be more pleased with how he's flourished (he has an IEP). The principal was open about how he had to deal with the budget cuts this year, and managed it in a way to try to make the least (negative) impact on the actual teaching of students. He's really great. Our only concern is nothing to do with this school, but with the destructive attitude of the City toward public education. We worry whether future CPS budget cuts will imperil the great work being done here.

The new principal at Bateman is fantastic! He knows how to get things done and all the positive changes at the school are exciting! He has two assistant principals who are working very hard to continue to improve the school as well. Teachers, students and parents are being challenged and the school will only continue to improve! A gifted program, a true middle school program complete with lockers for the students, smart boards in every classroom, tons of extracurricular activities for the older students, a NAEYC accredited preschool, a Friends of organization, active volunteering, this neighborhood school is up and coming!

This school used to be a hidden gem. Now with the new administration and all the great programs it is getting harder and harder to get in if you are not in the neighborhood. I have been happy with education standard as well as the social environment for my children. This school is continuing to evolve which makes it exciting to be a part of.

Bateman has a great principal and support staff, and a well formed LSC. Teacher are informative and helpful. I would give the school a 5 star rating but the after school program was not available to all children because of the selection process.

If you are a parent with a child with a IEP that is in the Special Education Program, you have to be told that this school is so far behind and is limited on being able to provide the Education that our children deserve and need don't let them fool you, you have rights. Go on line check out local schools see what they offer, see the differents classroom setting that they provide, see there test score, the feel of there school, see how there children with special needs our made to feel welcome, understood, how well the teacher our educated being able to truly educate our kids. Bateman is cold, unenviting, out dated, lack of respect for there parents, they have no understanding or concern for our children with IEP or there disorders. It is an out rage, how could they get away with this, how they count on the parents not understanding there childs rights, how parents don't have a good understanding how there IEP is to protect your childs right, how very important it is for the parent to help write the IEP to best fit there childs needs NOT WHATS BEST FOR THE SCHOOL!!! never allow the school to change the IEP to suite the school, IEP is to be written to suite your child need!!!!

I went to Bateman since i was in Kindergarden all the way to Graduating in 2009. It was an absolutely amazing experience. I miss my elementary school, and the most incredible teachers you could ever imagine. They care so much about their students and give the best they have to offer every single day. They are enthusiastic about teaching and i would say Bateman has some of the best teachers EVER in the whole country!! My experience at Bateman was one that i will never ever forget and the teachers and staff are just WONDERFUL, words cannot describe how great they are and how much i miss that school.

Bateman has excellent teachers, support staff, administrators, supportive parents and hard-working students. Keep up the great work :-)

Because Dori Lawrence is the best teacher in the school, bar none.

My two children have attended Bateman since pre-K. They have both become very sharp, stimulated, and responsible youths. They have many opportunities to participate in a wide variety of school activities. They both have excelled in Bateman's gifted program. They have a hunger for learning and research. They have a great relationship with all their teachers, both past and present. The entire staff, from Principal to janitorial, seem to have a real love for Bateman. This shows by their care for Bateman's students and families. Bateman is a fantastic neighborhood school. It is like a being part of a wonderful diverse family.

My daughter has been at Bateman since Kindergarten. And is now in third grade. I could not find one thing negative about this school. She has a thrive to learn, and loves going to school. What makes this possible is the incredible teachers and staff. The principal Mr. Dasko and Assistant principal Mr. Jimenez are a wonderful asset to Bateman, they work together as a team to get things done. That is what makes a school. The teachers at Bateman are wonderful, there main focus is enriching a quality education to the children. With that said Bateman is a absolutely great place for any child to build wonderful memories of there education.

We came from a Private School where my son was not being challenged at all. We gave our neighborhood school a chance and my child has really excelled and there has been a remarkable change in him in terms of study habits, discipline and test scores. I must add...He loves going to school (I wish this would have been his first school). As Parents we should get involved in our children s education and support our teachers, administrators and all other school staff. Keeping a good parent-teacher relationship is essential for the student. It demonstrates to your child that he can trust his teacher, because you do. This positive relationship makes a child feel like the important people in his life are working together. Working together will take Bateman to #1 status in the city of Chicago. It already is in my book! Hurray for Bateman!!

This is a wonderful neighborhood school and deserves to be rated higher. The principal Mr. Dasko and Asst. Principal Mr. Jimenez are doing an exceptional job. Teachers are committed. They provide and encourage a well rounded education while instilling a love for learning. You can clearly see they are there to teach and not to Babysit . The gifted program and other programs offered at this school are fabulous. The gifted program is an accelerated academic program and additional homework, research and special projects are of course part of that experience and enrichment. If subjects are too challenging for a particular student then perhaps he/she has been misplaced. Note to parents...Let s not limit our children s capacity. Also, let s not overlook the extra resources available at Bateman not only for students but for their parents as well.

The Principal and Asst. Principal are terrible. I agree that this school will be much better off once these two are removed.

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.

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.
