My children have gone to Burr school for the past 5 years, and we love it! They have thrived there and enjoy going to school there every day. The school is very good at differentiating teaching so that every child is challenged and differing needs are met. They also have great after school programs such as chess, dance, sports, art, japan club, and reading clubs. The teachers and administration are caring and communicative.

We have been at Burr for 4 years and have been very happy. Burr has an undeniable community of involvement! The parents and faculty are committed to the schools success which has taken leaps in the past several years. Along with a new principal, Burrs future is in great hands. Burr offers Japanese as part of the curriculum, and has offered small group teaching when neccessary. In my experience the administration has been very open to parents requests or concerns. We are currently fundraising for more Arts & technology improvements. We have 7 nationally board certified teachers. I truly cant say enough about our school. If you have any further questions feel free to attend one of our school tours on the 1st and 3rd thursday of each month, or message our "Friends of Burr" Facebook page."

This is my family's first year at Burr. Due to my child's teacher lack of being connected to the students, our experience has not been very welcoming. The teacher lacks compassion and positive communication to ALL students. Administration tries to include everyone however their is a separation of privilege for the parents who are in the "in crowd". On a positive note, there is a HUGE parental involvement.

Burr is an excellent school. The teachers are in constant communication on expectations and progress. The Principal and Asst Principal keep a strong community with staff, parents and volunteers. The amount of trust and loyalty witnessed between the students and teachers is amazing and truly speaks to the commitment that everyone has in continuing to build Burr to rise all the way to the top!

Posted January 7, 2009

My son has been a student at Burr for three years. Two of them in the pre-k program with Mrs. Maley and now kindergarden with Ms. K. I have only had great experiences here. The teachers are very caring, dedicated and prepared. When my child started school he was a very shy child and I've seem him blosoom every year.

I had my son in first grade last year with Mrs. B. Iam pleased to say that I was very happy with her way of teaching. She challanged my son, and was also caring and patient. I only wish all teachers would be as caring and have the patience to teach young children like she has.

My daughter has been at Burr for two and a half years and I continue to think very highly of this great Chicago public school. There are many additional programs that enhance the regular curricullum, and the kindergarten teacher, Ms. Knafelz is very dedicated, creative and caring. My daughter has been consistently challenged, and the simple daily homework routine sets a high standard and promotes good discipline. Her reading, writing and math skills have steadily progressed. Hurrah for Burr!!

I would like to express how very pleased I am with the education my children receive, academically and beyond. My children have attended Burr since 2002. They've always been encouraged to go above and beyond. With the reforming of our PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) Parental involvement continues to grow. The teachers and staff are very welcoming and work with the families to help each child achieve their best grades and test scores. The principal, Ms. Scott, is highly educated and experienced and continues to take classes/courses to continue her education (which she also requires of her staff). She is a great leader and a wonderful example to her teachers of what an educator should be. I love that respect for teachers, peers, and the children themselves is a major part of their learning. I hope that you consider Burr for your child's educational needs. - Local School Council Chairperson

I would just like to say that Burr Elementary is a 'Great' school.The reason I say this is because it has a lot of programs that no other school around the district has to offer.My experience here with my child has been awesome!I could'nt be any happier with the staff,and to see how much they truly care about each every student here and for that I give the school an A+.I truly hope you get to meet this historic school that has so much to offer.Thanks Burr Staff from a very happy parent!

My daughter is in the pre-K program at Burr and is really enjoying it. We are new to Chicago and were afraid we would not be able to find a pre-school for our daughter. We were very relieved when we found Burr. Mrs Maley is an excellent pre-K teacher and even though our daughter (who is quite shy) started part of the way through the year she had no trouble settling in.

Posted May 23, 2007

The teachers at Burr are some of the best as far as discipline and caring for the students go. My children have been in several different schools, and we are finally happy with Burr. We have gotten to know several of the teachers and we value their opinion and judgment very much, especially once the students get into the higher grades. The 5-8 grade teachers really know their stuff.

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.
