This is an awful school. All the other schools know if a student gets transferred from here it means they have alot of work to do catching this kid up. I work as an assistant at other schools and you should hear what the teachers say about this school. Its bad.

My daughter is not only the best teacher in this school but my two granddaughters Josie and Molly are the absolute best students!!


Posted December 15, 2006

I have found Tyler to be a great, personalized school - one where the teachers, staff and parents are on a first-name basis. The staff knows all the kids and they look out for them. Tyler has a very active PTO and my kids always look forward to going to school. They enjoy meeting new people and because the school has such a diverse population, we have the privelege of learning about other cultures and traditions based on first hand experience. I love it!

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.
