The school spends a lot of time on being politically correct to the point that the kids are being cheated from educational time. The school has teachers with a union that is not interested in education or the children. The last 4 days of the school year there is basically no educational activity. Why? So the teachers have time to exit the school when the kids do. Don't know if this is a problem everywhere.

We love this school. The principal is awesome--responsive and enthusiastic. There are many outstanding, dedicated teachers at this school. Overall, a very positive vibe.

This school is a really good school. Ms. Toohey and Ms. Baum are the best teachers! They understood my son and helped him as much as they could. Principals are really great. Counselors not so much, but they are overloaded. School is really nice and well maintained. Every time I drive by there is always someone out cleaning up. Highly recommend this school!!

I would give this school a rating of 5 stars for they're science department. If you can have Ms. Toohey as a teacher then you and your child will have an enjoyabe experiance and will learn all kinds of fun and interesting facts that will prepare them for the high school experiance.

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.
