Lack of communication from the teachers to the parents. Curriculum lacks effort from the students, answers are practically given to students without any research effort. Children are not allowed to take books home from school to use for homework or studying purposes. Teaching methods are not thoroughly explained on homework sent home that require parent participation and sign off on the assignment. No bus route for inner city students. No music class/program for children.

My daughter started this school in (K) she is now in 6th. She loves it all of miss the staff and teachers are very involved and really care about the kids. She is going to miss bluffview next year. I do think there needs to be a few more sports for the girls to get involved in.

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.
