The teachers arent the problem at Earlville Schools. Its the Administration and the School Board. The head administrator is extremely rude and arrogant. So are some of the school board members when administration problems were brought up to them. The teachers get the fall out.

I recently left the Earlville school district after 5 years. During that five years my son was exposed to teachers who were at times insensitive and cruel. Though are some dedicated teacher at Earlville, there are just as many that have lost their compassion and heart for the job. Furthermore their special education resources are limited at best. Overall the district needs a trememndous amount of improvements.

Alright, as a recently graduated student from Earlville High, I will say it is definetly not a 5 star school. However, it is not a terrible school. The students don't have near as many opportunities as big schools, but that's not necessarily the schools fault. Earlville is a tiny town that consists of too many bars and has a hard time getting funding. The school is a huge part of the community and it is very involved in the activities that happen at the school. Many of the teachers are very good at providing plenty of equal amounts of attention to the students. There are the exceptions, but for the most part they are amazing. I can honestly say that at least 5 of my high school teachers are better than my college professors. As far as extra curriculars go, the athletics are very limited and clubs are non-existent.

I will go along with this, but this school provides what the children need to get them school. The teachers at Earlville provide care and extra help if needed. These teachers work very hard to help these children be successful. I went to school in Earlville and I can pretty much say that I am very successful because of this school.

This school is wonderful. I have four children with three presently enrolled. The leadership is outstanding. Academics are stressed over sports. My children have done well in both. The math program in particular is exceptional. The high school consistently wins the district title. The availability of technology is top notch. There is a complete computer curriculum. Discipline is good. The students don't get away with much. They seem happy as a group.

This school is a huge disappointment. I have one child enrolled and because he's the artistic boy, not an athlete, he definetly get treated different. This school does not have a shining academic profile so they focus on sports. The leadership is lacking. Children get hurt, on school grounds, serious injuries, and they take no action against the assailants except a two day suspension, if that. That's a party for those kids. They do not call police regularly, for fights, or EMTs for injuries (involving blood) I know first hand. My son has one wonderful teacher, who works with him, allowing him to shine, differences and all. To ensure your child is world ready, do not, let them graduate here. Send them to a private/religous school for 9-12. They do not prepare here, they just push them along to graduate.

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.
