My son has been at Lords Park from 1st-5th grade. I'm very pleased by the academic programs and the skills he has learned thus far. I'm very delighted to tell you about Mr. Killeen the principal. He is very professional and runs a tight ship. It is very organized and a cheerful place. The teachers are very educated.

We also have a child in 5th grade. Since the boundaries have changed the school has definitely gone down hill. While the most of the staff tries there are a few who do not deserve to teach but are only at the school because of tenure. The new students have also change the culture of the school. We are actually looking to move away from this school before our youngest will start attending. It s a shame we move here because of the schools reputation only to have it change to suit developers in the area. New school, no student for them, no money in the district. Thanks U46

We have had one child go through and another in 4th grade. We believe the staff is very good and works hard for the children. The feel of the school has changed since the boundaries were moved.

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.
