I feel very blessed to be a member of Hardin County Elementary staff. The students are very respectful and hard working. Most parents are involved in their child's education by making sure homework is done and helping out any way they can. My fellow teachers, teacher aides, and I do everything we can to be sure each child receives a quality education. I truly love my job and my students.

Hardin County to me was a very good place to live in and go to school at the sports was great to me I had a good coach who taught discipline over everything else and most everyone supported me and my team. The school in general was a very good place for me and my fellow classmates to attend. There were no gangs or such things just you and your friends. Johnny Spivey

I think Hardin County was great because you can get away from all the the gangs and pure presure. It doesn't have great sports but I played them all and this is a close bond with everyone. So over all I thought it was a great school.

I am a former student at Hardin County but I moved away in 2004. I would say it was the best thing to ever happen to me. Andrew Morris

I am not a parent but I was a former student there and I would say Hardin County was the best school I ever attended. I would love to know if they have an e-mail address? If so could someone please send it to me at amaggard97@aol.com or amaggard97@yahoo.com. Thank You!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE 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.

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.
