Northeast has a positive behavior reenforcement program that promotes good behaviour and they also celebrate the students who have no infractions. The reading specialist in the building stayed with my child for two years even though she did not need to. She just cared enough to "keep up" with my child and I really appreciated her commitment and dedication. The teachers are tough but fair and very kind to both the students and staff. You also won't find a nicer principal in town!

I love Northeast Elementary School because: (1) they have a rigrous curriculuum that help's the student's prepare for middle school.(2) they have implemented a Father's in the school program, to get father's actively involved in the school.(3)They have a '0' tolerence for abusive/bully behavior (4) the staff (teacher's) are accessible and concerned and last but not least, the principle has a open door policy for all concerned parent's.

My son goes here and likes it. As with any school the parents and teachers must be in partnership to assist the students as they develop in the educational process. Parents must work with their own children at home if they want them to be successful. When teachers give work we need to make sure we are going over it with our children and also keeping lines of communication open. The teachers want to help and the school wants us to get involved. He is doing great as a result of what I do with him first and then what he learns at school second. I hope the rest of the teachers are just as concerned and easy to work with as his current K teacher.

This school has a wonderful staff and principal. My fourth child is now enrolled at this school and all of them have succeeded very well into their high school and college experiences. The school has taught my children life skills along with academics. There is discipline program in place and it teachs my child and other childrent that there are choices to be made and that consequences can be very positive and not just negative. I highly recommend this school.

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.
