This is an amazing school. Between my 3 boys we have been there 5 years and have another 5 years there. The principal is very understanding and cares for everyone of his students. All the teachers have also been great and a lot of them have been teaching at Illini for many years.

My daughter who is in kindergarten has been bullied on the bus since the beginning of the school year. From being punched in the head , kicked, choked, and items being thrown at her. The principle obviously did not want to punish the child who did it , and proceeded to tell me about the kids medication , and other info, which does not mean much to me . It took him almost 6 months to finally remove him from the bus. I do not think he has what it takes to be in charge , because he is not putting the kids first.

Illini is a Great school. all 3 of my kids went there!. the teachers and principals ( past and present) are/were very approachable and friendly. I brag about them all the time. my kids know no other school dist. They may not be perfect, but I thinks it is great compared to private schooling.

The teachers are excellent and full of passion. However, the administration could care less about the children's education or safety. For example, they have allowed my kindergartner to get on the bus when she was in the afterschool program. The afterschool program is also horrible. They rarely know where your child is and are extremely rude. My son has came home many times stating he was being picked on by the older children. They no longer go to the afterschool program.

I feel proud that my children have attended Illini Elementary. I do feel the Administration should familiarize themselves a little better in the special needs department. Most of the services are contracted out through BASSC or TheraKids, and they are wonderful. Without a lot services coming directly from the school, I think the Administration Department doesn't find it necessesary to update themselves on current information in regards to autism or other developmental disabilities. The regular curriculum is wonderful and challenging. The teachers are caring and strive to truly educate the students - academically, socially, and emotionally.

I have had three children attend Illini and they have all loved it. The PreK staff is wonderful! The teachers we have had in K, 1st, and 2nd have also been great! We have loved our time at Illini.

Daughter attended kindergarten and 1st grade. She excelled! Wonderful teachers and staff. We were very impressed with the academics. Our daughter was working on projects that her cousins were doing in 3rd grade (in a different state). Fantastic school! Great PTA! I have nothing but praise.
