It has been a wonderful year with ossom teachers for my daughter In kindergarden . I can see she drastically changed . As she is going to kumon her reading is quite good but the teachers very we'll know where she has to improve they used to train her in such a way that she is capable of reading with ease. I never even imagined that she was given such a reading practice. She has received all the appreciation from her teachers. I could see how happy she was togo to school she will definitely miss her kindergarden teachers. I can't simply say thank you.

We love this school. We moved here from Europe and had heard great things about Prairieview, so now I have my two boys attending PV and really enjoy it. The curriculum is challenging and stimulating, the classrooms are bright and welcoming and best of all the teachers are fantastic, they go above and beyond. When I ask my children " how was your day at school?" their reply is "brilliant" what more could I ask for!

I have two children that go to PV School and they love it. As a former teacher, I am continually impressed by how much extra time and effort, outside of the school day, the teachers put into educating their students. I believe the academics are very well-taught and their education is tailored to meet their needs. PV's use of technology is strong and the teachers do everything, in their power, to encourage the use of Smart Boards, etc. PV's school climate is beyond excellent. The teachers and staff provide a learning environment in which the students are challenged to become their best within a risk-free learning atmosphere. Finally, the physical environment, itself, is centered around a community theme, that is bright, inviting, and full of vigor. I'm a huge fan!

We have only positive feelings about Prairiview teachers. We have two children at this school that come up happy, confident, and feeling special every single day. I believe that is because on top of the teaching, these teachers put in extra time to really know the students. The school is run well, organized and fun. That being said the superintendent and board of education really needs to evaluate its decisions on how monies in this district are handled. Poor administrative choices in the last few years.

We have three children in Prairieview. This school has recently struggled a little with over-crowding and funding issues. The teachers and staff have all continued to work hard to manage all of these students. We love the continuing quality of education our school insists upon.

I have two boys that go to Prairieview School and they love it there. The general class sizes are generally 25 students per class and the teachers have the help of teacher's aides. The staff at the school is very involved with the children and they work as a team. Both of my children have grown both socially and academically at this school. There is lots of parent involvement.

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.
