Chateaux School has challenged both of my children academically year after year. The teachers assess the students regularly an adjust the curriculum to meet the student's needs. My children make the honor roll regularly and enjoy going to school everyday!

My children have thrived at Chateaux. They have had some of the best, dedicated teachers. Not all of the teachers are great but I feel my children are excelling well. The school also has a number a family activities/events to keep the home school connection open.

My son was in Chateaux last year. He was in 1st grade. Unfortunately, I had to remove him from this school. His teacher was inexperienced and has no classroom management skills. The room was always chaotic. My son was not challenged although he was identified as gifted. The principal does little to ensure classroom environments conductive for learning. I have found that there are a few very good teachers at this school. As a matter of fact my son had one in kindergarten. However, as a whole this school needs much improvement. Parents are not permitted to volunteer or assist in their child's edcuation (I have tried). This is a huge loss for the kids. The quality of education went down with the change in principals. The new principal is a nice person but a terrible principal.

I am an involved 7 year parent. I have had one child (honor roll student) promoted and about to enter highschool, also a 1st grader (honor student) at Chateaux. I have seen this school go through its changes. I am extremely pleased with our new principal. Three years ago we were placed on the Illinois watch/warning list. Since then we have exceeded expectations and each year our children have met the grade at or above the states testing goals. Discipline is key and our new principal believes in it. Only parent involvement is lax and the only time parents get involved is when they want to complain. The teachers care and often stay late to prepare their classes for the next day. I wouldnt want my child to be anywhere else but a District 144 school!

I am a concerned parent at this school. My problem with the school is why are the students getting suspended for every little thing? Instead of having a counselor talk to them, they send them to the office and send them home. I thought that,s what the counselors were their for. My child is not learning anything, because they spend most of their time at home. This school has caused my child to hate school, and has caused me to have little to no faith in the public school system. The teachers really need to start acting as if they care about our kids.

This school has very little involvement with student individual needs. I agree with the first review. The reason this school is so concerned with ISAT scores is because it has been on the state's watch list for a long time. It seems the teachers go out of their way to help students during ISAT testing but is not concerned with helping them excel academically throughout the school year.. I would not recommend this school to any parent who value their child's education.

this school help kids get better scores on their isat instead of teaching them how to do the work!!!! some of the teaching staff is not up to par, and the new principal do not follow up on parents concerns.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 9, 2006

this school and district has not yet up to par with their curriculums or teacher staff. In otherwords, they both lack. Therefore, their philosophy is they have high expectations for their students and thus, the children are responsible for issues and things out of their control. Yet, they are held accountable. The school and the district has come along very little while our children are being left behind!

My son has attended chateaux since 1st grade. He is currently in the 6th grade. He is an above average student who does well in his classes. The principal is very experienced and well involved. She is in the classrooms often and knows students and parents by name. I would like to see more parental involvment here though. My son has always received awards for his high test scores but in general the test scores of other children have not been that high.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
