Great school. Wonderful principal, teachers and staff. My children love Lakeview. PTA has fun activities for students.

It's probably early for me to give acual rating about this school, since my child only started going there four weeks ago, but here's few examples of what you can expect. There's no school bus service if you live too close to the school. That means you take your child and you pick him up. They tell you drop off time is 8:30 'till 8:40, but the door was closed at 8:38 this morning. So we entered through the office where he was marked tardy, at 8:42! I was also told to wait for my son at exit 6, but it has NEVER been exit 6, it's always 7. I even wrote to the teacher asking her to help my child with that confusion (he's only 7), she found him 'a buddy' who took him to the exit 7 :) One time he got left behind since he took long to pack his things. It was FIVE minutes after dissmissal when he came to the door, eyes wide open, wondering how there's no one around him in school. Maybe our problem is that we are coming from an excellent school, but honestly, I feel like we made a mistake buying the house in this neighborhood. Read reviews! This school has bad ratings and bad parents' reviews.

In regards to attitude of the school and attaining a higher education, Lakeview is second to none. I have three kids who have attended or are currently attending Lakeview School and have been fortunate enough in having the best teachers who have helped them be their best. Unfortunately, I think my children's safety trumps any academic goals the school has. And in this area, this school fails. My daughter's teacher at the time (currently one of the school's ibrarians) was at best, dismissive and insensitive. Anyone interested in reading about our experience can do so by reading the comments following the article by Leslie Crawford about bullying and a father's grief on this website.

My sons attended the kindergaten class from 8:40 am to 3:00 pm (whole day) which fits my schedule as a working mom.

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.
