Great leadership, great teachers and very involved parents. I can't say enough good things about the teachers and principal. Great staff!

We recently bought a home in HomerGlen because we liked the area and for the schools. We didn't make a mistake! So far I am very impressed with the school system. The staff and teachers are welcoming and friendly.

Our daughter attends this school, with our son soon to follow. My wife and I have nothing but great things to say about our experience with the teachers and staff at Goodings Grove. More importantly, our daughter loves it there and loves school because of it. We moved to area when our children were born because of the good schools and we are seeing the benefits of that decision now.

All three of my kids have gone there. My one son did have new teachers, his 1st and second, and 3rd grades but my son who is four years later is having those same teachers and they have improved 100 Percent. Everyone has to start somewhere. There Speech program was excellent!!!

I am very dissatisfied with this school in general, and with its special education program. You have to hound the school in order to get them to follow through with things, including, documents, follow up phone calls, paper work needed for pediatrician follow up, and more. The schools security is lacking, but making improvements. It seems that the younger, less experienced teachers start out here. The Curriculum is more advanced then surrounding schools, and it seems as though they are pushing the children too hard. If you have a choice, do not put your child in 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.
