I have two children who have attended or are attending this school. Teacher involvement is excellent. Any bullying is addressed head on. Any issues at all are immediately result in a phone call or email to the parents. Both of my boys have enjoyed their years at this school, and I can say that they have learned a lot.

This school is absolutely horrible. I attended this school last year and I am very glad not to go here anymore. There is lots of racism, cliques and bullying problems. No one cares if you are getting bullied and the staff never tries to help you. I have witnessed multiple fights right in front of teachers. The students just do not care about learning and just want to gossip,fight and bully. It is hard to learn because there are so many disruptive students who, make it hard to concentrate. Stealing is another of many issues at this school. After school sport teams have had things such as cell phones, jewelry and much more stolen from the locker room. Overall it was not a pleasant learning experience and I do not feel I learned much at all.

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.
