i personally think this is a very good place to let your child come to. Very respectable enviroment, nice workers, wonderful teacher, and beautiful programs. I used to come to this school, and it helped me alot. Their teachers are not only that, but friends as well, after all these years. -Belen Gomez .


Posted May 6, 2009

I am a teacher at Sanchez for the past few years now and I can honestly say that it is a great place to work and more importantly to learn. The students are very well behaved, try their hardest at everything they do, and are very motivated to learn. The parents are not as involved as I would like them to be as of yet, but steps are being taken to improve that within the building so the lines of communication stay open and the community can feel like they are an intergal part of the school. All students, staff, and parents are valued and respected here. I have never worked with such intelligent, qualified, and dedicated coworkers before. They truly have the knowledge of the curriculum, best practices for teaching the curriculum in place, and the students individual needs at heart. We want all students to experience success here.

The teachers do try to do their very best. I think that the school is just too large. It must be hard to keep everything in order.I do not mean to be so harsh it is just that I do not feel alot of parent involvement. I want be involved in everything that my children do. Or at least to be able to help make the school better. I do have to say that there are a few great teachers there.

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.
