Posted April 29, 2012

This school is a K-12 school that is severely lacking in arts. There are no choir or drama classes. Because certain people didn't like the marching band instructor's "progressive" music (The Beatles!!), they closed their band program in 2011. If you want a school full of nothing but "AG" classes - this is the school for you. If you want your child to learn how to repair a lawn mower engine, come on down. If you want your child to have any kind of culture - this is NOT the place. There is severe favoritism based on a child's last name and relatives. The small-town mentality runs rampant here.

This school has need in every area. Difficulties begin with the school board itself. Members have personal agendas for joining. Mostly, it ensures their family members will be hired and/or their children will receive special treatment in academics and athletic programs. Another parent stated that this causes difficulties with rules and guidelines, I couldn't agree more.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE 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.
