Student here. I loved this school . I grew up here. The only problem is the budget cuts. My favorite teacher had to be replaced. The school is small. But never over crowded. Barley violent. Almost no fights. Teachers were barley hard graders. All they focused on was on the Isat. Which my reading teacher got kind of annoying with that. & sometimes they focused to much on the dress code policy and bookbags. But theres more postives then negatives. Improvement is just the test scores.


Posted January 31, 2013

Four of my children attend this school. I see some teachers that really want to help, but others not so much. Its a school with potential, all it needs is a little push. I wish that it would be a five star, not a three. I feel that the school board of district 89 should take a hard look at the direction in wich our sudents are heading, and come togather with the parents to design a plan of action to inpower our children with the best education possible.

My son was lucky enough to go to the same school from K-8th. I absolutely love the fact that we need to provide proof of residency each year at registration. This process eliminates the possiblity of the school becoming over crowded and keeping class sizes at a min. I loved the teachers my son had throughout the years and my only regret was not being more involved with the school. Good school. SAFE school. Could use improvement academically to keep kids on their toes.

I have been teaching for a few years and I love my job. However, I feel like many of my fellow teachers are unprofessional and the school should look more welcoming to our students, especially on the inside. Many of the teachers behave like they're burnt out and take it out on the kids-in my opinion.

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.
