Posted July 21, 2014

I've had 2 children go through this school from kindergarten through 4th. Now it's 1st-4th. The school has too many students and not enough teachers really getting to know the student's personality as a result. A lot of the teachers are good. Some however need to retire. The pilot program for the math initiative brought about no resources for those kids caught in the gap of transitioning from one program to the next (which was much more difficult). The solution we sought was to try and hire a tutor (which again the school had no recommendations), but ultimately ended up with several hours of homework each night. This caused great resentment in my child and a hatred for school needless to say. I honestly don't know why any school would be part of a pilot initiative and then not have resources when the kids struggle to catch up to the much higher standard and expectation placed upon them. Overall the school is good, but to gain a 5 star rating from this family, they have a ways to go.

Good teachers. Special ed teachers are a definite improvement over last year. District always is trying to cut fine arts and PE.

The teachers and administrators go the extra mile to maintain excellent communication with parents and help the children succeed, not only academically, but with the understanding of social and individual responsibility.

The teachers and the principal are incredible people. They show the parents that they care for the children. They work hard to keep our children on their toes when it comes to class room work and homework. They keep the parents alert via e-mails.

My child went to this school last year. The 5th grade was overcrowded but they tried to make the best that they could. My child had much fun and good experiences there. They had wonderful choir which helped my child develope a liking for it and experience for 6th grade. The band was amazing and the music teacher was very ineractive. The principal was very elegant, he tried to get to know each of the kids names. They had very much sucess and now my child goes to the intermediate. Its are 3rd year in this district and i have to say by far it is much better than my childs previous district. Very proud parents of an minooka 201 child.

Beautiful, new school. Classes are not overcrowded...average class sizes, except for 5th grade. Where did the previous parent get his/her information? There is band and chorus starts in January and there was a Christmas program on December 20th and it was fabulous! Music teacher is wonderful with all of her students. District is NOT raising taxes...don't you read the paper? The PTO is trying, lot of new comers working together for the children.

New school last year. Is completely overcrowded this year. Have taken away band and Christmas programs for children. district focuses on raising taxes for additional schools and doesn't address current issues at all. P.T.O unorganized and self distructive.

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.
