We are very pleased with the quality of educational services that this school offers. We moved our child from a private school into Euclid last year and were concerned in general. I have to say that it has been nothing but positive. The staff is highly trained, extremely professional, access to technology in the classroom is outstanding. The school also provides tremendous opportunities for individual growth beyond academics. As a community member I am proud to say that the has gained recognition from the state as a Green School - among its many sustainability achievements, it has a community garden that is the pride of our community, offering outdoor teaching & learning opportunities. The school also has a diverse student body - both economic as well as ethnic diversity which represents the global marketplace adequately and prepares students for the real world.

My daughter is in second grade at this amazing and inspiring school! Euclid teachers, principle, and staff not only teach academics but also life lessons in a fun way. I am a proud parent and appreciate that my child comes home raving about what a great day she had and about all she learned! Her favorite things about Euclid are: playing at recess :-), all her teachers and friends, and Math.

I think Euclid Elementary, so far is educationally what my son needs from an all-day kindergarten program. He is learning quite a bit & it's only week 3.

My child went to a Catholic school then transfered over to Euclid. The support services are phenominal for the kids. (speech/social work/homework help etc). The teachers have been very supportive and always available. My child has excelled in this school both acedemically and socially. The only difference between the Catholic school and Euclid is the parent involvement is more pronounced in a smaller Catholic school. Academically, this public school is better.

The curriculum is good and they have some great (highly experienced and decipllines) teachers. Library and PE facility should be enhanced.

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.
