Mill Street School has 635 kids and 32 Sections. Second year Principal Mary Baum is an outstanding leader and my children are better people for attending this school. The staff and teachers are second to none in district 203. The continued attention my children are getting there is second to none. Thank you Mill Street staff and teachers!

Mill street is execellent for general ed students, but I also have 2 special ed students at the school and I feels as if they could try a little harder to accommodate their needs.

Mill Street is an excellent school. While I have some minor complaint, they are minor. Overall this is a well run and academically challenging school. My minor complaints deal with getting more children in their PI program (supposedly for gifted children). My son was in it but I think that more children could benefit from this program. Getting in is based entirely on test scores which I beleive to be poor way to differentiate between students. There are many very dedicated and excellent teachers at this school. I only had two that I thought were not quite up to the others in quality.

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.
