From pre-school through 3rd grade my firstborn has received an exceptional education. Yes, taxes are high, but are they? Teacher-student ratio is higher in SD204 Nequa Valley. My observations of my son's achievement and accomplishment at this elementary school is exceptional, and a clear result of excellent (& happy) faculty, availability and effectiveness of teaching resources, and caliber of the district's education initiatives. Exams and scores, etc. are clearly benchmarks for the academic excellence. Nonetheless, my personal observations of my son's achievements, advancements, and accomplishments from the start of one school year to its end leaves me spellbound at the pace, effectiveness, and exceptional caliber of White Eagle Elementary School.

I have had 3 children in White Eagle Elementary . This years marks the 7th year I have a child there. Great school! They are getting an amazing education. Yes, taxes are high, but compared to other areas with excellent schools, we are actually paying less than they are

We just moved here from an outstanding school district in another state. Staff seems very competent. The quality of education is superb, although the ridiculously high taxes should justify an excellent education.

My childgoes to this school and is in the 3rd grade. Her teacher is name Mrs. O'mara. She thinks she is very nice. My daughter also thinks that Mr. Gamboa is very funny. In 2004 he was an angel for halloween. In school they do something called a mad minute. You have 1 minute to awnser 30 math problems. First you do 30 addition and if you pass that you go onto 30 subtraction problems. If you pass that you go on to 30 multiplacation problems. If you pass that you go on to 30 divison problems. If you happen to pass that you would go on to algabra and keep on doing that for the rest of the year. I know that my daughter loves this school and we are going to stay for a long time.

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.
