My son attended Algonquin Primary Center for kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades. The excellent staff at Algonquin did a great job of preparing him for the intermediate grades. He was always a top performer. Now he is in 6th grade, and has gotten high honors every quarter since 3rd grade (that is when our district starts giving letter grades). He is part of the gifted program, reads at 12th grade level., his math skills are very high as well. I am so pleased my son got to attend Algonquin and Park Forest School District 163 schools.

When my son was in the first grade, I partnered with the teacher, principal and reading coach to prepare lessons for him because he is at a higher grade level. In the first grade, he was at a .38 reading level (3rd grade). He's now in the 2nd grade and the pace has slowed down because the teacher and dist in whole are not equipped to educated higher learners/gifted students at this level. It's due to the no child left behind. No child left behind to me means children forgotten. We need to implement a gifted program or pull out program for higher learners.
