Wonderful school full of involved parents, sweet staff, and great leadership. We moved mid-year last year, and the school did such an excellent job helping with the transition.

Our daughter is a kindergartner at Roosevelt this year. We could not be more pleased with Roosevelt's Teachers and Staff. The school and PTO did an excellent job preparing our family for this transition. They had a New Family Orientation Night, Family Picnic and an Open House. It is so wonderful to see your child excited to give her Principal, Dr Dwyer, a "high five" in the morning and literally skip inside to school.

Excellent public school in a wonderful community. This school should have 5 stars but several of the comments were posted awhile ago and stars were not given :)

Excellent school. Outstanding principal. My two children attended this school k - 5. They were well prepared for middle school and eventually Maine South. Fantastic instrumental music program. The teachers know the kids and there is a strong sense of community.

I have had two kids go through this school and it is a fantastic learning experience. A large school with a small town atmosphere. Great teacher / student, parent / teacher, parent / adminstration interactions; great PTO and school district.

My son has been at Roosevelt for two years now- third and fourth grade - and I've been very happy with everything so far. It's a very good school.

I have two kids at this school with very different educational needs. The teachers really go above and beyond to help the kids out.

Overall I am very please with the school. The teachers are great so far . The office staff is understanding and polite. I am disappointed with the lunch program. The building also needs to be updated.

We are new to Roosevelt this year, having come from another much smaller school within the district. Tho it is very large, the principal works wonders to give it a small school feel.Academics and nonacademics I would rate high, like most of the district strives for. The size takes getting used to, but it is workable. They work hard to get to know all the parents and kids by first names!

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.
