Everyone in the school has a positive attitude. We moved here recently from another school district - the moral of the staff at Eugene Field is like night and day from our old school. Way to go!!!!

For starters, the principal is awesome! He is always a present force at the school, available any time you need him, and very hands on with the kids! The teachers are very dedicated and concerned about the success of each and every student there!

Great teachers & my 10 yr old daughter is doing very well in her 1st year at Eugene Field.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 4, 2010

My daughter started at Eugene Field this year. She had previously attended another school in the district. What a difference! At the previous school, it was not friendly, and my daughter did not want to go to school. Now that she attends Eugene Field, she likes to go to school and it is so much friendlier. You see the principal out every morning and after school at the crosswalk interacting with both the parents and the students. We are so glad that we were able to switch schools!

There's lots of opportunity for growth as a student in this school. They offer a wide range of activities during and outside of the school day as well as getting parents/families involved with their students.

Eugene Field School is an outstanding school ! If there is a school that has 'it all', it is Eugene Field. The Principal has an open door policy and is welcoming to parents comments or concerns, the teachers are gifted and structured and the children excel! Recently, our school district rezoned and Eugene Field enrollment almost doubled. We had to add an addition on, revamp the classrooms and grade levels while welcoming hundreds of new families and teachers to our school. It was an impressive transition! Parents do not feel like visitors, they are encouraged to take on an active role and participate as their schedules allow. There is not enough positive feedback I can give you about this school to make you fully appreciate why I am extremely proud to have my children going there. I started my children in an expensive private school but changed to Eugene Field (public school)due to the friendliness and expectations of the teachers and staff. That in itself speaks volumes!

Our boys have attended Eugene Field for the past 3 years. I have been very happy with the quality of education they are receiving. The Principal is almost always available for the parents and students alike. I feel like our children are safe and actually learning.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
