I have two children at this school and have been happy with the teachers, the curriculum, and especially the administration and staff. They are welcoming and caring and demonstrate a strong message of growth every year with annual themes and shared performance on MAP tests. My children know they are improving and I know how to help them at home. Kudos to the principal and AP for their leadership and visibility to families!

Teachers and staff are the best! However the district performance as a whole leaves a lot to be desired. 10 percent of the High School graduating class are prepared for college according to an article in the Patch.

I have been very impressed with the leadership and teachers at this school. It had some issues when it was a new school about 10 years ago, but I would highly recommend this school now. The facilities are great, the teachers are very caring and my children have had a great experience in all areas of their education.

I am disappointed with BSE. My son loved school & loved to learn. He has always been advanced for his age but now he suddenly hates school and I think a large part of that is he does not get enough individualized attention. To have one teacher for a class of 30 does not provide each student with the individualized attention they need to gain confidence and enjoy learning. The students that goof around are given more attention in order to bring the class back to order and it really hurts the other children in the class. In addition, the way the teachers mark all over the paper when an answer is wrong or the work is messy is discouraging to the students. It is not just a note at the top but it is written largely over half of the assignment and makes the child feel bad, instead of helping them to learn from it. Also, the current bus situation is ridiculous. My son has learned horrible things from other kids on the bus and how they expect a bus driver to prevent such behavior when they have to drive is beyond me. A teacher should be on the bus when they leave the school to control these issues and prevent this behavior.

We came to Skoff after moving to the Romeoville area two years ago. Two of our four children receive special services and that department has done nothing but help our children. Mrs. Doyle in the office is able to answer anything and knows many of the kids personally which helped my kids overcome being shy and fit in.

My Daugher has been going there since the school began. She has been treated with respect and the staff has been helpful and supportive through her growing years. The down side has seen three groups of principals change since 5 years. They have to challenge the kids more, give more homework and improve the reading and math standars to help improve the basic educations kids get. Maybe a after school reading, math club run by teachers and parents would help .

I had two students enrolled in skoff. My son's progress actually declined when enrolled in Skoff. I have since pulled him from the district and feel he has shown dramatic improvement since being pulled from the district. I continually requested help for my son, but was given the runaround similar to the other parent listed here.

I am a parent of two students at Skoff, and I am very disappointed in the curriculum at this school. My son went to kindergarten at another school and he was on a second grade level. Unfortunatley, I moved and now they attend Skoff. They are both having problems with spelling and and reading. This seems to be a common problem with students in this school and other schools in this district. I have requested help in the form of resource teachers and tutors but I just get the run around. I am very upset because my children did not have any problems until they came to this school and now I have to seek outside help for them just to get them back up to speed. The teachers are okay but the way they teach has just confused my kids. There's no incentive for getting good grades.

I'm a parent of two students at Skoff, and I am very satisfied with the teachers and staff. Very professional and supportive. My daughter needed extra support in reading, and I felt the staff really went the extra yard. She has improved thanks to them!

I am very much impressed with the school. Their is a lot of learning and work done in the classroom versus too much homework.
