This school is okay. It's a little behind on teaching. The northern schools are way ahead! some may say it's because of it being a small town/school but that's just an excuse.

S.A.G.S. has always been an AWESOME school for k-8. All 3 of my oldest boys have went there, and 1 is still attending. Although he is in Special Ed, he still gets the best schooling there is. I am very thankful to the teachers that my children have/had throughout the years they have/had attended. I know that I have dealth w/ the school on many occasions in the past, and have only had 1 bad experience and that was almost 10 yrs ago. My only wish is that the teachers would email you like they used to; in order to help know what's going on w/your child! Mary K.

This is a very friendly and obediant school. All well mannered kids and the teachers are your friends as well. They care about you and your families, and not just your child learning. The teachers really listen about special needs or attentions your child needs. They are also very observant in your childs work and behavior. They have an outstanding band program. The very best grade school band I've ever heard. Extremely well behaved kids. The education program is leveled for students understanding(higher for more advanced kids) the education is always in conjunction with next years classes for preparedness. Everyone shows much respect for the other. Students and teachers alike. As a parent of students at St. Anne and a former student myself, I rate this school as the best in the county and one of the highest in the state.

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.
