our school is a piece of work mean it has diffrent values then you would this there it is not about grades but about you is cooler and has more control over the teachers as a student i have witnessed so much disrespect from both students and teacher as far as students go watch your mouths it is crazy what you say to the teacher and what u do in front of them teachers we really don't want to hear about your personal issues at school and if you don't want us to be getto stop teaching it to us do this and my be this place wont be such a prison

Not what it use to be...A far cry from it! It was a place to get a good education and structured discipline-now it is a shadow of both. With an administration that has the backbone of a willow tree. And their concern for students' afterschool activities is almost non-existent. I once came as soon as I could leave work and found the office closed(before 3:30). Since moved to Indiana and the school there are total different- starred schools with afterschool programs and administrator that stay to help supervise the building activites! All the new construction doesn't mean a thing unless there is a strong base to build on- Rickover no longer has that strong base. A pity for the teachers and children!

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.
