My child started in district 81 in 4th grade after attending Chicago public schools. In Chicago she was labeled special ed, put into an all inclusive Special Ed class. When she started at Washington, she was at a first grade level in reading and math. The schools both Washington and Lincoln mainstreamed her into regular classrooms. By the time she was graduating 8th grade, she had been removed from special education, was invited into the IMSA Fusion program for Math and Science, had been on the honor roll for 4 years straight, received an Educational Academic Achievement award from the White House and tested and was placed into all AP and Honors classes in high school. Schools don't get any better then that, except when you add on all the arts and music programs and after school activities, they do!

It's great. It has great activities for students who are a smarter than their other classmates. It's perfect for me. I go to advanced subjects and it's a challenge but I am learning.

Don't judge our school based on one unhappy parent who left a very slanderous comment. This school has made great strides to correct the errors of the past. We have improved our test scores and now rank 2nd among the public schools that feed into our high school district. There is a negative image of Lincoln that no longer reflects the truth.

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.
