The leadership in this school is less desired. I would not recommend any child attending this school!

One of the issues here is that parents don't report when there is an issue with their child. I know as fact, that the principal addresses each and every issue. This is especially true when bullying is involved. I would make sure to get the whole story before passing judgement.

My daughter started attending SJH in the 6th grade. Prior to transferring to SJH, she attended East Moline public schools. And overall I was VERY satisfied w/ the E.M. school district, until she enrolled at Glenview. Since enrolling @ SJH, overall I am pleased with the quality of the education she has received. Although she hit a few bumps in the road early on, the faculty and staff never gave up on her. The teachers, principle and counselor are all inspiring. And I wish they knew how significant they have been in helping to mold my daughter into the more mature young lady I have the honor of raising!!

Silvis Junior High adequately prepares students for attending high school. It has a well established music program with an excellent reputation. Sports are available for 5-8th grades. Parental involvement is getting better.

The band program is good (nice teacher), however the school no longer offers art. I think this will be resolved soon, but it is unfortunate that students are missing out on this valuable subject!

Silvis has a great education program for a small school. It is a school that is concerned about the education of the children and puts that first. The leadership from the Superintendent on down is great and the teachers are also excellent. Silvis has worked hard to keep its extra-curricular programs during a very difficult financial time so that the students would receive a total experience during their elementary and junior high school years. Silvis School District #34 is committed to the whole child.

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.
