My school is named Wredling Middle School, It is located in Saint Charles, Illinois (IL) Iv'e been going to this school for a year now and it has been one of the best schools I've ever been to. This school has amazing teachers and staff, The after school activities are just as good. There are many sports for girls and boys including: Track, Basketball, Volleyball, Wrestling and many more. The school founder is still alive and is a veteran of WWII, Every year he comes to the school and celebrates his birthday, He is very nice to the students that attend Wredling Middle School. On the bulling side there is many bullies in this school who make fun of people based on how they look and what they like, Myself am being bullied and went report them. They seem like they do a real good job of dealing with the situations but with small or moderate situations they just let it go and tell you to avoid/ignore the bully. This concludes my review of this school. -Student who attends the school

Great school with wonderful staff. A bit mired in NCLB special ed stuff, as are all schools in the US. But the staff does their best.

Wredling Middle School has a great outlook on topics such as bullying; they say they have a zero tolerance on several topics. However when a student is bullied or has trouble and needs help the schools only solution is a hands off do nothing approach. We have a daughter who is being bullied and we have witness and proof. When we met with the school, they were very nice and said of course they will look into this and then nothing happens. Theft in this school is out of control. Bullying is out of control. Fund raising is the only item this school cares about and they will not get another dollar of our money.

My son and daughter both went to Wredling and we didn't have a good experience there at all. Teachers were not open to suggestions and weren't available to speak to me when I need to have a conference with them. Glad we are done with Middle School.

Both of my daughters attended Wredling Middle School and I was very dissapointed with the school's preformance. Some of the school's rules seem strange and don't seem to make sense to me. I am happy to say that my children are done with Wredling and were both pleased with the preformance of Saint Charles East High School.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
