We currently have three children at Wild Rose and one will start Kindergarten there next year. This is a great school with an INCREDIBLE principal. I have small children at home and right now have a exceedingly hectic lifestyle. I have not had a lot of time to be involved, but nevertheless, our family counts our blessings everyday of being able to be attend this school. I am continually amazed at the work my children are bringing home. I have a child transitioning to Middle School next year. The district/school goes out of their way to make this process a smooth transition. While no educational institution is perfect it is clear to me that Wild Rose is continually striving towards perfection, always willing to adapt and change to what is proven to work in education. If you are considering a move to the district and schools play a factor in that decision, you will not be disappointed with Wild Rose. I wish every child in America had the opportunity to be a part of a community like this one.

Found this page while looking back to see if this school existed and I am excited to find that it still does. I attended this elementary school back in '98 and can say that this was quite the experience (from what I remember). Provided a great base education and a ground for my future successes. I am currently a student of James Madison University college and I recommend this school to all parents looking for a great education for their children.

Energetic and compassionate principal as well as staff. Great parent involvement. A true sense of community.

This is our third year at Wild Rose, just when I think there is no possible way our next year's teacher can be as good as the last - I am pleasantly surprised! The teachers and staff have the ability to enrich those kids that stand out and encourge the ones that are on the 'shy side'. KUDOS to everyone at the school, especially the art, music, and PE techers that don't get have the credit that they're due! An excellent and attentive staff has always answered my questions and concerns quickly and the teachers I have encoutered are the true 'nights in shining armour!'

Wild Rose is a great school, with some terrific teachers. As with any school, there are small 'quirks' one might find, but I am very pleased with the level of education my child is receiving. If you compare this district to others across the country, you'll find that they all spend equal amount per student, but the scores, parent involvement, and safety of the children do not meet the same level. The district is a very wealthy district, which helps, however credit should be given to these teachers for working on constantly improving the school and the curriculum.

I have had two children either attending in the past or currrently attending Wild Rose. The teachers leave the class rooms unattended to talk on their cell phones and gossip in the hallways, I have reported to both the district and the principal and they are unable to control the teachers they run free.

Wild Rose is such a warm environment. The principal and staff are always available and so many moms & dads volunteer. I have a 1st and 4th grader at WR and they seem to be getting a fantastic education. The kids are polite and well behaved the majority of the time. It is a friendly school and my children are happy there!

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.
