This school is one of the best schools I have ever gone to. The teachers are very helpful and understanding. Everyone at this school is very polite and generous. Everyone at this school treats each other like family. The classes are very understandable and easy. The coaches do vary sometimes between years but that's what makes it even more fun. We have a great music department along with art. We have French and Spanish. This school is absolutely amazing!

I graduated from this school district and now have a child attending. I and most of my classmates have Bachelor's Degrees. I'm almost completed with my Master's Degree. My child is doing extremely well earning all A's and B's. Great community.

I am a grandparent of several present students and three who attended this institution,two have doctorates and one a masters degree. Not bad for rr.However the present parenting philosophy is not education,but baby sitting and athletics. Schools are for academic purposes and nothing else.There are too many days off and shortened days when there is so much knowledge that is available. I suggest less time off and more academia.As to racism--it is none existent in this community. I grew up in chicago and that is where race is a problem,not here.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE 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.

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.
