This school is pretty nice. The teachers are kind and understanding but also make you focus and work, which is a good and essential thing. The related arts rotation is amazing, and the physical education is very good. The principal is nice, but hardcore. He also really wants the students to be successful. It is a very nice and safe school!

First of all she cares about the students, you are wrong. The IDs can be annoying but you'd feel differently if you're kid was killed in a shooting. The word of the day quizes are not only expanding our vocabulary but they count towards a grade, they aren't hard so they help you boost your grade. The teachers here really care, the students want to do well, the staff is there for you. Its one of the safest schools in Lake County. Its a good school because our principal cares about the students and their safety and their learning. Just today she said we cant have ipods in class because its disrupting our learning. I know she wants higher test scores like every principal, but I feel like she also cares about the students. She sometimes makes me mad, but she is a good principal because she cares.

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.
