We moved to Wheaton 2 years ago. We have a son that goes to Hubble. He has been on the high Honor Roll since we moved here. The teachers we have been in contact with have all been great at teaching, communicating, & interacting with us. Hubble is a new school & we are very impressed with the leadership of the school. The principal is on top of everything!! We have had a feel for sports at the school as well & are pleased at how things are run & a winning season as well! We would highly recommend Hubble Middle School if you are new to the area.

I believe that Hubble is an okay school, good teaching, but it doesnt really have products that everyday college students use. They only teach kids how amazing they are and how much stuff they have.Overall, hubble isnt the best school around.

The new building is fitting of the great teaching staff that was at the old Hubble. We have a great new library, and all of the classrooms are more functional.

I graduated from Hubble with the class of 2011, and it was a decent school. Most of the teachers I had were good, but some could use some help. The Science Department always had the bad teachers, and I was really underprepared when I took A Phys/Chem. Also, the building is falling apart, but all the room was great. At WWSHS, the classrooms are alot smaller, and that is one of the downsides of the new middle school. Also, having the 3 large gyms helped distribute the classes. It will be a sad day when they destroy the building, but it will also be good. Jason

My last child made it out of Hubble this year and I can't be more pleased to never have to go back. My personal experience has been one that I hope other parents never have to experience. District 200 has drug their feet securing building a new school for our children. This situation should have been complete long ago. Ms. Sullivan is an asset to Hubble. She does want to help the parent and child.

I had two students at Hubble and found that there were some wonderful teachers on staff at the school. The building is a disgrace to the school system. I find it inexcusable that a school district such as 200 could not come to a resolution and have a new school already built. I believe the discipline is unevenly distributed. Bullying is still a problem, but the fear of coming forward makes it worse.

I am a current student at Hubble Middle school, and i think its has good education. Also there are special programs for people who need extra help and there are programs for kids who move faster than others. Though the building is old it has a lot of space to be comfortable so were not packed like sardines. I don't think parents should be able to say bad things Hubble unless they went through it!

This school stresses responsibility; however, some teachers do not seem invested in the best interests of the children individually. Children can feel 'lost in the croud' due to the size of the school. If your child enjoys academics and is above achievement, and is an independant worker they will do very well and get a lot out of this school. I your child is not academically inclined they will be lost in the shuffle.

As a former student of Hubble Middle School, I can say with absolute certainty that, during the time I was there (2000-03), the school had outlived its life expectancy by a good 20 years. You could literally see parts of the school falling apart. While the facilities were less than stellar, the staff for the most part did an excellent job preparing the students for high school. In particular, the Fast Paced Language Arts (FPLA) class for students gifted in langauge arts prepares its students for Honors English at the high school level. Similarily, the Fast Paced Math and Advanced Math programs. The only department that was lacking in the area of preparation was the Science department. In particular, students were unprepared for Honors Physics and Chemistry if they did not have more than a basic understanding of the topics at the start of the unit. 3/5 stars.

Hubble is a great school. I am a current 8th grade student, and the facilities are great! Because of the building being so old, many students don't like it...but it is great to have all of the facilities!

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.
