We had a horrible experience with one of the first grade teachers. There were way to many problems at this school. The principal was very laid back and some of the teachers were out of touch. They denied many problems, such as bullying. They gave a citizenship medal to a child who was bullying other students and who said he was in a gang. My special needs child missed lunch not once but twice. When I confronted the staff about my child not getting a lunch, one staff member rudely said that my son ate a lunch. I had to show proof on the school's website that his lunch card was not swiped on that day. Also, I would've liked to see more writing throughout the year. At the end of the year, my son's writing journals were basically blank. There were way too many word searches coming home. I would've liked to see more projects or creative work. The exact same writing assignment came home four different times. It seems as if the bare minimum is done and nothing more. Moving my child out of this school has been the best decision that I've ever made. On a positive note, the kindergarten teacher was amazing! After that, move your child to another school asap!

I went to this schhol as a child. Now my children have been there. This is a small town school with small personable classes. The teachers are very knowledgable and love to interact with the kids. They seem to make learning fun.

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.
