Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT)

In 2013-2014 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.

    We moved to this community 3 years ago and I am so glad we did! The school district is extraordinary and community programs like Teen Turf make this town really special. Where else can a parent feel so welcome having lunch with their child visiting during recess and volunteering in various roles? The PTO sponsors meaningful shows and other events while the administration is known for thinking outside the box to support the students teachers and families they serve. Thank you Amboy!
