Community Rating & Reviews

    Erickson is an outstanding award-winning school. My children have attended for 6 years. The Greatschools shows a rating of 9 out of 10. The test scores tab above shows that Erickson ranks between 96 to 99% on the ISATs in nearly every category. It is quite obvious that the posters who stated that Erickson is below expectations are either posting on the wrong school or have some other grudge.

    We thought that this school/district was great. My kids were doing excellent in school. We thought they are advanced. Until we compared the level of education with other school district (Naperville-203/204and Hinsdale-181). We did extensive research and discovered that the reason my kids were doing excellent is because the level of education was not up to par. So we moved to Hinsdale-181 district and we could CLEARLY see the difference. We discovered that doing excellent in district-13 is doing average in 181/203 school district. I know that every child is different and every experience is unique but there is clearly a noticeable difference in the level of education. Now that my kids go to 181 and I have time to compare the schools I can not give any higher ranking than I have. My advise to parents is that they should get more actively involved and bring in measures that are been put in place in 181.

    Erickson is a terrific school!!! The entire District 13 is outstanding!!! And when your child needs more of a challenge they put them in Advanced classes. And advanced in the advanced as well if needed. My children are working out of books that are 2 years ahead of the rest. So the previous review that said "was to easy" for their child well they obviously are leaving a review on the wrong school. And by the way......too easy...is spelt with 2 o's in the context that they were trying to write. Maybe the person writing the review should take some time and attend one of the Grammar lessons at the school. LOL

    My kids really enjoy going to school to learn at Erickson. I feel the teachers are top notch and have the best interest of the child. The teachers are very approachable and will answer all questions. The principal is always visible and the kids enjoy that. Could not have asked for a better experience so far as I have 2 more kids left to attend.

    I am truly happy with my children at erickson elementary school. The administration is top notch as well as the teachers. The test scores are amazing. When we decided to move we moved to district 13 just so my children would go to Erickson school. I am so happy with the education that children are getting.

    The school program and faculty is TOP notch! The Admin is SO involved with the students and parents. The teachers are wonderful but what makes this school stand out is the parent participation! As far as the previous review (work to easy..) They obviously have no idea what they are talking about! Look at the testing results and the state/distric averages. Erickson is is a fantastic school!

    We have attended school for 6 years. It has been outstanding!! All the way from the Principal to the Aides. The staff at Erickson is welcoming caring and concerned about all children who attend. The quality of the academic programs are fabulous and the teachers are excited about each school year. The school does provide a music and art program. They do promote sport activities through the local park district. Just a great place to have your children learn!! So come on in and join the fun.
