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.

    I'm very happy with the education my children are receiving at Braceville Elementary. All of the teachers really go above and beyond to try to help their students. And I can't say enough good things about living in such a small community. Most class sizes are around 14 students! With only one class per grade the students really get to know each other and form a strong bond. Even with the option to move to another district we will be staying here!

    I am so disappointed in this school. They pick certain children to watch and pounce on every chance they get. The new Principal does not care at all about the children she is more concerned about her power kick she has been on since day one. would not recommend this school unless your child is perfect because they do not know how to deal with ANYTHING out of the ordinary..

    I actually had to move last year and i moved to stay in the district. This is the best school. The teachers and staff care for each and every student and go above and beyond to help them learn.

    The only good thing about this school is the Principal.. ....the teachers are more interested in your childs personal life it seems than about their education!!!
