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.

    My child attended ECE program here and we achieved outstanding gains during those two years. Small community school very caring environment. However the budget cuts did affect the school. Very active PTA and good parent involvement. Good principal. Generally very good experience. Would be great to have more field trips though.

    This school sucks! My children were very unhappy with the teachers/staff. Never again will I ever step foot into that school.
