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 have nothing but good things to say about this school. I've never met more dedicated and creative teachers. The principal Ms Kenner is absolutely inspired and inspiring. The staff obviously works well together as a team and loves what they do and it reflects in the students. It's definitely a school that works hard to help each individual student to succeed academically and develop critical thinking. Every grade level has a strong team of teachers. These kids are definitely college-bound.

    Excellent school. Very personalized learning. Excellent teachers and principal who have a very unique way of getting the kids to learn. However they don't just teach the kids they care for the kids. It is alot of caring and loving in this school and they truelly want to see the children grow. My dauughter went into this school way below average and now she is average and on her way to being above average. Great School!!
