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.

    The teachers are wonderful at this school. My child loves going to school and I am very welcome by the staff. The PTA is wonderful. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a school district.

    Mossville School is definetly a school that I feel is an execellent place for my children to go to school. The faculty and staff are caring and the student/parent support system is what a school should be. The principals are what a student needs to have. Mrs. Clary and Mrs. Geltmaker know the students names and most of the parents names as well. I could not ask for a better place for my grade school age child to get his education before going on to IVC High School.

    I have children that attend Mossville. I have attended also as a child. I love this school. Mossville is great school and welcomes everyone of every background!

    Great school. Any dedicated kid with average intelligence and supportive parents will thrive in this environment and get a great education. I can't say anything negative about the administration or the teaching staff they are all fair dedicated and experienced. The school has some diversity in it on a social-economic level and that is why you may see lower Average test scores than some other so-called 'better' schools but this Average does not truly reflect the actual education a dedicated student will get at Mossville. The environment is safe with very little disciplinary problems and the school provides very good extracurricular activities.

    This is a great school with caring teachers and a strong PTA. My son has loved every teacher he has had. I love the reading program they have that rewords students for the books they read.

  • (9 years ago)

    My son attends Mossville School as did I as a child. I absolutely love this school and would not send him anywhere else! The teachers and administration are wonderful. Keep up the good work!

    The PTA is very strong and provides many 'extras' for the school. Mrs. Wendy Clary the principal knows almost all the kids names and is a wonderful principal. Sports music and academics are all offered after school.
