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.

    At this school very low expectations are kept from the students in an acedemic sense. Homework is a rare instance. They rarely if ever have any projects or field trips. Furthermore apart from a FEW people of the entire school staff (the persons in the office are also GRACIOUS) I did not have a favorable experience with them. There seems to be a sort of prejudice. Everyone is not treated equally and many teachers are very unhappy with their teaching responsibilities. In other words there is zero dedication. I would also like to add I do not like how they handle the drop-off process. There is close to no help from the personnel available. Young children have a difficult time getting out and nobody comes to aid even after noticing that help is needed. I am unsure about whether they may have a rule about it. However sometimes they have everyone hovering around one car chatting along with helping holding up traffic for no real reason.

    I would not recommend this school if you want your child to learn English properly. They cater to the school's majority. I have met with the principal who seems to need diversity or cultural training. She is very ignorant of those who are bilingual and bi-cultural. My daughter will be going to private school until we move.
