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.

    We love the opportunities available to all at Lisle Junior High! Teachers are very involved and genuinely care about my child's progress and potential. Both the principal and vice principal are very accessible and both are very intune with the students and their activities. Love this school!!

    I am a seventh grade student and saw two kids fighting like throwing punches in the hallway last week. It is unbeleivable that no teacher was in the hallway watching - somebody is really going to get hurt. Funny thing is that both kids hardly got a punishment.

    My son is currently in this school (2013) and is fortunately graduating in the spring. We will celebrate when he moves on because this school has been a horrible experience. What he has seen is inexcusable - the bullying that goes on every day is sickening. Teachers have witnessed and don't do anything they seem to be afraid of certain kids. If I could give a negative star I would.

    My daughter has had a great experience at Lisle Junior High. The teachers are encouraging and very accessible. The work is challenging particularly in language arts and literature and the school is equipped with the latest technology including a fantastic computer lab. There is a feeling of community among the kids and parents and unlike at some larger schools the kids get a chance to participate in sports or activities even if they aren't top athletes or musicians.
