    Great educators and challenging curriculum based on your child's ability! Love the teachers and staff! Very satisfied with District 165 to say the least!!!

    Fantastic school! I am very impressed by the curriculum and the achievement my kids have achieved and it shows on their SAT's!!! Don't be fooled by the over all school ranking. This includes stats from all children within the districts population including ESL/English second language students with disabilities and also students from low social economic status. However this has not affected my children's education. It has only enriched it! The classes are tiered into different levels of learning so that everyone is challenged effectively!!! My children test out well in the upper 98th-99% in the state. That says it all! Look out college here we come! Very competitive education!!!

    It is a great place for my kids to learn and grow. The staff is experienced and dedicated and my kids are happy and safe there.

    This school is getting better but the education the kids are getting is still subpar. Walking through the school I feel as if I'm in a prison and I know for a fact the kids feel that way too. Our district finances are getting better thanks to Mrs. Damish and our board but there is so much more that needs to be done.
