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 have an awsome staff. Our principal visits our classrooms regularly and includes pre-K to 5th grade in all the activities and awards given to the students. In other schools we at pre-school were treated as step children.

    I have had nothing but problems with this school. My daughter is constantly getting into fights with other children and there seems to be very little concern from teachers/other staff.

    i had a great experience in this school for my child they offered afterschool tutoring and the teachers were very interested in improving my sons school problems although they did seem a bit unorganized for the most part they were a pretty good school.
