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.

    this is the worst school you could send your kid to i wish you good luck to any parent who has to deal with this school and the bad teachers here it is more like a prison center then a school for kids

  • (4 years ago)

    This school was just built a few years ago and is already an embarassment to the community. The prinicpal staff is too strict and has a complete lack of respect for these kids. Even the well behaved kids are spoken to as though they have no value. The tolerance level is at zero. I thought that we were raising our kids to learn from the mistakes they made. They are stunting the growth and forcing the kids to break the rules to have any fun. No middle ground at all here. Way to go RLMS. My child will be homeschooled until High School. Good luck to anyone who is forced geographicaly to make their child attend this school. Here the importance of discipline far exceeds education.
