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.

    The students at this school lack total and complete respect for teachers other students administrators and themselves. The administration does NOTHING to control the student discipline and dis-empowers teachers to do their job. They give them all kinds of busy work (common core requirements constant paperwork etc.) but does nothing for them to support them when it comes to student discipline. Students regularly say to teachers "F___ You" when they receive the most basic of requests. The administration's response "what are you NOT doing in your class that is CAUSING this student to behave in such a manner?" In other words it is all the teachers fault and with this strategy if you can call it that the administration can continue to go on thinking there is no problem. By far the worst problem is the administration's choice to keep students in this school that are clearly dangerous unsafe and mentally unstable. This is a total disregard for the safety and security of students and staff. There have been past incidences of teachers and students getting injured because of this and the administration just sweeps it under the rug. Do not have your child attend here!

    Not what it use to be...A far cry from it! It was a place to get a good education and structured discipline-now it is a shadow of both. With an administration that has the backbone of a willow tree. And their concern for students' afterschool activities is almost non-existent. I once came as soon as I could leave work and found the office closed(before 3 30). Since moved to Indiana and the school there are total different- starred schools with afterschool programs and administrator that stay to help supervise the building activites! All the new construction doesn't mean a thing unless there is a strong base to build on- Rickover no longer has that strong base. A pity for the teachers and children!
