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.

    I love hadley. I am a curent 8th grader. It allows both parents and students to interact at the school. The teachers are great. They have really good curriculum. I love it here at Hadley.

    Great school however at maxed-out capacity. More space is needed to accomodate enrollment growth and continue providing great quality of teaching and diverse activities. The school provides expanded curriculum and special attention for gifted students. This enhances the school performance in an already high achieving district.

    The comfort and activities Hadley Junior High offers to both children and parents gives all the advantages of being a Hadley parent. I have a 7th grader attending Hadley and a 1st grader attending Churchill and each day both my children wake up ready to go to school with a smile. The after-school activities and the issues of Hadley Happenings let us keep up with our childrens life and provide numerous amounts of information on how we can get more involved. All I wish for is that schools like Hadley should keep prospering so our children recieve even better success in school life than they do already. We absolutely love this school and all schools in District#41!
