Best Public Schools in Posen, IL


The city of Posen, Illinois is home to two elementary schools: Gordon School and Posen Elementary School. These schools serve a predominantly minority student population, with high percentages of Hispanic and African American students. Both schools face challenges, including relatively high chronic absenteeism rates and academic performance that lags behind state averages, particularly in mathematics.

Posen-Robbins Education Service District 143-5 oversees these two schools. Gordon School stands out with the lowest student-to-teacher ratio (11:1) in the district, suggesting smaller class sizes and potentially more individualized attention for students. In contrast, Posen Elementary School has a higher percentage of African American students (37.83%) compared to Gordon School (16.03%), indicating differences in the demographics of the school communities.

Academically, both schools struggle, with proficiency rates on state assessments falling below the state averages in English Language Arts and mathematics. However, Gordon School outperforms the district and state in Grade 3 ELA and Math proficiency. The high percentages of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, over 84% at both schools, suggest that these schools serve economically disadvantaged communities, which may require additional resources and support to address the unique needs of their students.
