Open Quote This is one of the better public school my kids have been to. I found the school to be clean and the principal very efficient at handling any discipline issues. I also noticed that the demographics here are slowly shifting here towards parents who either both have college/master's degrees or are professionally employed and value education (which is true of Algonquin/McHenry areas in the past 10 years); I noticed another parent had the same observations as here. I am surprised that this only has 3 stars ranking. I suspect that in a year or two, this school will be among the preferred elementary schools. My kids both still miss the school (we've now moved out of state) and I miss the nice neighborhood around the school, with its parks and trails. Close Quote

Open Quote A relatively new school in Algonquin. My daughter has been attending the school for a year now and we have been happy with the facility and more importantly with the principal (Ms. Ryan) and the teachers. The village of Algonquin itself is transitioning to a more white collar neighborhood and this is reflected in the demographics as well, at this school. I notice a lot of parents with graduate degrees and good education, taking interest in the PTA and other school related activities. The local parks are safe and well kept by the village as well, making it all the more convenient. If you plan to buy or rent in the local Algonquin Lakes neighborhood, this would be a good time, especially since there is still good supply of homes and low rates. The neighborhood is conveniently located for work in Barrington, IL and Schaumburg, and Elgin as well - Makes it an opitimum location for Work, & School. Overall, would definitely rank the school at a 4 for now and pehaps a 5, if they keep up the good work in the future. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
