Open Quote From K-3 our experience at this school was Great! The teachers truly cared about the students and their development and they kept the parents informed. However something happens when a child enters the 4th grade, the 2 teachers they have on staff are emotionally abusive to the children and dismissive to concerned parents. Especially the older teacher who constantly promotes her 25+ years of experience. These teachers seem to have a problem with minority kids that are highly intelligent and strong minded. They consistently tell these kids they are bad and separate these kids from the class and if they utter one word they do not like, each class they move their seat closer and closer to the door. These same children will consistently ask the teachers what they can do to rejoin the class and they disregard them and will keep them separated from the other students the whole school year, driving them to act out because they humiliate them and make them outcasts. These same 4th grades teachers lie on the children and claim they have done certain things in the classroom and will exaggerate things that happen to support their position. This has been going on for years and because of this the school has a revolving door of students. There have been complaints made to the Principal and the Network Chief and they have not investigated the Children's or the Parents concerns. As a Local School Council member I had the privilege of receiving emails and complaints from Parents that did not even know each other complain about these teachers and crying and upset that they had no where to turn. I ended up taking my child out of the school mid year and put him in Private School, but these Parents again had no where to turn and feared the damage this would do to their children. After I took my child out of this school I had to put my child in therapy because he thought he was a bad person and his self esteem was low, but now he is thriving and is in an environment that supports him and believes in him.

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.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
