Open Quote Don't be fooled by any 5 star reviews. This is a horrible school that at most prepares the students to become a minimum wage workers. It's not enough to say "academically not challenging". It's just as bad as it gets. I don't know what exactly they teach, but I can tell you that my son who is a good student knows next to nothing!!! And repeatedly I got the impression that they don't care if the kids learn anything. I'm seriously worried about his performance in the 7th grade in a new school. At all cost I will try to avoid sending my younger child to this place. It's like giving up on him. This school academically sucks BIG time!!!! 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.

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.
