My son and I actually chalked up 3rd grade as a bum school year. He struggled with everything and I didn't know how bad until the parent teacher conference. Why? Because everything was electronic. Nothing came home with my son everything was done online. The teacher expected them to submit all their homework online. We struggled to make sure we had access to everything and to make sure we checked the webpage. Forth grade was much better but we still struggled a lot. They demand a lot of parent involvement which is great but if you are a single, working Mom its really hard to find the time they are asking for. The student counselor is great and worked hard to help my son with his transition issues.

This is a great school with a highly educated staff who is dedicated to providing the best education for each student. They are responsive to parents, and in turn, parents are very involved in making the home-school connection strong. A fabulous administration also adds to making the two years at this school a memorable and positive experience.

My school is designated as a Blue Ribbon Award Winning School by the national government. The diverse population of students is high achieving on all standardized tests, and provides an enriched learning environment which focused on the individual child. The parent community is highly supportive and involved in our school. This year our fourth grade students will be learning Spanish for the first time. The third grade will begin Spanish in the 2014-2015 school year. The staff is highly educated, which many Nationally Board Certified Teachers, with most teachers also holding masters degrees and years of teaching experience.

I loved this school, it was a great way to prepare for Daniel Wright Junior High.

The administration of District 103 is a joke in a variety of ways. I'll just pick 2 to start. The schools refuse to send home important information with your child. They expect you to be clairvoyant & know when/where to look for it on their dismal website. On the other hand, they send home marketing promos from 3rd-party, for-profit orgs constantly, probably at last 1/week. Sometimes I wonder if my children would get a better eduction if I sent them to the local mall each day. I get more junk-mail thru my children than I do via the post office. The yearly registration forms are a hoot too. They also refuse to send those to you but they do ask about your 3rd-grader's menstrual period or whether they have cancer or take steroids. The teachers? They're okay. I wonder how they deal with the lousy administration.

This school maintains exceptionally high standards in education - like the rest of the SD 103 schools.

Along with the entire 103 District, these schools are exceptional. This is not just your average school district. Also a very small community with strong parent involvement. Wonderful schools to be a part of.
