This school is amazing! - we put 4 kids through it and our oldest was there since day one when it opened until our last finished in 2017! The administration, staff, counselors, teachers, and amenities and programs the school does each year for the families and children are amazing. All 4 of my kids walked to school as we lived only 2-3 blocks away! We got to even know the crossing guards and many families and teachers. It consistently outperforms all the other schools in the district and area in academics. This also applies to the middle school it feeds, Bednarcik. The librarian, art, music, and pe teachers and extracurricular programs are also great - even there is a program where they invite parents in to read or explain art in conjunction with the art teacher, they put on at least 2 excellent musicals per year, they do physical fitness fundraisers, and the music teacher works very hard as well to make it a responsible, important and fun experience for all! Daddy Daughter dance, school carnival/fundraiser with games and activities, and much more! I volunteered my company's resources and time at the annual STEM celebration night each year as well where they encourage kids to get into careers in math and science doing demos, fun activities and bringing in area experts and scientists from Fermilab and the like doing cool experiments for the kids and families. Highly recommend District 308 and this school as well as Bednarcik the middle school it feeds into just down the road.

Superb. The school and staff are excellent. My older children attended school at a nearby, more highly rated district. We felt our children got an equivalent education here...without having to spend a million dollars on a home.
