Something is seriously wrong with your current rating 5/10. You rated this school 10/10 for several years and 9/10 for the last 3 years, now 5/10?. If you check school digger, it is currently ranked 133/2100 illinois elementary schools. Something is either wrong with your data or formula. I have 2 kids in this schools and moved to my current home few years ago because of this school. It has excellent staff and teachers. Academically is also very sound. way ahead of many DuPage county schools. I am an engineer and believe me I look at the curriculum in detail especially STEM related subjects. The school also has a very respectful accelerated program starting in 3rd grade. My wife and I are extremely happy with how the school has handled the whole COVID19 situation and very thankful to the staff and teachers for going above and beyond what they have signed up for. The irony is that Dujardin Elementary is graded 9/10 but ranked 150/2100 on schooldigger.Not sure if this is all due to some report that the school needed to submit within a certain timefrane but is still overdue. A 5/10 grade gives the absolute opposite picture of what Erickson Elementary is and has always been.Current Parent. C.
I worried switching my child from a strong Catholic school in the area and I have been so very pleased. I have been so impressed with the quality of teachers, the leadership team, and the overall excellence of the school.
Erickson is an outstanding, award-winning school. My children have attended for 6 years. The Greatschools shows a rating of 9 out of 10. The test scores tab above shows that Erickson ranks between 96 to 99% on the ISATs in nearly every category. It is quite obvious that the posters who stated that Erickson is below expectations are either posting on the wrong school or have some other grudge.
We thought that this school/district was great. My kids were doing excellent in school. We thought they are advanced. Until, we compared the level of education with other school district (Naperville-203/204and Hinsdale-181). We did extensive research and discovered that the reason my kids were doing excellent is because the level of education was not up to par. So we moved to Hinsdale-181 district and we could CLEARLY see the difference. We discovered that doing excellent in district-13 is doing average in 181/203 school district. I know that every child is different and every experience is unique, but there is clearly a noticeable difference in the level of education. Now that my kids go to 181 and I have time to compare the schools, I can not give any higher ranking than I have. My advise to parents is that they should get more actively involved and bring in measures that are been put in place in 181.
