    "I disagree with the past statements. The school has made progress however there is a high percentage of students who are English language learners and special education. They have the highest percentage in all mchenry schools. I have had concerns with my daughter and she has received a lot of support services. The teachers are always listening to my concerns, advice, and communicate with me on a regular basis. I feel they have went above and beyond to give my daughter the best education possible. Great teachers!!"

    "Horribly outdated curriculum, very unorganized, a handful of quality teachers with a pair of principals that lack the leadership and knowledge needed to turn the school in the right direction. Worst school in Illinois? No. Worst school in McHenry? Definitely. Send your kids to Landmark if you can!"

    "I think the homework needs to be cut back somewhat. I understand the concept of homework but my son doesnt get home until 4:15 and then he has to eat dinner and has tons of homework. After being at school all day and then coming home and having to do all that homework he is so worn out and has no down time. Im not saying dont give homework but maybe just cut down alittle so these kids have alittle down time to be kids!"

    "Although my child had a great interaction with her teachers at this school, the overall satisfaction is very poor. There seems to be a lack of communication with the parents. The Secretaries in the office seem to know more than the Principal and Assistant Principal. They seem to turn down parent involvement in many cases and have given very negative input to the PTO. The meetings seem to become more a battle between the parents and the admin. In my years there, this "new" admin is a downhill slide for the school. The previous admin was more focused on the education of the child. Since the promotion of the Principal she has focused less on reading which is in serious trouble. Many of the people that have voiced their opinions have been eliminated. To have a school that puts more emphasis on a behavior program rather than the updating of the school library is a shame. If I was in charge and given $ to update the library I would take as much advantage of that as was possible. It seems that the PTO's plan was put to the wayside and all you heard from admin was about the STAR program, it's toys and end of the year party. What are we teaching our kids. S Such a shame."

    "I would like to see the reading scores come up. I recieved a letter saying that they have not achieved the minimum AYP proficiency target in all subgroups in Reading. Under the No Child Left Behind Act provides us the option to transfer our child to another public school within the district with transportation provided by the district. However, at this time they do not have a school within the district to which your child can transfer. No schools in neighboring districts have agreed to take students at this time. So at this time we are stuck with leadership who can not produce."
