    "Our family moved here from another state at the beginning of the school year. The staff and teachers at Sanborn really made my children feel very welcome. The school is constantly trying new things to improve the learning experience for the children. Absolutely no school is perfect anywhere but our family has been truly happy with the education that our children are receiving."

    "This school is awful, if a student is well behave, follow rules and respectful then they are seen by their teacher as meek. Good student who are above average are not valued, students who bullies are not held accountable. Report bullying is a joke the assistance principle tells you will investigate the bullying then never follow up with the parent of the victim and refuse tell the parent what if any punishment was given to the bully. Also have witness a teacher behaving unprofessionally by screaming at students."

    "Academic program is weak for well-behaved students. Foul language and bullying is rampant. Little to nothing done to correct the behavior. Using the F* word is seen as a non-event and not worth calling attention to. Spanish speaking population is given more attention than English speaking. Shame. A few years back, District 15 was ranked as one of the top districts in Illinois. Not the case at this school. Teachers, even the better ones, have no qualms yelling at classes " you are the worst class I have ever had" on a daily basis. Again, in this environment, with a well-behaved child on the upper end of the learning curve and a quiet nature....this is not the place for such a student. Ask teachers how to challenge your well-behaved, well-studied child and you will be told not to rock the boat by the staff and administrator. You will scare them and seen as a threat simply because you want to challenge your child to learn more. They are more interested in keeping the peace with the troublemakers than they are in educating the students. You'd think it was a disciplinary center rather than an educational institution with the way they won't challenge students to learn more. Sad. Very sad"

    "My son attended k-6th grades here. His k. teacher is one of the best teachers I've ever seen. The quality of his other teachers has been a mixed bag. The not-so-great ones lost their tempers with the kids, didn't handle discipline very effectively, etc. The band and orchestra programs are excellent, but the art and PE classes leave something to be desired due to the staff. The school offers opportunities for kids who are reading and doing math at above-grade levels to take classes a year ahead of their actual year in school, which challenged my son. There were some issues with the principal not taking the bullying of my son seriously, even tho' the school claims to have a "zero-tolerance policy". Without witnesses, children can get away with punching, kicking, and hitting other kids. Overall, the school is good, but the discipline issues were a black cloud over his education."
