    "My two daughters attended John Stewart and had a wonderful experience. Pros: It is a safe school with rare bullying or social issues. The faculty and staff seem to care for their students. The facility in excellent condition. The classrooms are based around a central library, which is a perfect layout that encourages reading. The change out of the principal in 2009 was a wonderful change. The past management was out of touch and in accessible to parents and students. The past two principals since have been excellent. Cons: The library is underfunded with staffing issues. The quality of curriculum delivery of the teachers were a hit and miss but no one was truly inept. There is little diversity in the staff, faculty, and student body. After first grade, I saw little parent volunteer work. Many of the children in the classes were clearly below reading and math standards perhaps because of poor parental involvement, our lower socio-economic status compared to Geneva & St. Charles, or a high teacher-student ratio. Your real worry should not be about John Stewart but the Middle School. We moved for the reason that our oldest was a year away from going to the struggling middle school."

    "Kaneland School District is behind the ball so to speak in regarding current best practice. 'Everyday math' is lacking and students do not master the basics, but have a little knoweldge of a lot. Leadership at all levels needs to be progressive and have vision."

    "We moved to Kaneland three years ago from St. Charles. We are very impressed with the school as a whole. I feel my children are getting a much better education at Kaneland. I know people think that the grading scale is too stiff, I think that it makes kids give it their all to 'earn' their honor roll status. I know numerous graduates of the other local districts that were straight A students in honor classes only to attend college to find out that they are average students at best. Most kids will do just enough to get by, especially when they are bright and it comes easy to them. My children work hard to get their A s. Reality is that if you are a C student, in other districts carrying 70 and 80%, you are failing at Kaneland!"
