• Annually, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) releases a School Report Card for every school in the State of Illinois. 2018 was the first year of the state's newly designed School Report Card, which features new data points and that aligns to Illinois' Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Plan requirements.  Additional information about ESSA and the school designation process are provided in the links below.  There are four possible school designations:

    • Exemplary
    • Commendable
    • Underperforming
    • Lowest Performing

    No schools received a rating in 2020-2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and incomplete data that resulted. For information about Illinois' ESSA Plan and report card metrics, click below:
