My daughter began 2nd grade at Illinois school last year. I absolutely love this school! The curriculum is great. My daughter attended a catholic school for pre-k and 1st grade and I must say that she learned a lot more at Illinois school in one year than she did two years at the private school.

It seems that the administration changes each year. Many of the good teachers have left, however there are still a few hanging in there. The principal talks down to the parents. What happened to this wonderful school?

My daughter is a middle school student at Illinois and I couldn't be happier about the experience she is having there. She is thriving academically and socially. Her teachers constantly provide her with opportunities to spread her wings and challenge herself. My daughter is very shy. Illinois' size and ...  Read more

There are art and music programs available on a limited basis, but there are very few extracurricular activities. Most extracurricular activities are in the arts areas. Parental involvement is above average, but as with any school, could stand improvement. Principal Walker is very involved and aware.
