Dean Street receives exemplary rating from State

We kicked off November with some very exciting news. Our Superintendent, Dr. Moan, came to our school to share that Dean Street Elementary earned an EXEMPLARY rating from the State of Illinois, as published by the Illinois Report Card. This is the top rating a school can earn and puts us in the top 10% of elementary schools across the state.

To earn this rating takes a collective team effort and we would not have been able to do it without a school district that supports us by providing quality resources and professional development, dedicated staff members who work so hard every day to give kids what they need, students who have a growth mindset/"Never Give Up!" and supportive families who help reinforce the importance of education.

We are all so proud of this recognition and THANK YOU all for your continued support! To view the report card, see
