    "As we approach the last few weeks of our first year at Prescott, it seems a perfect time to reflect and notice the amazing achievements that our children have made under the guidance and instruction of their outstanding teachers. Our children have excelled academically, made nice friends and always say that they feel safe, inspired and excited to learn. The fact that our children enjoy each day at Prescott speaks volumes in of itself. This a dynamic school with visionary leadership and highly dedicated staff and faculty. We are grateful for our children to have the wonderful opportunities at Prescott which is clearly a school on the "up and up"!"

    "This is an honest review for other parents doing the same as me (research on other schools). I have 2 children at Prescott for the last 3 years (both all A's). Strong points Art teacher is AMAZING! Small, close knit. This year has been difficult; one child in a classroom where there was intermittent heat for the majority of the winter. Also has a teacher that as my child says gets frustrated and screams at the class. In 2nd grade she asked the teacher to go to the bathroom 3 different times over the course of an hour - and was told "NO" - then had an accident in the classroom. In our other classroom - we personally know 4 children that have left the school because of the Administration (specifically Mr. Roche) and 2 more that are looking to leave. Support for diversity and acceptance is a low score for Prescott. Huge issues with unqualified support staff hired to fill multiple positions (none very well) and the safety of children being put knowingly at risk. Also, if a child has an IEP (at ANY level) they are not allowed to participate in the aftercare program. Every child has the right to learn, participate AND be safe at school it just doesn t happen at Prescott."

    "THIS SCHOOL IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Moved here from Florida and choose the area because we have to be sure our big daughter be in the Lincoln Park High School attendance area. This school is our neighborhood school. Since day one this school exceed our expectations. Is a big family . The principal and the staff are so professional and competitive but so nice. All the parents are amazing. We know everyone by names and they know each kids. The school offer everything you kid may need but the give the extra mile to help kids in their self confidence. Great schools need to give this school a 10 score BY FAR. Im so happy that my daughter been in this school for the second grade. Im so happy as a mom and she is so happy. The after school program is amazing. Everything is super organized."

    "This is my child's second year at Prescott. So far, we have been very pleased with his experience. The staff is very highly qualified and teachers do an excellent job of collaborating. They use a social-emotional curriculum that has helped develop a strong sense of community in the classroom. Though the class sizes are rather large (as they are in most CPS schools) there are additional teachers who push in to the classroom during instructional time to reduce the student-teacher ratio. Most important, I feel that the teachers really know and care about my child. Even the support staff (security guard and lunchroom/playground monitors) know my child, greet him by name, and seem genuinely interested in his well-being. I get the impression that teachers feel supported by the administration and it shows in their can-do attitudes!"

    "This is our 5th year at Prescott, and I can't tell you how much growth and caring this school has. The teachers are amazing hands down. They work really hard with the students and care about each child. The parent involvement has grown so much. The PTA staff is great and they work really hard to make the fundraiser, walk a thon, and school picnic happen every year for the past 4years. If you have not toured and live in the neighborhood, come and take the tour and see for yourself the exciting academic things the have at Prescott. You will be happy your child attends Prescott. And always helping make new parents feel welcomed too. Much success to a great school in the making."
