    "If I could put zero stars, I would. Could not get my children out of this school fast enough. If your child is in the 80%--meaning, does not have issues or is academically excellent , this place will be fine. Dealing with the administration is mind-numbing. Principal is average at best. More interested in politics and policies than children and their needs to be successful. The teachers take direction from her and don't like to think outside the box. The good teachers don't last long--they either leave or succumb to her management. It is her very narrow way, or the highway!"

    "Very good partnership between teacher & parents. Technology resources for chidlren are good, too.CAP program partnership (after school care) is among best in the district although run by the park district. They all dove tail to guide the children / parents well. Top art & music teachers."

    "Award-winning art teacher, gregarious and talented music teacher, nurturing teachers. The vice-principal stands out on the corner every day rain or shine (or snow) to high-five the students and wave at the parents and students arriving in cars. Every teacher has gone above and beyond to both welcome and educate my child. Words cannot express how thrilled I am with this school!"

    "I had my kids at this school for 5 years.Would not recommend sending your child to this school.The teachers care more about finding out what is going on in your home than teaching the children.They have my email and send me email's 5 times a day about things that are not important it drives me crazy.Can't wait to get out of this school and be done with them."

    "My children love their school. You will not be able to find a better art teacher anywhere! The regular classroom teachers are wonderful too. When my children showed they needed more challenging work, their teachers were ready to provide it. The communication between parent and teacher is easy. Parent involvement at the school is welcomed and encouraged."
