    "Volta is a gem of a neighborhood school. It has professional, dedicated teachers, high quality academic programs, and supportive parents that have led it to be recognized as a Level One school in the city. The children of Albany Park are lucky to have a school of this caliber available to them."

    "This school is a decent school. My son has only been in this school for a year but i've seen the progress he has made and it's very much thanks to Mrs. Warren, She's an awesome teacher and makes sure all her students are getting the education they need. My son is in the low spectrum and she made sure he was evaluated and now hes in tutoring and it is helping him tremendously!"

    "I am a former student who transferred to Edison and I think that Volta was terrible back when they had a gifted program. They fired my kindergarten teacher because they needed more Hispanic teachers. I think that Mr Johnson spends way too much effort on trying to make kids who aren't bilingual focus on non-main subjects. When I was in the gifted program, they let anyone in. In my class alone, which was split into two grades that were taught by the same teacher, at least four kids had to go to summer school and were not kicked out of the gifted program. And don't get me started on gym. They have had the same (ex-science and math) gym teacher for around 15+ years and on some days he would let us play anything as long as it involved a certain item, whether jump rope or basketball that would be basically it. And let me tell you, the school was built in the 50s and some classrooms haven't changed since. That is what I think about Volta (but not the teachers other than the gym teacher)."

    "As a community member, I have seen the consistent decline of this school since the current principal has taken over. Truly too bad!"
