    "This school can become a great school but with the children having no books the school is just like the other public schools. The children are failing and children can not learn without books!"

    "This is a great school. Teachers work overtime simply because they care. Mrs. April Knox was the best principal but now she has been moved to a higher position, I congratulate her but since she has left it just hasn't felt like home. Also Mrs.Laura Cummings was a great for planning nice programs for the children such as " Dancing with Class" this gave children the chance to express themselves in different dances such as Tango, Swing, Waltz, and Salsa. Ms. Andrews is an awesome math teacher teaching children fun ways to learn math no matter how old they are. She encourages students to try their best by being personal with them, she makes the students feel like they could be something one day. She makes each student feel special and cared for."

    "Bronzeville Lighthouse Charter School has the potential of becoming an excellent feeder for any our top ranked highschools if they strengthen their discipline policy, lessen the teacher turn around, taught more than test prep and did more teaching. We have an amazing school with significant challenges. As a parent who has been apart of the school since it's opening, I know we can do alot better. My scholar is doing exceptionally well for many reasons. Discipline issues cripple instruction time and need to be removed. Parents accuntabiltiy needs to be upheld! Home is where it starts!!!!!!"

    "Bronzeville is a good school when it comes to tests and helping children read, but socially connection is not presented there. When a child gets into trouble they label them and talk bad about them amongst the parents and teachers. The child who have troubles in the beginning, is the child that is blamed for everything. They continue to see to it that they remind the child about their past instead of helping the child see their potential and build self-confidence. This school is full of young teachers that work hard for the rise in test sores which I applaud them for, but when it comes down to motivation and encouragement they have no EXPERIENCE!!! I am a parent that is always attending meetings and stay in contact with my son's teacher and principal and refuse to act as though this type of social and cultural disconnection doesn't exist. They are unfair with the way they treat the students that trie hard to exceed and have behavior problems but at this day and age what child don't have them? Why would you want to pick on a kid? Parents continue to encourage your child."

    "Bronzeville has a longer day than regular public schools and the kids take art, music, and Spanish, so in that sense the school is much better than most public schools on the South side. The teachers aren't bad either, although a lot are new and they seem to have a high turnover. They'll also pull out struggling readers for oral reading of a text book (I think it's an SRA program) which is a little old fashioned and won't help kids with severe reading problems. The goal is to send every kid to college, so Bronzeville isn't for everyone."
