    "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."

    "This isn't a website for rating parents. This is about the schools. Just because you haven't had a negative experience doesn't mean the experiences of others didn't happen or was a result of bad parenting. It's sad but true but judgemental thinking empowers the negative and the teachers who are at fault love parents with this type of thinking. It deflects the attention away from them. It's wonderful when our children come home excited about school. What helps our family succeed is GOD, my Husband and myself. We put hard work into our family. Music & Art is all around us and our children knew other languages becuase we expose them to diversity. Our oldest is a Forensic Scientist, our twin daughter have full rides to two of the best colleges in the country and our 17 year old already has recieved a full scholarship and our 6 year old is now attending a school that has removed all he negative things done to her at bronzeville. My earlier opinion stands this school stands for the numbers and not for the children. Do your research. I share this info regarding this school in all community meetings. Parents be informed and alert!!"

    "As a parent of a child at Bronzeville I have full confidence in the staff and administration at the school. My child's teacher is in constant communication with me through email, phonecalls, and face to face. The school does arts infusion so my daughter gets very excited about the lessons that include art. One day she came home with a project that required her to bring to life the words of a story with paints. It is unbelievable how much she has grown since transferring here. I think it's sad that some parents put all the blame on the teachers, especially when their kids don't act right. I see this sometimes...parent yelling at teachers, talking trash, and transferring their kids because they think it's okay for them to act a fool and waste their classmates' time. It really is a shame. I also have to give a shout out to the special teachers. My daughter enjoys this part of the day most. Her old school didn't have art or music and she didn't know what Spanish was until going to BZ. Thank you, thank you, thank you for caring and helping my family succeed."

    "Bronzeville is a great place for every child to attend , I can say that with full confidence. Bronzeville has a great administration who care about the students education and quality of life, and the academic programs are above average. The first year my children were there, my son and I was asked to attend a breakfast with the principle, mayor daley, and other administrators from other charter schools, it was great.Not only is it a learning facility its family"
