    "A very family oriented school. Their kindergarten teachers are some of the best I have come across in the Chicago district. The office staff is very friendly and always willing to help you out if needed. The older students seem to blend well with the younger children. An over all sturdy foundation for our children to grow."

    "Farnworth School is a fantastic neighborhood school! The staff is great! Well trained,caring, several teachers have National Board Certification. Principal has high standards and a vision for the school. CCSS practices were happening several years ago. The school offers art, health, has had music teacher for years and has a wonderful library. Parents have opportunities to become involved and participate in their child's education. If this school is your home school count yourself lucky! I have a sophomore who graduated from Farnsworth and a seventh grader attending now. Great things are happening at Farnsworth School!"

    "My daughter goes to Farnsworth school and its the best school. Very attentive and helpful staff. Teachers are amazing and class sizes aren't as big as other schools in the area. I will continue to send my child to Farnsworth school thru the eighth grade. Also very family oriented."

    "I LOVED going to this school! Before going here, I went to another Chicago school that treated me very poorly and was very judgmental. I didn't know that how they were treating me was wrong until I went to this school. I remember that all the teachers and staff here were very loving and caring. I had not experienced that AT ALL in the previous school, Prussing Elementary! They taught the students very well and were just GREAT! This school made me want to learn and do better in return for their kindness. I also loved that they held after school activities! I was devastated when I had to transfer out due to living conditions."

    "After going through the sadness of losing our long-time principal, Dr. Catherine Wells, the Farnsworth Family is continuing to work hard to keep our students rigorously engaged in all academics, proper social interactions, and personal physical improvements. Farnsworth provides as excellent environment for your children to succeed in all three areas of their lives. I am proud to be a long-term teacher at this school!!"
