    "The exterior of the school looks promising. The grounds are clean and secure. Much to my surprise, it was the blatant ignorance of Principal Webb that left me speechless. He referred to the students, even as young as kindergarten, as thugs and gangbangers! His granmar and speech was nothing short of unprofessional. I was truly surprised and disheartened with his demeanor as the building leader. If the image this principal had of his students is so low, there is no question why Foster Park has been rated a Level 3 school. Perhaps CPS should reevaluate the so-called leaders they assign to building who pretend to care about children, but clearly come to collect their six-figure checks."

    "Foster Park Elementary School provides a phenomenal education environment for students who are in preschool to 8th grade. It ensures that all classes support student achievement by focusing teaching and learning on the Common Core State Standards. Teachers use best practices by implementing guided reading, volume reading, the gradual release model, differentiated instruction, content reading and building vocabulary. In addition, students are provided the opportunities to learn via hand-on instructional activities, such as, Butterfly Extravaganza, Measurement Week, College/Career Week, Math and Science Night, Saturday Academic Enrichment Program, Afterschool Supplemental Education Services, Math Enrichments Periods, Morning Tutoring, Multi-Tier Systems of Intervention Service and Technological Programs. Foster Park Elementary School monitors students' progress through weekly classroom assessments, NWEA MAP District Benchmark Assessments, ISAT, Performance Task Analysis and Illinois Alternate Assessment. Data is utilized to focus teaching and learning. The Foster Park Elementary School's Parent Advisory Council, Local School Council and Staff are vested in student learning."
