    "My child went to Brooks for four years and did not like the school. My response was this is a top ranked school, and it will be good for you. Ever since the new principal was hired, the school seems to be going down except in sports. You have very good teachers in place if they are allowed to teach, and the rest need to come up to the task. I pulled my child out and transferred to another high school. At this time her grades have gotten better, and will graduate on schedule. My child has picked up on the subjects they fell behind in, and are on the right track. My heart fell Thanks go out to all that helped while my child was there."

    "I am a current freshman at Brooks and I absolutely love my school! The curriculum is very good but it's challenging!! You can not slack off because it will show in your grades immediately. Teachers provide both students and parents with phone numbers and e-mail addresses. Students here stay focused on their work and still like to have fun. Students have alot of school spirit and like to help each other. Brooks is THE school to go to!"

    "GBCP has a good college prep curriculum, but needs to add more AP classes,better prepare students for standardized testing,and track student 4 year progress with better college prep counseling services. Brooks, academically is a top school on the South Side of Chicago, but doesn't operate at the same level as the other top Selective Enrollment schools. Parental involvement is very low. The school website is not updated and there's no computer system for parents to track student progress. Most students are satisfied, but don't realize that they aren't receiving the same quality services that other top Selective Enrollment schools receive. Activities are sufficient, but sports programs are a work in progress,some good, some bad."

    "(GBCPA),Gwendolyn Brooks College Preratory Academy is an absolutly amazing highschool. The school is absolutly breathtaking, surrounded by beautiful wildlife attracted by the very immaculate pond taht does nothing but add to the beauty of the school. The students that attend GBCPA are some of the brightest students in Chicago. Although the classes are quite difficult GBCPA is a great Highschool to consider."
