    "My son is in fifth grade at Harte. Prior to Harte, he was enrolled at St Thomas in Hyde Park for Kindergarten through second grade. The curriculum is more rigorous at Harte and the expectations for the students are higher at Harte than at St. Thomas. Like most schools, Harte has room for improvement. However, the principal and the administration are very capable, and they have the students' best interests at heart. Harte is definitely better than the typical Chicago neighborhood school."

    "It a phenomenal learning environment that empowers children from multiple backgrounds and levels to achieve excellence in education. The teachers are fully vested and committed to the children's learning and go above and beyond to help all the children. In addition to providing an excellent curriculum, the environment encourages excellent moral compass; powerful citizenship; inclusion, compassion and other attributes that enables the children to know the difference they can make for themselves and their community. In spite of challenging economic times and severe funding cuts, the school administration continues to seek and gain options to provide a different caliper of learning enhancement thru rich afterschool programs. Although I am blessed with a excellent income, I choose to have my child attend this school for the richness that even private schools cannot match."

    "I love this school. Both of my kids go here and are very happy at the school. Sometimes they have to much homework but they have learned everything that has been taught to them. Bret Harte teaches the students spanish starting in preschool. Once they are in the higher grades they can speck spanish very well. They offer after school programs that go beyond the average. The school is right across the street from the Museum of Science and Industry that the go very often. The school students have been on the news many times thourgh the many programs at the museum. My kids and I love this school I only wish it last grade wasnt 6 grade."
