    "My daughter is in kindergarten at Hawthorne and we have been so pleased thus far. Her teacher is dedicated, responsive, and clearly up to date on best practices in education. The administration is very accessible (they chose to convert their offices into a conference room since they're not in the office ever) and really care about the success of each child. My daughter is an advanced learner and they have worked to challenge and meet her individual needs. We grappled with sending her to Hawthorne or a gifted program and are so happy that we chose the more well-rounded setting that will allow for both of our children to be at one school as well. The community of families is also very kind, welcoming, and accepting of the very diverse backgrounds of those that attend the school. As with any CPS school there is a focus on test scores, but that is to be expected - and I find it a testament to the education that Hawthorne does so well on the test with kids from all socioeconomic tiers and backgrounds. It's really a special place and we feel lucky to have gotten in."

    "Hawthorne is in great shape in a difficult environment for public schools and I credit the combined efforts of the current principal, staff, faculty, and families at the school. I see kids collaborate in small groups and approach problems from different perspectives. I see good relationships and talented people forming a powerful community with high standards and active fund raising. I saw an awesome dads [and a mom] band last night at Schubas. And every year I see well-prepared children graduate and move on to top high schools. We are very fortunate to be at this outstanding school. Keep it up Pietrini."

    "Hawthorne was a very unique and special school before we hired our current principal 2+ years ago...Mr. Pietrini. Sadly, as new families enroll each new school year they will never experience how amazing this school was before Pietrini. They will never understand how amazing it should & could be with the right person leading. Before Pietrini, we had a school environment that welcomed parents always and encouraged them to volunteer in whatever capacity they wished. We had an amazing Principal, Anna Alvarado and Vice Principle. They led with kindness, intelligence and respect. Always displaying trust & pride in their students and in return they received the same. Mrs. Alvarado knew each student by name and she made them her priority. Mr Pietrini is all about control, dictatorship, making unnecessary rules, locking the doors, withholding information, keeping parents away, patting himself on the back...and TEST SCORES. The past two years more than half of our teaching staff have left and many, many families have pulled their kids out as well. It's hard to watch what is happening to our school. I wish CPS would get involved because the parents are too scared to speak up."

    "I am currently a student at Hawthorne and I can certainly admit that this school has been outstanding in academics and the student's here work as hard as they can to be they're best. --Although, as a student I believe that everything has changed and I don't agree with the choices made to the school. The principal is suddenly taking away traditional events and changing everything Hawthorne once was without letting the students get a chance to decide whether if they were okay with that choice or not. To me, I'm afraid in the next two years, future students won't be able to experience what they're older brother/sister/etc did. I realize that Principal's can make however many changes to "their" school, but changing-- or taking traditional things away and not considering the students' opinions is quite unfair."
