    "I am a graduate of Ward Elementary School, and I can honestly say that the staff is exceptional. There is no bias here when I say that the teachers and administration are friendly, caring, professional, and even quite humorous. The teachers care about their students, and will go great lengths to help kids in need. However, the major problem I had at this school was that I felt like the curriculum was extremely watered down for the "slower" children. I yearned for knowledge, but there were not enough advanced courses to take at JWS. All in all, It's a great school and even though I felt restricted at times, I spent some great years here at Ward. I now attend one of Chicago's most prestigious high schools so I guess this elementary school is doing something right. 3/5 stars. (3 and 1/2 if i could)"
