    "Nice show on the outside - teachers are very competent - but they have no books for the children and the few books that they do have are now allowed to come home and the kids are walking around with 40 book bags on their backs all day. No lockers. This could be a really great school...if only they were teaching with books that are literary no longer in print. And therefore not allowed home for the children to study or for the partent to purchase - in addition it's been 10 weeks and I still have yet to see any corrected papers from either in class or homework that has been turned in. Someone needs to do something about this school other than give parents the run-around!!! At this point I am scared to death for any upcoming statewide testing and am currently looking for an alternate school."

    "kozminski community academy has excellent teachers who care about their students. my child has learned so much over the years attending kozminski. the discipline is a bit lacking and could be better enforced."

    "I'd like to start by saying that Kozminski Academy is a good school with hard-working 'highly qualified' teachers. While we try to keep enrollment up, we accept kids from around the city. Many of these children have come from diferent backgrounds and surroundings. Our school has improved 6 straight years in a row (with only a handfull of other CPS schools system-wide). What we need to make this a great school is great parents who will step up and help rather than sit back and complain. The problems here are not the kids, teachers, or administration - it's the parents who hang around, spread gossip, and feed their need for entertainment and drama. It only takes a few 'bad apples' as they say..."

    "The teaching staff overall is very professional and knowledgable. I have not witnessed the horrible things some of these reviews claim are going on. It almost sounds personal perhaps from a past employee??"

    "I am appalled by the lack of responsibility this school takes. Parents drop kids off at 7:30am--no teacher or administrator provide adult supervision or program to protect these at-risk children. After the end-of-day school bell, children who are not bused back to their homes are left to supervise each other. Fighting in the street, property vandalism, horrifying language and even gambling ensues. Hopefully the CPS CEO recognizes this school, not far away from his home, is an under-performer and needs new leadership and mission. If one takes a gander at the school's webpage...this school ensures that their student reach a level of acheivement commensurate with their abilities. I call on the leadership to provide the highly structured environment promised, and provide these at-risk children with guidance and supervision!"
