    "That sounds wonderful that you have known this teacher for 14 years! You can be married to someone or work with a person every day and not know what will make a person do or say something to certain individuals. I am far from disgruntled I only told the truth. An as a matter of fact I did find a EXCELLENT school and a WONDERFUL new teacher! You see the behavior changed when my child was removed out of the school and area. My son is not special needs and far from it. He has excelled at a rapid rate beyond where he was academic or socially at Mcdowell. So I'm a firm believer in God and he removed my son from a environment where my son felt threaten and I was a threat because I'm a parent who spoke up!!!"

    "I have known this teacher for 14 years. She is an excellent teacher dedicated to her children. In the disgruntlement of your review, I hope you find a facility that can deal with the behavior of your child who needs special attention. McDowell has producuced great kids and they will continue to do so."

    "McDowell is a great school. All three of my daughters attend McDowell. The headstart teacher and the teacher assistant are excellent with the children. The teaching staff care about the students and work as a connect unit for the benefit of the children. Space is limited at McDowell but they do very creative things with what they have. They offer male and female mentoring programs, music lessons, access to technology, computer learning games, a gifted program and more. Dr. Hood is an excellent principal and I feel proud to be a McDowell parent."

    "I absolutely love this school, I attended in 99, and went there until 2001. When I first walked in as a kindergartener in the first 5 minutes I was welcomed by the entire school. Education is absolutely important to these teachers, they make it fun and they make it worth your time, and if you don't make it worth your time that is definitely a problem with them. They are an incredible staff and thinking about the school makes me want to be an elementary student all over again. I learned alot here and I am who I am today b/c of my education starting here. You are doing an incredible thing to enroll your child here, they will definitely have the best brought out of them."

    "I am a .5 art teacher teaching at McDowell School of International Studies and think it is an abolutely wonderful school. The children are encouraged to be excellent and do their best -- and if they fall short, there are teachers, mentors and aids there to help them achieve their full potential. This is a school that has the flavor of a private school-- great teachers, great leadership and an atmosphere of nurturing, scholarship, respect for the arts and creativity. I am thrilled to be at this school, and feel my heart leap every time I pull up in my car to begin a school day. Bravo to Dr. Hood and everyone else who works so hard to make it a little jewel in the crown of Chicago Public Schools. Bravo!"
