    "I have had 3 children graduate from McPherson, and have one left. This school has been a wonderful learning experience for my children, who we transferred here from a private school. The administration and teachers have always been available to discuss and help to solve problems, and have encouraged my children, who have varying levels of ability, to succeed. After leaving McPherson, I have ahad 2 children go to selectric enrollment high schools, and one in a magnet program, and all have done well academically. The auditorium is certainly old and even somewhat decrepid, but it does not keep the school from putting on musicals, operas, and other performances. With the sever budget cuts from CPS, one often has to choose between education and facilities, and the administration at McPherson has chosen in favor of teachers and programs."

    "I have two children who attend McPherson who are having wonderful experiences. I had to make a last minute decision on enrollment and am just so happy that this occurred. This is not my area school and came across it accidently. My daughters LOVE going to school and don t want to miss even when they are sick. They have excelled in their classes. The only downfall has been my daughter s first progress report this year. They weren t her usual scores and after communicating with the teacher, it turned out that specific information that should have been taught last year had not been taught by her teacher (who is no longer at McPherson) then. This was a challenge which she has overcome. I feel that McPherson as a whole is awesome! There are wonderful teachers and wonderful volunteers along with other wonderful parents who are just as involved as I am. I would most DEFINITELY recommend this school for other parents."

    "My children attended this school since pre-school. The teachers are great, except a couple that doesn't teach Science well enough for 5th graders that caused many kids in class almost failed. The administration is lack of communication & customer service skills that hurts me many times. I did mention to the leaders and hope for the change. The Assistant Principal is the Best."

    "I have a daughter currently ready to start fourth grade who has attended since first. We were apprehensive at first since she had been in private for pre-school and kindergarten. She has continued to excel and has had great teachers here. We have never had any issues with any of the staff and have been impressed with how pleasant and helpful they are. We are also glad to see that students are encouraged to continue to performing and learning above their grade level. They receive the instruction that they need so as not to get bored or overlooked. They also have many events designed to bring the parents/teachers/community together. Very nice."

    "My son is has been at McPherson since Kindergarten and is now in 2nd grade, reading at a 5th grade reading level. His teachers have been consistently excellent, highly engaged, and focused on giving him opportunities to do extra and more creative work in subjects where he masters the basics quickly. The parents at the school are very friendly and involved and the before/aftercare program is a lifesaver. I am occasionally frustrated by the inconsistencies and poor communication of the administration at the school, but I try to put that aside an focus on the terrific education my son is getting at the neighborhood school two blocks from our home. Yes, you can indeed send your child to public school in Chicago and have a great experience!"
