    "With every life experience nothing is perfect. With that said, you can add parental involvement plus school involvement to equals a successful growing being. Without both, failure is inevitable."

    "Morgan Park Academy has been wonderful for my three children, who started in the lower school this past year. Compared to the public schools we were at previously, I feel like they have finally found their true selves, are supported 100% by very loving and dedicated teachers and have made a terrific set of peer friends. The older kids are supportive of the younger kids - it feels like a great big family! We couldn't be happier."

    "Big things are happening for the better at MPA. I think the administrative changes are long overdue but will address these concerns. I just hope the Board will get the teachers back! We had the greatest, most committed, creative educators, and although I have not had enough time to get to know the newly-hired educators, who may be wonderful . . . I really must the old teachers! I hope the Board is listening. I would also love to know when the Board meets, so parents can communicate. The principals are great, but the leadership failed."

    "The school is no longer as it use to be and anyone that says that its a solid school must live in the neighborhood and are VERY limited with the choices of schools. Why have so many teachers left? Why is upper school full of exchange students? The only reason that someone would rate the school so high is because they have no other choice of schools. If you have other choices please do so. It's not worth the money at all. Since the new head of school has been there around 35 staff members have left."

    "MPA has been so wonderful for my eighth-grade son, and the staff have been so kind to him. He feels so far away from the difficulties at his previous school because of the healing that has taken place at MPA. Someone he knew slightly at his old school has started at MPA this year. The boys got together this summer to talk about MPA and how it is a different place. I overheard part of the conversation, and more the tone of enthusiasm my son had, in talking about his teachers and the students, and the cool and quirky things they do. I saw in this other boy the same look my son had 2 years ago, and I know he'll feel differently after a little time at MPA. We are so grateful for the generosity of the school and its board that makes it possible for him to be there."
