    "This morning, another mom forwarded the link to this site. I am beyond words that any parent would post negative comments about any teacher WITHOUT first sharing her concerns with that teacher. We have many teachers in our family who work so hard every day. Concerning this teacher at Ogden, we know Ms. L. Our son with special needs had her a few years ago for math, she took it upon herself to teach him to add using tally marks. She did more for our son than the special ed teacher assigned to modify the lessons. Tenured? How about experienced and kind? Is she right out of college and 22 years old, no. Does she know how to work with EVERY student? Yes!! And we have been involved with the school's events but have never made a big donation. How crass? Stick to your concerns, talk to the teacher first and stop the name calling. I hope Ms. L does not see your post. She deserves better. Thank you!"

    "For two years, I had an impression that the school doesn't really care what their students experience and learn, but is fully and solely focused on fund raising. My daughter was lucky enough to get accepted by another school, but honestly I would have been so worried if my daughter had to continue at this school. Don't get me wrong. My daughter had so much good time at Ogden, we will miss it. It is just that it is not very promising when you think of sending your kid here for 6~8 years. It is a good looking school, but it might be just that. In my opinion, the school is not the right one if you want your kid to advance and achieve as much as she/he can in her elementary school years."

    "Great school! I wish I had known about Ogden before spending a fortune paying for private schools for my older kids. My youngest son received a great education at Ogden. Ogden is sort of an unsung gem in the CPS system -- offering a great academic program, a diverse and talented student population, engaged and talented teachers and a strong group of supportive parents. The grade school campus (brand new facility this year) is located in the heart of Chicago's most expensive area and competes with several elite private schools in the area, each with tuition ranging from $25,000 to $30,000 for 2012. Ogden offers an International baccalaureate program for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. The program offers an intensive study of english, social studies, laboratory science, mathematics, world language (French, Chinese or Spanish), technology, arts, physical education, library science, and advanced research. Odgen's high school is fairly new, so the class size is much smaller than most of Chicago's public high schools. The curriculum is a solid college preparatory program."

    "The quality of teachers is above average. They are demanding and they work hard to push your kids. However, some teachers also play blatant favoritism that appears to benefit "neighborhood" kids vs. kids admitted via the IB/IG program. I notice that although kids admitted through testing have higher ISAT scores, they have lower grades than neighborhood kids. The could be a real problem for 7th grade students whose grades are important for applying for selective enrollment high schools. The principal and some administrative staff are great at raising publicity or funds, moderately successful at managing the staff and faculty but are quite indifferent to the well-being of kids. I had a few very unpleasant dealings with the principal or VP. It took them a long time to respond to my formal (in writing) complaints. They never implemented the resolutions we all agreed upon during the meeting. I have no doubt that they are extremely capably professionals. I do question where their hearts are and whether their successes, i.e. expanding the school, constructing a new building, and constantly traveling abroad, have distracted them from the real goals of education."

    "I attend this school as a Sophomore, in the Ogden International Highschool. I LOVE Ogden. It's one of the best schools that you can possibly go too. Besides, the sometimes anger led by another student, we actually all get along with each other at the end of the day. It's a great school if you want your child to go to a small highschool. It's also a really good learning environment, I now have a Gpa of 3.0."
