    "I started off at this school back in 4th grade. As of right now, I am a freshman in high school. This school has taught, educated, and trained me to prepare me for the world of high school. The teachers and students have respect for one another. The most favorite thing I remember about the school is being the best of the best. I transferred when I was about to go to eighth grade, and I truly regret the decision. The school has bed faculty, and I hope they adapt to the new environment, teach the kids, and care for them. Owen Scholastic Academy's students, staff, faculty, and administration are BETTER THAN THE BEST OF THE BEST!"

    "The BEST of The BEST..is truly an accurate statement about this school! My child started here im second grade and have done well ever since. He is now a freshman at UIC College Prep and doing well. My eldest graduated from here also and is now a senior at Lindblom Math & Science Academy. I know I owe their success to Owen Academy. My children learned to take their academics seriously while at Owen and that stayed with them ever since. Thank you staff of Owen for making this such a great public school. This is truly an awesome learning environment."

    "This is an awesome school that focuses on academics and improvements. I love the sense of community at Owen. This school has awesome parent participation and volunteers. The Principal and Assistant principal work well together. The students confess everyday, "We are the BEST of the BEST". You can tell this in the way that they dress. They are held at a higher standard of dress code. There are no sagging pants. The children are taught to carry themselves with pride. The students strive hard and are held at a greater level of expectation. You always feel like family. The male mentorship program here is very strong. I love this school!"

    "This is one great school. My son who has Autism use to attend John C. Dore and they said that he would never learn math, well I am here to tell you that at Owens he has. It only took a few months and he has really started to shine. Also I can now be a parent and not have to go yelling and screaming everyday like at Dore. I don't know how they do it, but keep it up staff, me and my wife love you all!!!!"

    "I am so grateful that my two children attend this schools. I am happy that I found the school for my two kids because it is a great school! Excellent test scores, small class sizes, challenging curriculum,only 240 students in the entire school. The principal and assistant principal work hard to make this school a great school. Also, the teachers are all excellent and keep parents informed about their child progress. Parent participation is out of this world! The parents are always involved in school activities and their children's education. That is so important. The majority of the graduates go on to attend magnet and selective enrollement high schools, such as; Whitney Young, Jones, Lindblom, Payton, Morgan Park IB, CHSAS, Muchin, UIC College Prep, Catholic H.S, ect. I am impressed with this school. The after school program (til' 6pm) is good for working parents. Besides the core subjects;Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science (lab)and History, the students also have weekly, Computer lab, Fine Arts (Music&Art), Library and P.E. Overall, I love this school!"
