    "Every week my child comes home with flyers asking for money. These CPS budget cuts are ridiculous. I don't even know why Rahm Emanuel added an extra school hour to CPS, when that hour is being spent as "recess" time in Portage Park. Nothing is being learned during that added hour. If you can, run from the public system, Specially from this school. I don't agree with children being sent out in the cold during winter days for recess. Days as cold as 25 degrees. Over crowded recess area, it looks like a circus. Children are constantly getting hurt by their peers during this time, too many of them out there at once. On rainy days, students are sent to a crowded auditorium to watch movies. How is this helping my child's education? The new principal is ridiculous, even the faculty and teachers don't like her and disagree with her new policies. Don't get me wrong, not all is bad here. A few great teachers and friendly faculty staff, but it is hard to deal with a principal this arrogant."

    "I wanted to like this school, as it is only a block from our house... But after attending the kindergarten orientation we were very disappointed. The orientation was unorganized and gave no information about the program or school. We didn't get to see the classrooms, or hear about what the daily schedule would be like. The principle was militant and lectured the parents about the importance of attendance, and stated," This is kindergarten, NOT preschool, bring your child even if they are sick! We have a school nurse, we will see if they are really sick or not. " How irresponsible is it to tell people to bring in sick children? And to talk to the parents as if we have no clue if our children are really ill?! Needless to say, we will not be attending this school."

    "New principal is really turning things around. Just in the past year they have clubs for the kids after school, a new parent "club," and a new curriculum that has 6,7,8th grades in a "middle school" setting. Very encouraging with a 6th grader going here."
