    "This school likes to promote itself but what it should really be promoting is student growth. There are only a couple of teachers here who really seem to get that and the rest are woefully unprepared to handle typical classroom behavior. Bullying, suspensions, and letters to student files seem to happen an awful lot at this school. Are there really that many tough kids at such a small school? Maybe the problem is in the way the administration and inexperienced teachers are handling things? You would hope that with all these awards and "board certified" teachers they'd be better equipped to actually GUIDE and TEACH. After all, they are all just kids."

    "It was sad that while my girls went to school here (all straight-A students) they did not receive much in the way of positive feedback. My 6th grader received detention for failing to do one-half a page of a 40-page winter break homework packet (only one student in the class had completed this section) and she spent the rest of the year terrified that she wo ld forgot something. They transferred to another school last year and are much happier with the mutual respect of the teaching staff. They were all behind in math with their peers, but are getting up to speed. If you have another option, I would recommend you take it."

    "Prescott is a great school with great teachers. While we have since moved from the area, Prescott more than prepared our children for their present schools on the North Shore."

    "If this school put the effort into retaining students and families that they do into taking down any of the negative comments on this site, they may become a better school. There is seriously something "wrong" here!"

    "My son has been at Prescott since Prescott Tots, prek, kindergarten and now 1st grade. Each year the school exceeds our expectations. The teachers are outstanding. If you call CPS, they will tell you Prescott teachers are the best in the district-85% of faculty has one or more Masters degrees. Faculty graduated from Cornell, Stanford, Erikson Institute, U of I (Champaign), and Michigan State. Principal Roche was selected to participate in Vanderbilt University doctoral program in educational leadership. Prescott's curriculum is progressive. The school hosts family learning events quarterly, including Reading, Science and Math events. The art teacher is amazing. Many extra-curricular activities are offered, including chess, Emerald City Theater drama class, Language Stars mandarin and spanish classes, violin, yoga and more. The parents group is working hard to continue to make Prescott the best school on the northside. A tour will be held this Friday, March 28th at 9AM and April 8th at 9AM. The school is a must-see with its mosaic tiled walls, art-lined hallways, hall of university flags and stunning library. Also visit www.prescottparents.com."
