    "My children attend this school and have are in both tracks (fine arts and options) for several years now. They are both very happy with the school. Fine Arts opportunties are exceptional and available to ALL students, in all programs. Parent groups are open to ALL parents of all backgrounds and all parents are strongly encouraged to get involved with the school in any way they wish! No one is excluded. I The accusations of constant violence and bullying have not been our experience at Pritzker at all. Though of course statistics cannot speak to individual student's experience, those researching the school might want to check out the 5Essentials survey (completed by students and teachers, and developed by The University of Chicago Urban Education Institute. This survey has a lot of objective statistics and information on CPS schools. Pritzker's safety ratings (bullying, safe environment) were very strong, and well above CPS average. You can find out this and much more data about the school at the CPS survey link https://cps.5-essentials.org/2012/s/610229/measures/safe/"

    "Pritzker school has awesome primary staff ( I would give this program five stars) and ancillary teachers and is an incredibly diverse school racially, and economically. One of the reasons our family chose this school. It has an incredible fine art program, with art and music full time teachers with a middle school student ability to focus on one area of the arts (drama, art, dance, band or keyboard classes). That is most positive thing about the Fine Arts middle school. Academically speaking, if your child can gain acceptance into an Academic Center, run don't walk away from the middle school program. With the exception of only three or four of the middle school teachers, these teachers can be extremely unprofessional in the classroom; bully, bait, curse and shame students while the admin looks the other way. Events happen at this school due to parent volunteers who organize and have hands in or run activities. Some parents have too much control given by the admin and exclude those who do not belong in the same tax bracket or ethnicity. Office staff is often uninformed or rude, esp if English is not your native language. Our family is glad to have left this school this year."

    "All those glitters is not gold. Music, art, spanish, dance, and theatre for the children is a promise. Principal does not know how to run a school with foresight. There are severe problems that leak into the education. Ex: The school went 2 semesters without a Spanish teacher so the kids had Spanish scheduled and were not taught Spanish. After years of Spanish my child could not even say, "My name is __." in Spanish. Principal is very good at shifting blame. Spanish teachers fault. Teachers cannot teach because the school won't uphold a basic level of behavior standards. I have heard things like, "that is just a bad class" which, again, the blame is shifted. Since when does an administrator get to blame the kids for running things? Children's fault. Do not try to discuss anything with the principal, she is always "meeting a deadline" and expects your children to communicate school activities with you. She will criticize you when you go in to clarify the disturbing things that your child reports for taking the word of a child. This school is pushing hard to fill slots, so ask yourself, if it is such a great school, why do they have so many openings so often? I volunteered often Ed."

    "My child is in his 3rd year in the options program. Largely I have been impressed with the quality of the teachers, some are phenomenal. We had some issues with bullying, but I was vociferous about the issue and it is resolved. The school has an amazing fine arts program -- the music and dance programs are exceptional. The choice program is adequately challenging but yes, class sizes are large (32). There is a great group of dedicated parents who are making improvements and fundraising. The weak link is the administration, particularly the principal. Pritzker is poised for a renaissance, but it needs a visionary to build a strong coalition of parents and faculty, not just a "manager". My child is happy there and loves his teachers, but I do agree the administration tends to be "reactive", not "proactive. I believe this will change in the near term. In the meantime, other parents that I know whose children are there are very pleased with the school. Pritzker contains an "options" program, a magnet program and a neighborhood program. It is a very diverse community, which I find valuable."

    "I am very happy with the progress my kids ae making. I was a bit apprehensive when I had to split them in to both programs RGC/FineArts. The teachers have made all the difference and the administration worked hard after the strike to do more with less. Now that we have the recess aides things have gotten better. Lunchroom atmosphere could be better, but I can honestly say it was about the same 30 years ago when I was a kid. I highly recommend the school."
