    "I think it's sad to have taken the time to craft this rant when, clearly, you have personal issues best addressed in person and not on a community post. The only thing your poor children are suffering from is your inability to cope, move, communicate effectively to end the "nightmare" or find a solution that doesn't involve slander. The staff at Prussing is professional, helpful and doing the best they possibly can. Constructive criticism is one thing, rambling rants are really unproductive."

    "This school is a total nightmare!!!! My children have been in this dump unfortunately 4 years now due to being in area & not having much of a choice right now. My poor children have been suffering the consequences due this school's unprofessionalism and ignorance! For the record the principal of this school is rude & is totally unqualified for this job if you ask me because he can care less of the kids' education/well being or even the parents for that matter. As for his office staff they are all a total joke & should not be working with children either. Finally, as far as the teachers go I wouldn't say they are all bad, but yes, there is a BIG percentage that are absolutely awful. So please parents beware...if you are deciding to move into this area for this school I would definitely think twice about it for your children sake."

    "My son is at Prussing for PreK. I feel the education is wonderful because of the teacher. She is compassionate, caring, intelligent, considerate and has a genuine passion for developing our children into educated individuals. She is a gift to our community. That being said, the office staff and principal have much to be desired. They have a rudeness and level of arrogance I have not experinced in my lifetime. I also have seen a Chicago Model of "Pay to Play Politics" that I find extremely disturbing and of much concern to parents as weli as the boundry being clouded between professional and personal relationships with the principle, the priciple's family and some parents. This issue causes an uneasiness in LSC and PTO meetings for the parents in attendance. The behavior of administration makes it difficult for the teachers who are very supportive and hard working to shine."

    "The office staff at Prussing has been so helpful as far as my daughter and I are concerned. My daughter transferred in from out of state and had a very difficult time adjusting. The office staff went out of their way to make her feel welcome and comfortable. I have nothing to say but thank you."

    "My child called sick from the classroom and when I called back not knowing the kids can call from the classroom the office staff acted as though I was bothering them wondering why I saw Prussing School on my caller ID. My child sat in class for another 2 hours with a toothache & earache til she came home wondering why I did not come get her! Only then did I learn that she called from the classroom."
