    "As one of the first Tuition-based PreK parents I approached Ravenswood with some hesitation. After all I'd been told only magnets were good enough. But I knew two parents who had sent their children there so I took the leap. We've been so pleased. She has the attention she needs with smaller classes. She loves art & needs to move so a school with art & music AND now drama as well as 2 days of PE, wow! I'm sad the library had to die but unfortunately non-magnet schools don't get enough funds for everything. My child's scores have not been part of the stellar, but we also don't hear much sniping about "those sped kids bringing down our scores." She is accepted and incorporated by other kids. When we thought of moving I decided against it because I didn't think starting over would be good for her, nor did I think, where we were looking to live, that we would find another school like this. When we moved here very few people who lived in the area sent their kids here, now most kids on our block go to Ravenswood."

    "Four things I love about Ravenswoood: 1. Art Integration through out the curriculum. Students are learning to think about their process of creating, and asking others about theirs. 2.Project based inquiry-students are learning critical thinking skills,where to look to find answers and how to work together. 3. Commitment to small class size. 4. Strong sense of community.Teachers and administration all working with the same educational philosophy. Strong parent involvement. Even within the individual classrooms, a strong community is created among the students. It is warm, welcoming school community. Such a great, great school!"

    "I am so happy with Ravenswood. My son has been here since PreK and is now in 3rd grade. They use great curriculums (balanced literacy and Everyday Math) to teach reading and math, but my son more often comes home talking about science and how much he has learned about life cycles (3rd grade curriculum). I love that the teachers find time to give science and social studies their due, along with lit and math. Ravenswood is so committed to lower class sizes (the most he's had is 25), which is a bonus for my son, who might not get his due in a large class because he's a quiet kid. Last but definitely not least, Ravenswood provides quality Arts education--art, music and drama every week! I have been impressed with all of the teachers--they go above and beyond to make Ravenswood a true community!"

    "Our son has been at Ravenswood since Pre-K and is now going into second grade. He has continued to thrive is this school. The sense of community and parent involvement is fantastic. The Friends of Ravenswood is a welcoming parent group that has really helped with communication in the population. We are thrilled to have our son in this program."

    "My 2 kids have been at Ravenswood for 4 years and I couldn't be happier. I am also a teacher and I absolutely CHOSE this school because of the fantastic instruction and philosophy that the school values. The students are challenged and engaged in authentic learning that is completely differentiated. The staff is extremely talented and the administration is top notch. Our school community is really strong and the amount of events that bring us together is unbelievable. I think the best part of this school that sets it apart from the rest is the unbelievable arts integration program that the kids are involved with. The knowledge my kids have around the process of art, drama and music is more than I could have hoped for as a parent. I would highly encourage anyone who values instruction to look at this school beyond test scores. What a wonderful experience Ravenswood has been for my kids."
