    "My school is actually a really good school.The teachers really care about us getting to go to college and high school.My math and science teacher talks to me everyday about getting good grades and I need to try harder.We are a diverse school also.I like how we have a new recess thing because when it is raining or when it is going to start snowing badly,we will go inside the auditorium or gym room a play games or even watch kid movies.I believe our school should get a better security guard because she is kind of old and she can also control the kids sometimes but she isn't that good.One time our school had this security guard who was very strict and was very good at his job but I don't know what happened to him.Sayre is a good school."

    "(PART 2) Yet these teachers are not being seen as so, in fact, many wonderful teachers have come to our school and have been relieved of their job for whatever reasoning. This school is no longer an environment that welcomes you. I am one of the many students who are lucky to get out now."

    "I would love to give this school a higher rating because the teachers that are still there are wonderful and love their job. Unfortunately the administration there is making it next to impossible to be successful. Teachers are leaving at an alarming rate, some in the middle of the year. There is little staff support. The principal is borderline verbally abusive and rules with fear instead of creating a positive working environment. You can feel the tension from the moment you step foot in the building and get a taste of it once you try to have a conversation with the principal. As you can see from significant decrease in test scores that "leadership" (and I use that turn loosely) from someone without any real classroom experience has a negative effect on the learning environment. She is unable to relate to her staff members and is disconnected from her community. Teachers have left the building in ambulances due to work related stresses. This school was once something great and there is still a staff and community there that can make it wonderful once again. The equation is all there, now if only the negative variable were to be removed, the school could become great once again."

    "I entered the building today and saw a group of office personnel working diligently. Although, I did not see the principal I did witness a whole collaboration of office personnel really working hard with a smile on their face as I left the office with a resume. The school environment is beautiful inside and outside. I believe students do enjoy going to Sayre School. Sometimes change is good and sometimes we have to give it time for change to be better! What is old is traditional. What is new is progressive. We need traditional & progressive educational needs for the students to succeed. We need a world of educational people including paretns to help guide the students to get there. Remember it takes a village to raise a child."

    "As a member of this school-and after having visited many CPS schools-I can sincerely state that this school is making it happen. From administration, to staff, parents, community and of course the students, everyone is on board with their learning targets. The magnet cluster focus World Language is embraced by all, diversity is celebrated and the focus is always on instruction. "If you focus on the strengths, the weaknesses will disappear.""
