    "Bullying is OUT OF CONTROL HERE!!! Teachers do nothing, year after year. This is an ongoing issue. My son has been hit, pinched, called names-the teacher tells him "not to tattle". Disgusting"

    "My name is Yasmin Jones and i go to Mark T Skinner West Elemetery School.I am in sixth grade .I just started school on August 26,2013 on Monday. I think others should know about this school is that it is a wonderful school.If your child doesn't understand something that the teacher is teaching your child's teacher will do something right away to get him to understand .I also like my principal Ms.Clark because every year we will watch a bullying video so we will learn to not start any bullying.And if we see bullying we are not suppose to get into the fight .We are suppose to tell a grownup or a teacher or whoever is in the hallway that is close by.What i like about this school is that if your child doesn't know something or isn't good in a subject you just have to let your child teacher know and she or he would do something to help your child inpprove."

    "Skinner is a school that brings out the potentials in a child. It pushes children to reach above their limits. The teachers are highly committed Miss woerzoreck in 1st grade is an outstanding teacher. Although the homework given to the children which is mostly research based and voluminous tends to keep them up past their bedtime. There's daily homework and weekly homework as well. This is sometimes overwhelming for both parents and child. However, there's no doubt that the Skinner West is thorough. There's no room for timidity, a child needs to prove himself and defend his thoughts and opinions with facts. The issue of bullying is recurrent, the school needs to improve its ways of handling this issue so as to be seen to be fair to all concerned."

    "Our daughter tested into Skinner and attended kindergarten and 1st grade there. If we were not moving to the suburbs, she'd still be there. While I was a bit put off by the amount of homework (even in kindergarten), our daughter has thrived at Skinner. A great learning community. My only hesitations are that with a lack of substitute teachers in Chicago, many of the ancillary courses were cancelled because they were pulled to substitute classes if a teacher was out. Ms. Growe (K) and Ms. Sittner (1st) were awesome teachers."

    "If your child is an ethnic minority or an English Language Learner, this may not be right place for you. Most of the teachers are young, white females who do not recognize discrimination. They assess and group through "observation." Thus, if you have a quiet child, they are likely to be placed in lower reading and math groups, even though they may be ready for more challenge. Bullying is abundant and rampant. Young children are told not to tattle, leaving them with no one to turn to when they are bullied. This school has great test scores, and is probably the best of the bunch that we have experience with, but it is probably more suited for White and African American students."
