    "Vanderpoel has some of the most amazing teachers I have seen! Even though they are rigorous, most of the students I know still thrive, excel, and achieve. I am proud to send my two children to such a nurturing environment"

    "Hello, I am a parent of two Vanderpoel students. My child just graduated from Kindergarten. She is reading at a spring second grade level and math at a spring first grade level. I have one child entering into kindergarten. I had not had any issues with this school. They are focused on their students being great scholars. I want the same for my children and thats what I am recieving."

    "It is my opinion that Vanderpoel is currently lacking the standard of excellence and integrity to engage students in effective academic curriculum. Since the controversial appointment of the current Principal in 2012, the student scores and staff and student moral have declined. Once an environment that thrived on cooperative involvement and transparencies between Principal, parents, and teachers has now been replaced with ambiguous communication and disingenuous efforts towards resolutions. It is evident by the 2013 Parent Survey Report which rates the school as weak-very weak and the Chicago Tribune's 2013 IL School Report Card report exclaiming in bold - this school does not meet federal education standards. As parents we want our children to not only attend a school with evidence of high academic achievements but to be in an environment that will reflects positive values, accountability, and respect. Vanderpoel is in the mist of transition/internal disharmony - maybe in a few years the current principal will grasp what more experienced Principals already know. I would liken it to choosing between an experienced nanny or a certified babysitter. Ask about credentials."

    "Solid academics, small school sizes, good teachers. My child went here and graduated. He now attends Lindblom Math & Science Academy, so thanks Vanderpoel!"
