    "My school is too noisy and too large. Not enough, none in fact, attention is given to processes involved in solving complicated math problems. Teachers have too much to do in a short amount of time. More teacher training is especially needed with language classes and math. Inexperienced instructors need more guidance. Parents are working overtime to make up for the deficiencies."

    "This school has gone down the tubes. We've been there for 5 years and it used to be excellent. It just isn't the same this year. No recess, silent lunches, no running allowed on playground. I'm just sick of it. We have to move, I think. It's such a shame."

    "At Walt Disney Magnet School, I have no problems with the teachers but lower grade administration is not helpful at all. Loved this school last year but extremely disappointed this year. It is very disheartening and I'm definitely going to try for different school for my kids next year."

    "WEI enrolled my daughter for Walt Disney I in 2008/2009 year.The classroom teacher was nice,unfortunately the specials teachers were not.I witnessed the art teacher, the tall, in her late 50s,who wears a lot of accessories and long red nails asking kindergarten children hold their hands up, my assumption was " she must be putting stamps or stickers of some kind.No, she slapped each 5 year olds hands with her gigantic accessorised hand.I held back my tears and upon pick up told a couple of parents of that pod. I tried to write this review, but the site hadn't let it post, was kept blocking.I pulled out my child the next year.I still regret having sent my child through the traumatizing long experience. Also saw sub.teacher yelling at kindergartners to walk down the stairs in soldier style, making corners. The pod layout as my friend said it " worse than a third world country""

    "Our daughter attended Walt Disney and was very happy with it. We care about her education and she transferred from a renowned private school. We were thrilled when she was chosen. She attended from third to sixth grade. She was 'placed' just below the gifted level. She was inspired by her teachers. She was on the Disney track team. In sixth grade, with the recommendations of her teachers, she was accepted into the gifted program for sixth grade and learned Chinese. She took the Academic Center tests, along with other Disney Students. As a result, she was accepted to Whitney Young's Academic Center. We regret that the current Mayor is diverting funding from good Chicago Public Schools. This may put more stress on educators and impact the quality. However, enough about my opinion on the poor oversight of Chicago Charter Schools. Each grade is broken down into home rooms, where the students are taught. Some home rooms focus on those to whom English is a second language, while another may work with more challenged students. We were very satisfied with Disney. Our daughter is now a Freshman in high school. No regrets. We'd do it again if we had the chance."
