    "I was very pleased with this school until today. Yes they have high expectations for the children and the principle and teachers are wonderful. But today i went to give my child and her peers in her class some cupcakes for my childs birthday, and guess what they are no longer allowed in school because they are now promoting "healthy eating"... now you want to promote healthy eating!!! Point blank a child wants to be celebrated on their special day and its not a birthday with out a cake or cupcake to them. Who are they to tell me what i can and can not feed my child! This new rule is by far thee most ridiculous rule CPS has come up with by far! So what now they would like us to bring healthy snacks like prune juice and fiber one bars instead..... ha i bet the children would just love that! I just wrote to the Board of Education in regards to this new rule. I think this new rule is a complete joke and needs to be thrown out immediatley."

    "Im very happy with the overall performance of the school and staff! The principal Mrs. James is a kind and caring person who is a great asset to the school. The teachers are very helpful and push hard to help the children develop and succed. The school is always clean and maintained nicely. Staff is always friendly and very helpful in all situations. Both of my kids r doing great and at the top of the class. I as amazed when my first son was entering 1st gr. already reading, spelling, adding, and subtracting!! I love this school and recommend it highly!"
