    "Both of my sons needed ESL services so we sent them to Poe,altough we live in Buffalo Grove,my older son until he was ready for the mainstream class was in ESL,happy,friendly boy,little shy sometimes,so when he finally joinef regular 3rd grade,things changed drastictly...he wasn't accepted by his classmates....he was an outsider.. Now he's in Cooper and happier,so when my younger son will be done with ESL i will NOT let him go to regular,maistream class at Poe....he might not be happy there and not recognized by his classmates when walking to school in the morning,because of "not belonging"."

    "We have had such great success at our school and have been very lucky to have such a great handful of awesome teachers! My kids have done so well here and have learned a great work ethic that I hope carries them into middle school and beyond. There are a couple programs that are not publicized or explained well - including the criteria for PSI (advanced learners) and how these work or how students can achieve at a higher level. I would love to see what the district can do to formally address higher level learning and enrichment."

    "The classes are small. The staff is nice. The school is nice and well maintained. The teachers are wonderful as is the curriculum . It is a nice diverse group of children. The PTO is very active, however there is not a huge participation across the entire school community. I think this is because 1/3 to 1/2 of the students at the school are in the Russian ESL program and there may be a language or cultural divide there. The boundaries set up for children that go to this school are very strange. So if you live in the neighborhood surrounding the school it may feel like a small tight knit community. If you don't, you could end up feeling completely isolated."

    "I completely disagree with the review regarding the school being awful. The teachers at this school are kind, care so much about the students and work hard in educating them. Small class sizes and a real community feel. The teachers know almost all the kids by name. Its a great school. Easy to get as involved in as you want with the school."

    "this school is awful. Awful, awful. Might be OK for slow or average kids. No challenge at all at the other end of the spectrum. Pretend gifted program. No sense of community among families here."
