    "Let's also not forget that just because a teacher leaves the school doesn't mean they were forced out. Teachers have lives too and I can say for certain that the 4/5 grade teacher left last year because her husband was transferred. The other two were not renewed because they were not meeting the needs of the kids. As a parent, I am thrilled that the principal takes the necessary steps to "right a wrong"."

    "We love Prescott. We have a child in 2nd Grade and will be sending another next year to Kindergarten. Prescott students received the highest improvement in the city on the ISAT last year. The principal continues to hire outstanding teachers. Over half of the teachers are National Board Certified when many other schools only have one or two. The art teacher is absolutely amazing. I can't believe the art they are producing. Even the gym teacher is incredible! He works tirelessly to get the kids active and healthy and to expose them to a variety of sports. Regarding the negative comments, it seems like someone just wants to bash the school even though their children do not attend the school. Come take a tour, meet the parents who are involved with the school and see for yourself. Tours are on the 2nd Tuesday of most months."

    "This will be our second year at Prescott at my child could not be happier. She came home everyday with something to share with me that she had learned from her teacher. The art teacher ... I can not say enough about her. She has taught my child not only the love of art, but also the history! Wow! With all of that being said, I am a little concerned with the teacher "turnover". It was always my understanding that to build a community of learners, you need consistency from the teachers, curriculum, and the mastery of that grade level, not to mention the routines and rituals that you would like from the staff and students. How does this happen when you have three teachers leaving in one year? Were they not a good choice in the first place? Did they not fit the criteria that the parents were looking for? Did those teachers want to leave? Above all, I think expectations and consistency is what makes a school thrive."

    "Another year has gone by and another 3 teachers will no longer be with us...1st grade, 2nd grade, and 4/5th grade......something is definitely wrong."

    "We just completed our first year at Prescott (K) and could not be happier. There will always be parents who are never satisfied with the amount of attention or focus that they feel their child (or they themselves!!) should be getting, but this is a public school and I can say that in comparison to my child's peers attending other reputable CPS schools, Prescott is right on par or above average in terms of academic curriculum. I think the principal and teachers are dedicated to making Prescott an amazing school and not just another cog in the CPS machine. My child cannot wait until next year, and neither can I!"
