    "If this school put the effort into retaining students and families that they do into taking down any of the negative comments on this site, they may become a better school. There is seriously something "wrong" here!"

    "My son has been at Prescott since Prescott Tots, prek, kindergarten and now 1st grade. Each year the school exceeds our expectations. The teachers are outstanding. If you call CPS, they will tell you Prescott teachers are the best in the district-85% of faculty has one or more Masters degrees. Faculty graduated from Cornell, Stanford, Erikson Institute, U of I (Champaign), and Michigan State. Principal Roche was selected to participate in Vanderbilt University doctoral program in educational leadership. Prescott's curriculum is progressive. The school hosts family learning events quarterly, including Reading, Science and Math events. The art teacher is amazing. Many extra-curricular activities are offered, including chess, Emerald City Theater drama class, Language Stars mandarin and spanish classes, violin, yoga and more. The parents group is working hard to continue to make Prescott the best school on the northside. A tour will be held this Friday, March 28th at 9AM and April 8th at 9AM. The school is a must-see with its mosaic tiled walls, art-lined hallways, hall of university flags and stunning library. Also visit www.prescottparents.com."

    "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."
