    "This is my child's second year at Prescott. So far, we have been very pleased with his experience. The staff is very highly qualified and teachers do an excellent job of collaborating. They use a social-emotional curriculum that has helped develop a strong sense of community in the classroom. Though the class sizes are rather large (as they are in most CPS schools) there are additional teachers who push in to the classroom during instructional time to reduce the student-teacher ratio. Most important, I feel that the teachers really know and care about my child. Even the support staff (security guard and lunchroom/playground monitors) know my child, greet him by name, and seem genuinely interested in his well-being. I get the impression that teachers feel supported by the administration and it shows in their can-do attitudes!"

    "This is our 5th year at Prescott, and I can't tell you how much growth and caring this school has. The teachers are amazing hands down. They work really hard with the students and care about each child. The parent involvement has grown so much. The PTA staff is great and they work really hard to make the fundraiser, walk a thon, and school picnic happen every year for the past 4years. If you have not toured and live in the neighborhood, come and take the tour and see for yourself the exciting academic things the have at Prescott. You will be happy your child attends Prescott. And always helping make new parents feel welcomed too. Much success to a great school in the making."

    "I think this school is underrate by Great Schools. The overview diversity stats are completely wrong or perhaps need to update it! Looks like there are more neighborhood admissions then out of district admissions. My child attends her first year here at this school. The K teacher is so patient and caring. Parents are so involved with the school."

    "My daughter has completed her Kindergarten year at Prescott. Like many of you reading this, I am a neighborhood parent that was confused by the mixed reviews on this site. I also had hesitations sending my child to a CPS school that isn't regarded as "top tier". A visit to the school hosted by one of the parent groups and subsequent meetings with the teachers and staff convinced us to give the school a chance. As my daughter's first year winds down, we are thrilled with her progress, especially her newly found enthusiasm for reading. The teachers are great, the staff is engaged, parents are active and everyone seems to love the school. I can honestly say that I have not heard any complaints from any fellow parents regarding the teachers or administration. If there are issues, they don't show where it counts - with the teachers and the students. I would encourage any parent considering Prescott to visit the school and meet with the staff. I believe you'll find a great school that's on the verge of becoming "top tier"."

    "My child has attended this school for 3years and states that the teacher yells at the students! I also don't believe that they enforce the "No Bully" policy as well as I have seen other schools enforce it. Instead of coming up with a positive plan that includes positive reinforced they choose to punish. We will be transferred out this year to a new school. #PositiveHopes#"
