    "Prescott is a small school with a big heart. Thanks to a strong and involved parent group, the school is thriving and gets better and better each year. My 8-year-old son has been at Prescott since Pre-k and loves it. I ve seen him grow so much academically and emotionally thanks to the teachers and administration who are responsive and caring. The art teacher/program is amazing. My son creates and studies art by Van Gosh, Matisse, Rousseau, Monet and Klimt. The school offers many extracurricular before-and-after school programs from yoga, music and chess there is something for everyone. I feel lucky we have such great school in walking distance to our home."

    "Once again Prescott continues to impress us. This is our 4th year and the school and we have a child in 3rd and a child in Kindergarten. They are both having excellent experiences with their outstanding teachers. The parent involvement has exploded in the 4 years that our oldest has attended. The number of enrichment programs (before and after school) has also expanded vastly in the last 4 years. The school is always bustling with activity. Principal Roche and Assistant Principal Malsch deal well with the fiscal obstacles CPS throws at us. They do it by collaborating with teachers and parent groups and the LSC. This is not our neighborhood school but instead we choose to send our children here. Highly recommended!"

    "As we approach the last few weeks of our first year at Prescott, it seems a perfect time to reflect and notice the amazing achievements that our children have made under the guidance and instruction of their outstanding teachers. Our children have excelled academically, made nice friends and always say that they feel safe, inspired and excited to learn. The fact that our children enjoy each day at Prescott speaks volumes in of itself. This a dynamic school with visionary leadership and highly dedicated staff and faculty. We are grateful for our children to have the wonderful opportunities at Prescott which is clearly a school on the "up and up"!"

    "This is an honest review for other parents doing the same as me (research on other schools). I have 2 children at Prescott for the last 3 years (both all A's). Strong points Art teacher is AMAZING! Small, close knit. This year has been difficult; one child in a classroom where there was intermittent heat for the majority of the winter. Also has a teacher that as my child says gets frustrated and screams at the class. In 2nd grade she asked the teacher to go to the bathroom 3 different times over the course of an hour - and was told "NO" - then had an accident in the classroom. In our other classroom - we personally know 4 children that have left the school because of the Administration (specifically Mr. Roche) and 2 more that are looking to leave. Support for diversity and acceptance is a low score for Prescott. Huge issues with unqualified support staff hired to fill multiple positions (none very well) and the safety of children being put knowingly at risk. Also, if a child has an IEP (at ANY level) they are not allowed to participate in the aftercare program. Every child has the right to learn, participate AND be safe at school it just doesn t happen at Prescott."

    "THIS SCHOOL IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Moved here from Florida and choose the area because we have to be sure our big daughter be in the Lincoln Park High School attendance area. This school is our neighborhood school. Since day one this school exceed our expectations. Is a big family . The principal and the staff are so professional and competitive but so nice. All the parents are amazing. We know everyone by names and they know each kids. The school offer everything you kid may need but the give the extra mile to help kids in their self confidence. Great schools need to give this school a 10 score BY FAR. Im so happy that my daughter been in this school for the second grade. Im so happy as a mom and she is so happy. The after school program is amazing. Everything is super organized."
