    "We switched from a Catholic school to Pulaski to 'try it out' since we had heard good things about it and it is actually our neighborhood school. One of the best decisions ever! I am a fairly involved parent and I love seeing how parent/teacher effort and participation really impacts the school and the larger community. Pulaski has started doing 'socials' for parents and the community members which is a great way to connect with other families. At an academic level, I can't thank enough the teachers for their dedication. My son at the end of first grade was reading at a level appropriate for a second grader ( end of school year). He also developed such a love for books that he knows the hours for the nearby public library by heart. Between discipline and academic excellence, I truly believe I have found the school that meets our educational needs. 5+ years ago the school was somewhat struggling but this has dramatically changed. There also have been numerous facilities and grounds improvements such as building out an outdoor classroom and a sensory garden."

    "I currently have first grader at Pulaski and could not be happier. We live just outside the neighborhood and wanted a great community school with a strong curriculum. Pulaski fit that bill. We are so fortunate to have gotten called off the waitlist. The IB program is fantastic. Such a grounded and well rounded curriculum and I hear my child speaking the IB language daily. She has learned so much. She has fantastic teachers. I am amazed with them daily and we are thrilled with Dr Bedard and the administration. She hit the ground running and has brought nothing but positive energy to the school every single day. I also enjoy being an involved parent with so many opportunities to help out. We look forward to many wonderful years ahead at Pulaski!"

    "I currently have a first grader at Pulaski. I am proud of our neighborhood school-we specifically bought in Bucktown for this school. I am an involved parent and love the community we're building here. My son is excelling here in the IB program. We're looking forward to our future at Pulaski!"

    "Pulaski school is simply the best. My son has been there 3 years now and I could not be happier and more convinced I made the right choice. The teachers are amazing at what they do, they are all experienced, innovative and ceative with their teaching methods at all levels and grades while also being very caring and supportive. The genuinely care about all the kids well being, academic advancement and are great role models. The parent involvement here amazes me. A great number of parents volunteer all of their free time to coordinate activities, clubs, bus and parent pick up and drop offs, child safety and more. Not to mention the great IB programs offered by Columbia College."
