    "Everything about this school is TERRIBLE! They have great teachers,but the kids are so sneaky that the teachers dont know what is going on. They swear and stuff, almost half the 7th grade has gum in a day. terrible school lunches. They only get about 15 minutes of recess and 30 minutes of lunch. Only 45 minutes of break! thats only 15 more before the day was made longer 2 years ago. All they did was make each class about 45 minutes longer. I know kids need a break and 45 minutes out of a 7 hour day is crazy. Even though it says its a level one school, u can only know the truth as a middle school student in that grade, and it's not so great."

    "What does one look for in a good school? Is it the test performance ? Yes.it is! Is it the quality of learning they recieve?? Yes it is . But what counts the most to the families of children that are a part of Dever?? Since talking to other moms as the new school year is upon us .. I noticed what they like best as well as myself is that no child is to fall behind .. And any and every problem is addressed . No matter what the problem . Yes at times I've heard of some teachers being a little rough with punishments and words .. But isn't this all apart of life?? They will not always have a perfect day at wrk .. Or college or in general and some days will be bad but it's how we as parents react .. Thus etching child about adversity . I believe that Dever is one of the top schools in Chicago .. Yay Dever!"

    "When my son started here in the 1st grade (he's now in 4th) I couldn't have been happier. Since then my opinion of the school has dropped dramatically! The kids don't get a proper lunch (my son eats at his desk!?) and now that the day has been extended to re-incorporate things such as recess I come to find out that they don't even get a proper recess on most days! I don't understand what kind of mental break and unwinding the students are supposed to get from getting crammed into a stuffy auditorium where half the time they can't even talk. The school is overcrowded with classrooms nearing, if not exceeding, 30 students per teacher! The school has an enrollment that exceeds it's capacity! With so many schools closing due to low enrollment, this one is busting at the seams! Over enrollment is a diisservice to the children, as well as the teachers and staff! I believe it's starting to take a toll on everyone, probably explains how Dever ended up on academic probation this year. From placing in the top 5% of all CPS schools back in 2009/2010 to being on AP today? All that aside, the teachers and staff do a much better job than expected given the situation."

    "Chicago is probably one of the shittiest schools of all time. All they do is teach us how to memorize, and do meaningless equations that have no relevance to anything that is done by adults in everyday life."
