My son is a first grader and in a couple week will be completeing his first year in a public school. Pershing for me has been and excellent school. My son's first grader teacher Mrs. Cole is an excellent teacher and all the teachers that assist her with the children are excellent teachers. My son is reading on his own now, his math skill are improving and most of all he enjoys the day at Pershing. I am enrolling my son in summer school to help him prepare for 2nd grade, a recommendation from Pershing. What is disturbing is that the state of Illinois owes district 100 1.9 million dollars. I as a parent have written to my congressman Lipinski asking how did this happen and to resolve this issue. Dispite the issue Pershing has remaind an excellent school.

This is an amazing school. The teachers are totally devoted to the students, school and community. These are very hard working teachers who work late hours and take work home nightly. You child would be very lucky to have a teacher like the ones at Pershing.

I don't put all the blame on the school the parents are not as involved as they are in other schools in the district. My first daughter went to Emerson and when we moved I noticed a difference as far as parents being involved they have open house well at Emerson every classroom was completely full when at Pershing they are lucky if one class room for every grade is full. The school is trying to do more so, I have to give them credit for it the teachers offer after school for reading and I think that is great that tells me that they do care but you would be surprised that not many kids go and that is not the schools fault that comes back to the parents but I do see alot more parents that do care so maybe this will start to change.

Overrated. Needs alot of work in administration. The teachers dont listen to the kids. Parents don't know what their students deal with on a daily basis.

All four of my kids attended Pershing at one time or another. My daughter is currently enrolled at Pershing. The experience that I have had is a good one. The teachers are very involved with the students and will go out of their way to make sure that the students understand the material that is being taught. For example, my son had a real hard time with his math. His teacher offered to stay after school and tutor him and help him with his homework so that he wouldn't have a hard time the next day in class.
