This school is one of the best schools in Chicago. This was my children first year here and they can't wait to come back especially for the french class. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend this Charter school to every parent looking for a great Chicago school. My son has an IEP and his teachers are excellent in helping him reach his goals before the end of the school year. Keep up the great work CICS Lloyd Bond!!!

CICS Lloyd Bond is a fantastic community of gifted teacher and students that are eager to learn. The staff at Bond is always working hard to make sure that all students are provided with the best possible learning environment. The teaching staff is always working hard to develop new exciting ways to educate the students in various subject areas. All staff members participate in professional development at least every other week. The administration is fantastic and very helpful to parents, students, and staff. Everyone at Bond is dedicated to making the school a special place where students can learn and feel safe while doing it.

I have four children which attends CICS Lloyd Bond. I am very impressed by the teachers as well as administrative staff. My children love this school. I love this school on every aspect, from academically to socially. I love the way the teachers interact the students as well as parents. You don't have to wait for your child's progress report or report card to know how things are going, because the teachers call you and tell you if they have any concerns or just to let you know how well your child is doing. I love their teaching curriculum as well, it seems to be a lot more challenging then the last school my children attended ( which was a magnet school). The teachers are incredibly well-prepared and enthusiastic when teaching the children. The teachers are very dedicated to teaching and love what they do as well. I don't think I could have picked a better school. Only thing I wish they had was a foreign language class.

I am a grandparent of two students and a foster parent of one IEP student. Up til now I have been extremely satisfied with the results of my childrens' academics at the school. But recently I have seen some things that need tweaking. I have brought it to the attention of the teachers and adminstrators and I am now seeing some progress in these matters. But if I had to give an overall rating of the school and its staff it would be four stars. The teachers are willing to listen and the principal will gladly work with you on any subject. I have even been tutored by the assistant principal in math so that I may help my children with their homework. I feel as though my children are at a school with dedicated teachers and staff, even the security team are inviting and dedicated to our children with their safety first mind. I have recommended this school to parents all over and am very proud to say that my children attend this school. If you have a student with special needs such as an IEP I suggest this school because they will ensure that your child gets the help they need to succeed..

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

 
 

Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
