We were lucky enough to get a spot at Edgebrook through the CPS lottery. I thought it would be difficult for my child switching schools, but it has been wonderful. She's made many new friends and is finally being challenged academically. We love the school and feel very fortunate to be there. The new principal is always available and working hard to keep Edgebrook among the best in Chicago.

Great school community. Primary grade teachers have all been wonderful, creative teachers. The school is very responsive to kids and families needs. Leadership with a vision and very child-centered. Terrific school!

We moved to the neighborhood after hearing great things about Edgebrook School. I have to say that we are quite disappointed. It appears that most of the teaching happens at home and is re-enforced at school which appears to be backwards. Also, homework goes unchecked for several weeks and we question the quality of education our children are receiving here. In our opinion, the school rankings are reflective of the parental involvement in this school rather than the teaching standards, which appear to be mediocre to say the least. We will be looking at other options next year.

I absolutely loathe this school's middle school! It is graded on something called the effort system, where you are graded on how hard you try. This is specifically for homework only. So you can get 100% even if you get all the answers wrong but as long as you did your homework, you get a good grade.

You are soon getting what will be the most amazing Principal to ever lead any school!! Congratulations!! He's truly incredible!


Posted May 29, 2013

Congratulations to all the kids moving up to the next level! You all take so much pride in your work and your test scores show it! A great family atmosphere and community support system!

Lots of bullying by parents as well as students. Unfortunately, the current principal and employees clearly favor the bully parents and also participate in bullying the others. Very rude staff. My daughter is in her third year here and the academics are just okay. New principal coming soon so hopefully some things will change. It is very clear that special treatment is given to certain parents and students, whom the rules to not apply to. As stated by some other reviewers, this school has a very "elitist" attitude and if you are not in the "elite" group, you and your child/children can be treated badly by the schoo, schizophrenia, and other students.

Great School. One of the very best neighborhood schools. Dedicated core of experienced teachers and staff. Committed parent volunteers make this school a great community experience.

alot of homework and alot of pressure on students. Puts alot of stress on them and techers are very hard on students. has no art classes a crowded classes. they are improving this but they could use some work for making school a little bit less stressful and fun other than work all the time stress and four hours of homework for older students.


Posted May 17, 2009

Alot public schools in Chicago. Hard to find one less crowded than Edgebrook. Should complain to CPS about the increasingly crowded situation, an issue beyond the administration of school principal or teachers. Each state has a standard test to evaluate whether or not a student has met some minimum requirements. Just like teaching a toddler how to walk or how to use bathroom at the age of 2. Thirteen public schools citywide were closed by CPS last year due to lower academic performance on ISAT. Edgebrook teachers are helping every single student to meet those minimum requirements. No child left behind! Schools are places for an all-round education not just for fun. Our grumpy parent(s) should send their children to an day care amusement park. Unfortunately, even places like Six Flag have failed to attract children under economic crisis.

I agree at most of positive reviews. you can not find a better non-selective elementary public school in Chicago than this one. The school's performance is at the similar level as those highly selective schools'. the school chess teams won again in 2009 CPS city championships (www.cpschess.com). Some parents criticized the school about a little bit pushing their students for academic achivements. I can imagine how these parents will comment on those selective gift or classical elementary public schools should their children go to Decater or Edison.

Wonderful school! Excellent curriculum. Teachers go above and beyond for the students. Administration is professional yet approachable. The parental and student communities are very close and supportive. Yes, overcrowding is a issue. The school is so good that people keep moving to Edgebrook for it. We are keeping our fingers crossed for an addition one day.

We couldn't be happier with the quality of education at Edgebrook. Now they just need to build an addition to handle the 45 new students they are growing by every year!

Still substandard compared to several years ago. Still waiting for all those promised 'grants.; classes over crowded. Kids lose out. Discipline had become a huge issue. Leadership poor. Perhaps when someone new comes in because Arne Duncan is gone, clout will not rule.

We came to Edgebrook School in September 2007 and are very happy we did. The academic program is very good, maybe not a grade level ahead of other schools, but still very advanced. Edgebrook does teach to the test, however they also allow for much creativity in teaching and learning styles. Teachers realize that there is more than one way to learn and they teach in a variety of ways. The principal, Mrs. Kepka, is awesome. She is very aware of the hoops that have to be jumped through in order to get anything, besides promises, from CPS. She puts in many extra hours to help make the school what it is. The PTA and LSC are also phenomenal (just wish more parents would come to the meetings and share ideas). Lots of volunteering opportunities are available. Family fun programs, arts and sports programs, science and technology programs, all on the rise. Children are taught good values at home and that carries over into the school. This school is more like a community and all take responsibility. Lack of space is a HUGE problem. Did I say that we LOVE this school?

Excellent curriculm but issues with parents bullying from students concern me greatly. Also school lacks programming to deal with above stated problems. Overly obsessed and concerned with ISAT testing . Strange enviornment. Great presure to donate money to fund for science lab, fund for teachers, PTA etc. Elitist campus community that parents create and some school personal buy into. Do you drive the right kind of car? Are you a single parent? Where do you live? Do you live in the neighborhood? God forbid you have a special needs child or the child is 'different' in any way. I ended up moving to Niles, IL and I am much happier.

best neighborhood school in Chicago City. highly experienced teachers and a wonderful new principal. your kids can make lots of friends here. safe neighborhood and dedicated parents. the only complaint: Chicago public system should have put more money for a larger teaching building to meet the requirement of expanding size of student body.

Edgebrook is a great school and is the best neiborhood school in Chicago. Not only has its academic performance outscored that of some gifted elementary schools, but also its extracurriculum activities are making fantastic success. The school's chess team has been among the top two in sections 1-2, 3-4, and 6-8 citywide in the school year 2007-2008.

We are in our first school year at Edgebrook. Thus far we have been pleased with the school. Our child appears happy and is challenged with the work. Expect homework. The experience with our current teacher has been positive. There is an advanced reading program and all students are encouraged to do extra reading to score points as part of this program. Reading is emphasized.

unfortunately, my sister had a very bad experience. it was a cold, rude enviromentment for her child and an 'elitest' attitude. her child went there for a short time and was bullied and was not happy.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
