This school has low test scores the teacher teach in Spanish in the non Spanish classes. They do not send information out in a timely fashion all the people giving this school a good grade are part of the in-crowd. This school has be on probation for five years and the children show signs of that.

Funston Elementary is the proverbial diamond in the coal mine of the Westside of Chicago. The teachers there put the fun in Funston, incorporating games and other fun activities into the students learning.

I think Funston School is a great School but needs improvments in security because the security officer they have there is very snobby and she isn't doing her job. The only thing I like about the school is Mrs. Tamberrino.
