Garvy School is probably one of the best Chicago public schools on the northwest side. They have a brillant young principal and she has a great staff. We are very lucky to have excellant teachers, a LSC that cares, and a strong PTA. All we need is the board of education to provide some financial help on the northwest side to improve over crowding, and materials our school needs to better educate our children.
My grandchildren attend Garvy. I truly believe that this school is on top of every students educatonal performance. My grandchildren thought that it would be a breeze but soon they found out that if they did not perform well in school the parents would be notified. I applaud the school for this action. They are progressively getting better and are learning that they can not get away with not trying hard or doing there homework. We are very happy that we have been fortunate to be able to have our children in this wonderful school.
I am a parent of a student that goes to that school. My sun seems to be getting more vialant by day, and the teachers in there are so mean and I think they are discusted by are children. Ms. Mcglade [princapal] is very mean towards the boys and if they get in trouble with girls the boys always get the detentions and the girls that had a part in the problem do not get anything. My opinion is that this school is not safe for students and should be put under new managment.
