i travel to all cps schools for my position with safety and security, and Kilmer has improved tremendously over the last three years of me visiting the school. the administration is a joy to work with and the teachers are all friendly but firm. i am shocked by the rating of only 2 out of 10, because i have been all over the city and this school should be rated so much higher than that now.

This school has gone through MANY changes, some great others not so great. I've seen them grow little by little. The new leadership is awesome. They are really getting involved in the school and community. The kids seem excited to find out what will happen next.

Kilmer is doing really great things. The staff works very hard and is deeply involved in the community. They have new administration and are collaborating with the new administration at Sullivan High School to be the premiere neighborhood schools in Rogers Park. I believe in what they are doing and support them fully. As the flyer says, "Kilmer is Growing". I recommend going to see what is going on at Kilmer. You'll be impressed.

School should have been CLOSED for under performance. The kids of this school will suffer cause of the lack of quality teaching. There rank is almost the WORST 2 out of 10 says it all. CLOSE KILMER or TURN IT AROUND.

Is a terrible school I had a bad experience with two teachers.First with Mrs SALAS she thinks parents are ignorants that we don't have education.Once she try to raise the voice at me in front of parents and I scream at her.back.Onother terrible teacher is Mr.JIBAJA my son was in class.some kids in the classroom where bullying my son.So I went and talk to the teacher about it I was so surprise what he told me.He said my son was old enough to handle it and that he noticed those kids where bothering but he couldn't to nothing about it.My son was 7 Years old.I think my son was bullying by the teacher too.Not a safe school.Thank god my kids are no longer in that terrible school!!!.

This is a terrible school that is grooming their horrible students to attend and even more dismal Sullivan HS. I can't believe the lack of pretty much everything at this school. No art classes, no extracurricular activities. My child refers to it as Kilmer Fight Club since violence among the students is so prevalent. I would have never moved into this neighborhood if I would have known how awful this school is.

Kilmer went from a struggling neighborhood school to one of the best in a few short years. My daughter is in Mr. Finlay's pre-k class and is loving it! She is also being encouraged by Mrs. Colon to expand her Spanish vocabulary. Being bi-lingual in this country is a must for the future. With all the red tape public school teachers have to wade through, the teachers at this school are trying their best to better their school and have made great strides. It is up to the parents and the community to support their neighborhood public schools to make them the type of schools they want to send their kids to. Kilmer is a good school with a very bright future!

Great Pre-k program, Mr. Finlay and Ms. Colon are two of the best in the city! My son learned so much and loved going to school. Keep up the great work.
