Oriole Park is one of the best schools in the state. My child is getting a top education and will be more then prepared for any high school he chooses to attend. The staff is supportive and caring. The principal is always there if you have an issue and is great with the kids. The community is very involved in the school. They are always willing to fundraise for the school, for little extras the school needs. The Chinese, Computer, Science and Art/Music programs are excellent! My child is very happy at this school.
Great staff programs and principal. Continues to excel as a neighboorhood school. Needs more fuding to contunue outstanding programs
My sons went from a Baccalaureate, magnet school to Oriole Park and they have flourished. In the magnet school I felt like they were just a number, a butt in the seat, at Oriole Park my boys are treated like individuals and given the time and attention all children deserve. Oriole Park is over -crowded and underfunded but still manages to be one of the best schools not only in Chicago but in the state this doesn't just happen, the tone in this school is set by it's outstanding principal and carries through to the teachers and the parents. I love this school and cannot say enough good things about it..
Oriole park is a fabulous school. Mr. Estrada and his staff do an amazing job making it work for everyone's unique needs.
Great School compared to others in area!!!!!! Our school is one of the best schools in the City of Chicago. Our school gets very limited funding.
Superior Students, Talanted Teachers, Caring Parents. My school is an example of team work. Everybody working together to achieve a common goal. The success of our children.
Nine of my grandchildren attend Oriole Park School and are getting a superior educational experience that will help them achieve what it needed to succeed in life!
This is the best grade school in the city of Chicago. The best teachers are at this school. Save your money on private school the education here blows them away, they can't compete!
Oriole Park School is a phenomenal school with a passionate principal, dedicated, superior teachers and super students. It's the #1 neighborhood school in Chicago in spite of its minimal funding. High performing schools like Oriole Park should be rewarded. Instead, it often seems like the school is being penalized. I am proud to be an Oriole Park School parent.
OPS is a GREAT school!! Great teachers, administrators, parents and students. Everyone works together to assure that the students have the best education possible. A++ rating!!
Having grown up and graduated from the Chicago Public School system, I found myself against sending my kids to Oriole Park. This has all changed after reviewing and visiting Oriole Park. I currently have two children enrolled in this school and I believe Oriole Park is a great example how the Chicago Public Schools can excel. The Principal Mr. Estrada is very passionate about the school and is always looking out for what is best for the children. The overall test score performance for this school has exceeded and will continue to exceed above and beyond the CPS ISAT standards.
My daughter attends this school & it is a wondeful school with great programs.
The school gives high priority to the quality of education and instills discipline and best behavior in students.
The principal as well as the teachers teach the children and parents with all there heart and soul. They create an environment that the children want to learn, and the parents want to be part of. I'm proud to be part of the Oriole Park School.
The teachers and staff would go an extra mile to provide a high standard education and safe environment to students.
Environment is warm and friendly. The students are happy and eager to come to school.
We have superior students and talented teachers. Ours kids thrive in this environment. It's the standard that all schools should be held to. The parents care and are involved. It's the best!
