This school was good but racist. I felt bad for the black and Asian students because they didn't do anything when they were getting made fun of their race. Also there is this gangs between Bridgeport and canaryvile kids were doing. The names of the gangs were; KKK wannabees, 30 30, 42 42 or 40 40, and Taylor Duddleston gang. If you look on these children s Facebook pages you will see them sticking up their gang signs. The Causian people were not ready for hanging out the black people because either their parents were racist or their friends were. On the good side the teachers were getting you ready for high school and college. I was a former student that went there now I m at St. Ignatius, I have a little brother in 6th grade in 301.
I LOVE this school! It has great education and it's great for kids. The teachers, principle, and staff are amazing too. My child goes there and tells me her day everyday. :)
As a college professor who has conducted research in urban public schools and as parent of a MS student, I have come to appreciate the effort that MS faculty and staff continue to make to ensure the success of students . It starts at the front door with the Principal who knows students by their names and greets them at the school door. It continues in the classroom with a teacher who types an individualized progress report for my daughter at the end of each semester. It extends to relationships with parents who are welcomed into the life and environment of the school. And finally, it continues in the way that the administrators, faculty, and staff "make it work" for the students. MS is an island in the CPS system. When are schools are failing just blocks away, MS continues to succeed with a very diverse student population and diminished resources. No whining. No belly-aching about the performance reviews. No negativity. Just doing school as it ought to be done everywhere in Chicago!
I have two kids that went to MSA. One has graduated and the other is in 7th. The school is great and the teachers really do care about your child and their relationship with the parents. Majority of the teachers are very understanding and approachable. The involvement of the parents at school is great. No matter what the event was there is always a group of parents helping out. Most of all the school is challenging and prepares the children for high school very well. I am very proud to say I am a wildcat mom and I recommend this school.
This is the fourth year that my two children (who are currently in grades 3 and 4) have attended MSA, and I could not be more pleased. My children are given demanding and thought-provoking work and homework that does not exceed their abilities but demands their best work. The teachers at MSA are involved, in close contact with me, and work incredibly hard. The administration is available and accessible. The school's anti-bullying policy has been a huge benefit to my daughter and my son has received excellent special education support from the IES department as well as his regular ed. teachers. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to watch our children thrive at MSA.
Mark Sheridan is a 'Spotlight' school, which speaks for itself. The structure of the classes beginning with kindergarten is symbolic of the character of the instructors and the principle when it comes to defining a solid knowledge base. The children are taught to be responsible and self-directed, which is a plus in today's society.
The school provides a conducive, intellectual learning environment for students. Students are trained to think outside the box and develop critical thinking skills which is necessary in a changing and competitive society.
Mark Sheridan is a great school...the education my children have received and continue to receive is among the best
Mark Sheridan is the best of the best public school in Chicago. Awesome principal, faculty and dedicated parents help to make sure all kids excel in a creative, supporting environment.
My family loves how small, and close everyone is in the school. A great learning environment, wonderful teachers. Just a awesome school! We're so fortunate that are child attends Sheridan Math and Science Academy.
Mark Sheridan Academy is a school that prides itself with excellence. As a single parent of two children, the Faculty and Staff are truly there for me. MSA has a welcoming environment that enables all children, even those with disabilities, to have an equal chance of empowering themselves. I am truly grateful that MSA strives to create future leaders for this world.
I am ecstatic on what my son is learning and that he is enjoying the process.
From the top down, there is a commitment to be good leaders and role models. There is true and real desire by the entire faculty to educate the whole child by doing the right thing not just saying it.
One of Mark Sheridan's best attributes is the fact that the teachers and parents care about the quality of education the children receive and work together well to achieve that standard. A key to a good school is not only the great faculty that works there, but the community that surrounds it. Mark Sheridan is that school, they as well as the neighborhood deserve that money because they have earned it. Thankyou for this opportunity, this school will use that money to its full potential if awarded it.
I have two boys at Mark Sheridan they have learned so much from the great teachers that they have had each year.
Because students get the focus and attention they need to excel in school and they're also given the confidence to never give up.
This is my daughters first year at Mark Sheridan and I am very pleased. The academic program is challenging and the teachers are amazing. I can't inmagine a better school for my child.
great teachers - they make learning fun! I am constantly impressed by what my child is learning!
