I strongle disagree w/ the post made on Oct6, 2009. I have children that attend Waters & I am greatful they go there. I completely disagree w/ the statement made that the kids in the higher grades misbehave uncontollably & may be a bad influence...THIS IS TOTALLY FALSE! I have a child in the middle school & many of those kids are very respectful & courtious. There are no major behavioral problems, no gang problems, the police are not called to the school, etc. Waters is a great school, academically it is challenging and also Waters allows has alot of parental involvement.

Whoever posted the last neagtive review obviously has not been in the school. If they had they would have seen well behaved kids anxious to learn. The school has had a rennaisance over the last few years with more neighborhood families deciding to attend this fine arts school. Test scores are up - but more importantly the the parent commmunity is committed to making this school one of the best in Chicago. If you live in the area - you owe it to yourself to at least take the tour - we did and our two kids couldn't be happier.

This school is a negative choice in my opinion,the teachers are nurturing, but no real learning goes on as far as i am concerned. Kids misbehave uncontrolably in the higher grades , they may be a bad influence. My advice- dont even bother

Contrary to the last post, the assistant principal has very dark hair...don't know who she was talking about! The administration, staff and parents are very caring and supportive. There is a great team of hands-on parents. The school is doing a fantastic job of transforming itself and making green improvements while retaining its Spanish-speaking families. The school is diverse and close knit at the same time. It's a great place to send your kids...good things are happening at Waters! I have two kids there and anticipate sending my third in a couple of years.

When we first moved to Lincoln Sqaure we had concerns about where our kids would go to school. Hats off to the parents who rolled up there sleeves and got involved because the school has never looked better. My daughter now attends and my son will join her in the fall. We've been so impressed with the warmth and caring of the teachers we've met, and the parents group really has moved mountains. Looking forward to the construction being finished so that the rest of the neighborhood will know what a gem this school is. If you are still looking for a school, this one should be on your list.

I have 2 children at Waters. The community effort has been amazing. They have truly been making things happen over the past few years...which is a very difficult task in the CPS system. My children are being sufficiently challenged and inspired. They both love their teachers. My only dissatisfaction is not in the schools power. These differences could only be made if there was adequate funding and improvement with the national norms for public schools. Lack of PE, arts, and a need to 'teach for the tests' is a systemic problem. In light of that, Waters is doing what they can to provide the type of education they feel is best to holistically educate the children-- while still trying to improve teat scores. The ecology program is unmatched. I am proud that my kids are learning the invaluable lesson of the benefits of community activism.

Waters is a model of a neighborhood school. My two children have gone there - one currently and the other graduated from there and is now at Lane Tech. Waters art and environmental programs are unparalleled in the school system. These programs provide a nurturing atmosphere for the kids. Plus, the conscious approach by the teachers and administration, parents and community to multi-lingual and multi-cultural education based on equality is an enormous asset to the children's learning. Parent and community involvement is on an incredibly high level - and that approach has been built up for the last 15 years. Waters faces what all public schools face - budget cuts, anti-public school smears that includes racism and families that face real economic problems. For example, rents and housing costs in Waters area have been going up and pricing working families out of the neighborhood. That's why having strong community backing is so great.

This school is all about community and integrated learning and we are pleased with that! We feel lucky to be a part, and know that our daughter is getting just what she needs regarding education, socialization and compassion for people and the planet. This school has so many great things going for it and great people are at the top of the list!

My son started at the tuition-based Pre-K this spring and has had a very good experience. The teacher and aides do a great job with curriculum, and are also very caring. We'll be back next year!

I have lived in the area for over 18yrs. MY oldest son graduated from Waters & now my younger son will be graduating this June. My kids have gone to several different schools before Waters thinking other Magnet Schools were different. I am so pleased with Waters School, the teachers are great & the students are very appreciative. It is located in a very safe family oriented neighborhood.

Our 7 year old is thrilled to have been accepted at Waters. We entered through the Options Program and I drive my son to school. Our son is very excited about the stimulating hands on approach at Waters. Ecology, the arts, and technology are integrated beautifully here. This is a school that cares about the children's emotional and educational needs. We have found the staff to be supportive and compassionate as well as passionate and enthusiastic about teaching at Waters. There is a high level of parental involvement and enthusiasm at this school which is refreshing to experience. Community involvement is also highly valued here. Test scores are on the rise. It is of major importance to see the jump in the third grade scores in 2006 that hit 90%! It is obvious children are thriving here under new management. We highly recommend Waters as a school on the rise!

We live in the neighborhood and are thrilled with the positive changes and parental involvement going on at the school. This is our daughter's first year there in the tuition-based pre-k and we couldn't be happier with the program and the teachers. She is really blossoming as a result of this pre-k. The school is turning a corner with the help of a new principal, dedicated teachers and involved parents, but it's going to take time and commitment. We're beautifying the school one step at a time so the surroundings speak to what a great school it is becoming - with very unique programs like an ecology program, city garden, stellar fine arts education; etc.

I'm surprised at the previous negative post. My daughter is in tuition-based pre-K now and I couldn't be happier with it. The teacher is fabulous. And clearly the previous poster didn't peek into the tbpk room because every toy, costume and stick of furniture is brand new. Yes, some of the hallways still need new paint, but they are obviously making steady progress on the building. And anyway, I'm more inclined to place higher priority on the staff and learning experience for the students. While I can't speak about other grades yet, I do think Waters has some things other area schools can't offer - namely an emphasis on teaching Spanish language - even in Pre-K! And also there's the school gardens and ecology programs. My daughter came home one day very excited about digging for carrots and potatoes in the garden. That to me is unique in this big city!

Here is what I observed from Waters school: Dirty, Disorganized, and I was shocked at how the blonde vice-principal talked to parents. I had heard there were supposed to be some positive changes going on in this school.That is what made me tour the school in the first place. I would rather home school my child then send them to Waters School. Hopefully the parents that did choose to send their kids there are able to get into some of the better schools in the area for the next school year. There was not even soap in the kids bathroom.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
