I would not send my child to Pritzker School. The staff is very uncaring if you are not part of the cliche. My child's academic needs were not met at te school. The administration can be rude sometimes about voicing your concerns.. the middle school programs need to be revamped to meet the mathematical needs of middle school students.

Pritzker is a great school!! If you would like to find out more and talk to a variety of parents...Join us for Popsicle Pop-Ins on Saturday July 21st from 10 to 11 and Saturday August 18th 10 to 11 on the school playground (Evergreen). We all work together to make it work.

I think the majority of the teachers at Pritzker are good teachers and care for their students. I can't say the same for the principal, assistant principal and front staff, there are bully situations that are taking place and have taken place and the front staff, discipline staff , and principal have handled it poorly. If this school wants to continue with such a good reputation I think that someone needs to go in and evaluate how things are being handled on a daily bases. I just hope that something can be done before another child is a victim of bulling and gets seriously hurt.

PRITZKER SCHOOL IS THE BEST! I have one child at this school who cannot say enough good things about all that is happening at Pritzker. The school has soooo much talent that they are having 2 theater productions this year: Fiddler on the Roof and One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Hope to be here for a long time!

My daughter is a 2011 class graduate and she misses the school. The teachers are fantastic . When she needed help/tutoring all her teachers were there for her. They have a strict no bullying policy to make sure your child is in safe environment. They have countless activities from rock climbing to dance. Pritzker brought the best out of my daughter and I am forever thankful. She graduated on honor roll and with fond memories at Pritzker.

Really fantastic. My daughter is in the options program and we expected a lot. Pritzker is delivering in spades. We moved in from the suburbs for a year before our daughter started school. We were going to move back out for better schools, but then we found this fantastic place.

This school covers it all. In the five years my daughter has been here, they have made great gains. The staff is young, beautiful (inside and out), strong, energetic, enthusiastic, competent, effective, communicative and much much more! Administration is strong and solid. Parental involvement is always present. The talent and opportunities are busting out of this school at the seams! From the moment you walk in you are captivated by the Art Institute art work, bulletin boards, announcements, and more. My child is very happy, I couldn't be happier and we hope to find a high school as good as Pritzker! There are so many options and opportunities for all...

Our kids our proud to be part of the Pritzker family (Fine Arts and Gifted programs). I'm happy to be part of a parent community that cares, commits, and gives back to their school.

The school building needs attention and renovations but the staff and administration it holds have passion and intelligence that will inspire your child. We were previously paying a substantial fund for preschool and would happily have continued to do so IF WE had seen the passion we saw at Pritzker. What we have seen and loved in the gifted program: adapting the difficulty level of assignments and extra challenges in works. The before school program, k (and upwards) receives art, music, PE, spanish, and library. Every child can play a part in a theatrical production if they choose. A parent organization which has gathered funds for a new K playground and upper grades science lab. The website is informative; check it out. Like any large organization, there has been miscommunication but my questions have always been met with quality and thoughtful answers. If you are searching through all of this for OAE applications, you are the reason I wrote this. I was worried about our choice, our son could have tested into any school but we put Priitzker first because we saw him there and when he comes home off the bus he has many stories of good kids and good adults who surround him.

My two children attend this school in the fine arts program. We love it! The teachers are wonderful, and the school is bursting with activities and involved parents and kids. We have been glad we chose this for our children!

We are a family friendly phenomenal fine arts school. I often feel that we are the young Julliard of Chicago. We have a diverse atmosphere with an exceptional teaching staff that constantly strives to enrich the minds of our children. My sons and I love it.

I love Pritzker because it is so diverse. The teachers and students are so unique. The atmosphere is like a big family. They have a few after school programs, but we need more!

Been at Pritzker for many years. All my boys think that Pritzker's teachers are great.

Pritzker Elementary in Chicago's Wicker Park goes the extra mile to bring great teachers, great programs and great life lessons to an extreemly talented and eclectic student body. Pritzker offers an amazing and varied art, music and theater program, before and after school activities, and a comprehensive support system via the staff and teachers who are engaged and motivated. The school's top priority is the safety and well-being of its families, not its 'demographic'. Prtizker Rocks!

I like that they have a lo of great arts programs for the kids like a real art and music room and have Spanish twice a week. They also have a lot of great family programs throught the year that are fun and a learning experience too. All of the teachers are warm and welcoming and willing to meet with you anytime you want to discuss something about your child. The Principal has alos listened to some of my suggestions and implemented them.

Our child is in the options program kindergarten. We have been thrilled with the teacher and the school. The school is open and welcoming to parents, and is rewarded with a high level of parental involvement. The before school program, a partnership between school administration and parents, is impressive. We have been very happy with our son's experience.

Pritzker is fantastic. They have so many opportunities for all areas: Science, Drama, Art, etc. My daughter is very happy and ... is very challenged academically.

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.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
