My son is in the Regional Gifted Center at Pritzker and we love it. His teacher is dedicated and attentive. The work he brings home is challenging and engaging, and he enjoys being with his classmates. Beyond the gifted program, Pritzker offers terrific options for activities, including chess, violin, performing arts and a wonderful before-school program. I particularly like the fact that the gifted program, magnet program and the neighborhood school program combine to make Pritzker a wonderful choice for any child.

My daugther is in the gifted program at Pritzker. She is doing great and loves going to school. She comes home each evening excited about learning and ready to spend time on homework. The school has so many things going for it: a committed group of parents dedicated to making it one of the best elementary schools in the city, community involvement, a diverse student body, and a strong and creative spirit. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about where to put their child next fall, to ask yourself what's really important. Things are not always what they seem to be on the outside. Pritzker is worth a serious look.

Our children are in the gifted program in the lower grades, and they are having really good experiences at Pritzker. Their teachers are great, they're learning a lot, they enjoy school, and their classmates are a nice bunch of kids. The parent and community involvement in the school is excellent, and it's a huge benefit to our whole family that they can attend a good school close to our home. However, the school is definitely in need of new leadership. As other posters have said, the administration has stumbled from one mis-step to another, and the problems with teacher retention and enrollment are serious. Great leadership is the only thing that is keeping Pritzker from being a real gem of a school.

This school has some serious difficulties. It has been in turmoil for several years now. The fourth grade gifted class has had 3 different teachers so far this year. A third grade class is also on its third teacher this year. Last year several of the upper-grades classes suffered from a similar revolving door syndrome as teachers walked out or were re-assigned mid-year. About 25% of the seats in the gifted program went unfilled this fall because parents removed their children over concerns about the quality of the education. About half of the teachers left last year, some in midyear, some at the end of the school year. The nationally-certified teachers are gone. The hardworking, dedicated science teacher for the upper grades left. IEPs are ignored. If you consider this school for your child, go into the situation with your eyes wide open. Visit the school. Take a good look around.

Pritzker offers so many extra curricular activities, before school, after school and even during school! There are many partners and the community and parents all work together to keep Pritzker a great school for our students.

Ms. Frank is the best teacher I've met yet! She is always professional, kind, nurturing and always has high expectations of the students. She never has to raise her voice and always maintains a positive, student-centered classroom!

My daughter loves Pritzker and is very successful in the Regional Gifted Center. She always comes home with stories of what she is learning in the classroom.

My granddaughter, 2 years ago, was told that she couldn't talk, that she couldn't speak English, etc. Now at Pritzker, she has a straight A average! We love it.

I have never seen so many programs offered in one school: fine & performing arts, regional gifted center, Spanish, Chess, Science, before school care, partners w/Wicker Park, homework help clubs, etc. The opportunities are here, the staff and administration are excellent and the parents are devoted. The only area in need of improvement is how we can all continue to work together to accomplish all of our goals. Pritzker has the potential to be the best school in Chicago!

Great school, great staff, great location. The administration is willing to listen to and consider all suggestions in a community effort to continue to improve the school and student success. Everyone in this community works together.

My children LOVE the new climbing wall in the gym! They are also excited about the new art garden and the new playground equipment that will be installed this summer!

A diamond in the rough or a lump of coal? This school has great student diversity (more diverse than most of the regional gifted centers), expanded arts education, a nice location, and some very involved parents who are working hard to make the school better, but -- even after a change of principals -- this school doesn't live up to its potential. A good administration can make all the diffference, but the school administration here seems to stumble from one misstep to another. There are some very good teachers, some mediocre, and some bad. If your child is in the gifted program, s/he will probably have very good teachers for the lower grades. If you are a parent willing to be pushy and vocal about making sure your kid gets the quality education s/he deserves, then you may be happy with this school and may help turn things around.

i am concerned that there is no crossing guard on the corner of Damen Avenue, south of the traffic light. I may be too early, but at 8:45 am, I would assume that a crossing guard should be present.

I love this school for my children. I have two children that attend it, one in middle, one in elementary. I wished there were more passion in creative writing at this school. I hope they consider adding some programs, even for twice a week or something. Overall my children are very pleased with it and are encouraged artistically.

This is my childrens first year at Pritzker and I am more than pleased. I think the start time of 9:30am is excellent for both children and parents. I am also pleased with the math program everyday mathematics. My children actually look forward to school and the fact that they can choose what they want to wear is also an extra added benefit. The principal and assistant principal seem to have a very good grasp of what is required to foster excellence in children. The front office staff has been courteous and helpful. Overall I would say that Pritzker is an excellent school with the potential to be even greater than it already is.

Pritzker School definately needs some restructuring. They have a 'supposed' fine arts program that is almost non-existent. My daughter was accepted to Pritzker School in the 2nd grade and her teachers have gotten progressively worse. Her last teacher offers no stimulation, no challenge and has no expectations of the students. Overall I am disappointed with the scores on the standardized testing as even with the gifted program Pritzker's scores aren't great. I do realize that there have been extinuating circumstances at Pritzker this last year, with the interim principal etc., but I hope that the next year brings abut dramatic change. The one good thing I can say about Pritzker, is that parents are very involved.

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.

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.

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.
