The exterior of the school looks promising. The grounds are clean and secure. Much to my surprise, it was the blatant ignorance of Principal Webb that left me speechless. He referred to the students, even as young as kindergarten, as thugs and gangbangers! His granmar and speech was nothing short of unprofessional. I was truly surprised and disheartened with his demeanor as the building leader. If the image this principal had of his students is so low, there is no question why Foster Park has been rated a Level 3 school. Perhaps CPS should reevaluate the so-called leaders they assign to building who pretend to care about children, but clearly come to collect their six-figure checks.

Mrs. Young and Ms. Walker are excellent teachers. My children have had both of these teachers. They work you but it is so worth it.
