Chicago Math & Sci Elementary Charter
Develops respect: Neutral

Some students are very respectful; most of the students act like the teachers are there to serve them when and where they want. Teachers were not respected at all.

Depended on the teacher; some gave a lot, some not at all. There were very limited resources at the school, mostly limited to photocopies.

Students are not allowed to learn from their failures. Instead, they are coddled by the staff and administration and told just how special they are. They students that attend college find out really quick just how special they are not and many of them don't make it past their first year. Many students return to the school and inform some staff members that they feel cheated in that they were not properly prepared for the rigors and demands of college.

There is a culture of cheating in this school that is never addressed. Students were caught cheating on one of the mandated standardized exams (using their cell phones to find answers while the teacher was searching the internet). This is just one example of students cheating on exams, papers, etc. The only thing that was done was to just talk about it and throw hands up not knowing what to do. As a teacher you would get in trouble for failing a student for cheating, especially if they were part of the elite group being groomed to promote the school.

All most the the teachers in this school care about is test prep. If it is not preparing students for testing, then they deem it useless.

This is a high school in name only. There is really no variety when it come to classes. Everything at this place seems like it was planned at the last minute.

I am a teacher at this school. This is the best school in the Rogers Park area in terms of safety, success, and test scores. We offer a lot of extra curricular activities and clubs for our students. We have an amazing robotics department. There are about 20 students in this club. Next year, we will expend it to 50 students. Come join us so you can qualify for $16 million in scholarship opportunities.

The staff is highly dedicated. Based on my daughter's experience at CMSA, I would say that most teachers, administrators, and support staff take the time to get to know individual students and make an effort to work with their strengths and around their weaknesses. My daughter, who is going to be a senior this year, can be quite difficult at times. However, even she agrees that the CMSA has succeeded in creating a caring and nurturing environment.

Actually They don't show lessons from Youtube. I'm a student from this school since 6th grade and i love this school. They teach us real good. They get their lessons from books and their own knowledge not from youtube.. (:
