The Principal, Sarah Abedela, doesn't care about the kids in the school. She is very rude to the parents, staff and the children. She just cuts you off mid sentence. I just moved to this area, in January, and was told that this is the only school I can put my children in because of the boundary area. Someone really needs to investigate the principal. There is no way she should be in charge of the success of our children's' future.

Brennemann School is one of the top schools in uptown. The school has high expectations for all students and students leave prepared for high school. Class sizes are small and students get interventions based on their academic needs. The school team has written and received numerous grants to ensure the students have the resources and tools to be successful.

Good school for toddlers not for older kids. If you want your child to be computer literate or book smart you won't get it at this school. If they'r taking the ISAT, then they are being drilled for weeks so they can do good on the scores. Toward the end of the year they give project after project for these kids who get no REAL computer time and who's library usage consists on the books they have in class. Bear in mind the teachers do what they are told or are yelled at by the principle and your kids will see a tearful teacher. If your a mother prepare to have a hostel greeting to your concerns. It would be best to have your husband present when speaking to the principle: Sarah D Abedelal. She will try and intimidate you and ask if your ready to transfer your child rather than working together. If you live in the area you can sign your kids up for after school programs because that's where the school learning starts. Its not really the schools fault rather the leadership with in it. You can pass children but give them the basses to learn and be able to use for future learning not setting them up to fail in life.

I have no idea how or why the principal, Sarah Abedela, is still working at this school. She is terrible to her staff and never does anything in the better interest of the children. I saw that she has a lawsuit against her by another teacher and I hope that it gets her out of the school. The students and teachers deserve more and should not be in an enviornment where they are treated so badley.

I also went to Brenneman in the 60's and 70's when the school was new. I agree that the principal, Miss Sager was old, cruel and did not connect well with students. I had some great teachers, though and got an amazing education there. I went on to college, and am now an Art Teacher. Some of the teachers that made a big impact on me were Miss Brophy, Ms. Simmons, Miss McCune, Miss Nakagawa, Miss Crosby, Mrs. Borgminario, and Mr. Wilson (Gym Teacher) My older brother really connected with Mr. Levin. I also made some great friends while at Brenneman and still connect with some of them.

the new principal dosn't care about the childern at this school at all and i talk from experience i went there for eight years. the principal only has select favorites that arn't even good kids. i feel bad for the kids still going ther because the curriculum is lower than average and the children do not get any quality education.


Posted October 20, 2012

I went there in the 60s for 7th and 8th grade the school was like brand new.My teacher was one of only a few male teachers his name was Mr Levin.He was hard core but very good,he was the science teacher.The principal was an old lady named Mrs Sager.She was mean,crule and what she did'nt know about kids was alot.Charles Manson wou'ld have been better then her.Have been looking for this teacher Mr.Levin to let him know his teachings realy payed off just like he said it would.He told me to stay in art,and i did.I have made a large fortune due to him.He was the only one that belived in me during a rough time in my life.My hats off to you william were ever you might be thx.

Joseph Brennemann Elementary School was progressing when Mr. Otis Dunson was the principal. The principal is very uninvolved with the students and parents. She brushes or dismisses parents as if they were children. She brags about her child going to a private school and how advanced her child is. The present principal is seldom in the school because she is concentrating on her doctorate degree. I know of a child (4th grader) that was sent to her office and the principal did not let the child eat lunch, and she made the child stand up the whole time the child was in the principal's office. I have called the superintendent of our school district but I think the two of them are buddies. When I was attending the LSC meetings, I was overlooked by most of the members including the principal, when I voiced my concerns via questions. I pray that the Lord will remove this principal out of the children's lives and replace her with a caring principal that does REALLY care about the success of the children...and why wouldn't he or she. The children attending this school are reflections of the educators who are to mold and shape the children's live, preparing for the future.

I am a jr going on to be a sr in High school. When I went to brennemann, some of the teachers did not care bout the students. Said that they dont care they was getting a paycheak, they didnt care if we was goin to fail, we was goin to be there next yr. Made me and other classmates stand in two lines like pre-k and kindergraters. brennemann never really treated us with respect.


Posted February 10, 2010

when i transferred to this school this year i was shocked! i'am in 8th grade and the students in my class act like 4th graders, it pretty pathic. the other students so soo disrecpectful and have NO self control! its impossable just to learn a lesseon. esscaillay since i want to get some wheere in life!. the school lunches are AWFUL! at my old school we had gym everyday and we got to pick classes that we wanted like art, choir, band, spanish, french, health, etc... not only this but they make us walk in lines with our teacher! when i was in middle school we had a lot of freedom anndd i just feel like kindergrater again its ridcouls. the teacher dont know how to teacher and i most say it seem likes they dont care about the students at all.

At the risk of dating myself, the new principal Mr. Dunson=MacGyver. From his actions, he is very innovative, and is not afraid to break out of the mold.

The school is upcoming Mr .Dunson,the new principal, is doing a wonderful job. My child will be attending the second grade this year. Her experince with Mrs.Owens in the first grade was great.

AWFUL! The principal is terrible. They treat the students like animals, & could care less about the students learning. No wonder all the students are so far behind! I would pull my child out asap. All of the complaints coming from students are 100% validated! Who punishes a student by making them stand up to do his/her work? This school needs quality teachers who care and have a passion to teach as well as a principal who cares about creating a positive learning enviornment where the students progress.

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.

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.
