I am the parent of three kids at Dawes. All my children have amazing, dedicated teachers. Can't beat 3 for 3!

The bar needs to be raised. The curriculum as well as the learning environment for students needs a improvement. Overall, the staff is friendly, but it is not enough to have a high-performing school.

Dawes School is one of the best School that my daughter has gone to in the Chicago Area..I like their staff and all their teachers are very professional starting with their principal,Ms. Karen Bradley. Their after school program is also one that I like most,what with the participation of all retired professionals from the community pooling their talents in helping these students set their goals in life in proper perspective. The school building has really improved , I just hope they make their auditorium more bigger and the whole school grounds be fenced especially the Oakton Street side for the students protection.

Dawes is a neighborhood school with a great sense of community. The principal, teachers, and parents really work as a team. My two children feel like it's their home away from home.

Dawes School cultivates the whole child. There is a balanced focus on the emotional, social, and academic needs of each student. The school has a positive climate and promotes PBIS which encourages children to be caring, safe, prepared, and respectful. Students are engaged in fine arts and daily p.e. Technology is also a part of the every day learning. The school has a computer lab as well as lap top carts. The curriculum is effective & the PTA is involved. The facilities is well care for & the school backs up to a huge park which is really nice. There are two playgrounds where children can run and play. Most of all kids love coming to school.

I cannot possibly imagine the negative review of the Dawes principal came from anyone who has actually met this principal. Ms. B and I may have our differences, but I never once doubt she acts in what she feels is in the best interest of the individual child and the school community on the whole. We have been at Dawes for 5 years now, with 3 kids, 2 of whom need special ed. This is an incredibly supportive school with a wonderful staff. Jennifer Wilson

My son and daughter have had a great experience at Dawes. We have had great teachers and have met wonderful, caring families that attend our school. Our principal knows every single kid in the school and is very hands-on. She makes smart decisions and is very mindful of the diverse populations within our school. Many of my children's friends are first generation American and their families come from all over the world. We are so proud to be a part of the Dawes community.
