The school is 1 or 2 years behind other schools in the area. The Chicago public schools have achieved a better handle on teaching the children. It is a same The principal does not take teaching more seriously. She allows the teachers to sit back and watch bullying and when a child takes a stand they are punished. When a child says they are bad and no good and they are stupid, you wonder who is at fault. But when the child says that is how he or she feels because school, here you MUST look at the principal and teachers.. This school is poorly run. The administration needs to remove the principal and some of the teachers.
I am so happy to have my kids back in North School. I believe this school is a great school when it comes to teaching and respect. My kids transfered out 1 1/2 yrs ago because of a move but we are back in Franklin Park and now they are back in North. I am upset to find out that my 1st grader is not at the level she should be (thanks to her prior school) I know now they will be just fine when it comes to their education.
