My step-son has been going to this school for 2 years now. When he was in kindergarten, he had an excellent teacher and bus service. During that first school year, we had an excellent experience. Unfortunately, now that he is in first grade, things have gone far down hill. He is no longer eligible for bus service (even though he meets the criteria) and my husband and I have multiple problems with his teacher. She has been rude to our child and ourselves, and has also been yelling at him for turning in his late homework. We have asked the principle if he can switch classes and after a month, still no word about it. We are very unhappy with this school right now.

My children has attended AJK for 2 years now. AJK have teachers at the school that does not care anything about the students. I am a parent who is very involved with my children. The teachers are not informative when your child is not doing well. They say they are trying to teach the child responsibility but what they are doing is bringing the child self-esteem down. The teachers I have dealt with as well as the principal gets very upset when you inquire about your child. Their needs to be a clean-up in North Chicago school systems, starting with the Board of Education and moving to the principals.
