his Elementary School is terrible they called CPS couple of times just to get rid of my kids by making up stuff up cause they don't know how to handle kids that have disabilities and they don't even know what seizures are they treated my child like my kid was like in a P.O.W Camp and they got away with it and my kid has not even been the same since then and also they made fun of my kids disabilities and also they don't know nothing about food tolerances and they got a lack of knowledge they need the right teachers with the right education and there is so much going on up there what this school needs is a new Era that cares about there job and the kids they teach and they need to have people up there that knows what they are doing.

This school is a big disappointment for us. We'd heard good things, and were excited when we moved here that our boys would get a good education. Through 2 years of struggling with the teachers & principal, we've noticed a drastic change in both of our children's personalities. They've been fed nothing but negative feedback from their teachers, and have poor self esteem now when it comes to education - and they are only in 2nd & 4th grades! Especially the youngest! When we had a solution working (daily notes on behavior and homework) his grades greatly improved, as did his self esteem; but the teacher didn't acknowledge the achievements, and stopped the notes. Now his grades are dropping again. The best thing this school could to to improve is to loose the negativity - even if it means to replace the majority of the staff including the principal. Elementary school should not be like a boot camp with teachers yelling at the kids, yet the more we experience this school the more like a boot camp it seems. There is just too much negativity there, which is a good way to teach kids the "don't wanna" attitude. Unfortunately, limited options make it hard to find a positive solution.
