Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

My son and daughter both went to this school . My daughter Cami went to pre-k ( both mrs redclay and miss naynay were awesome teachers) and the first half of kinder. My son did 2nd grade and half of third. his firs tteaher was awesome and 1/4 ways in his teacher left and a young teacher who made empty promises came in . his third grade teacher was a new teacher again and half way through he was switched classes and a coupl months later a substitute came in again for the rest of the time. I took my kids out of this school distict and they were so behind because of this school . my sons bew school was a grade ahead in math and the voabualry and english classes were way more advanced than Bluewell. The principal here is also a bad one. She has to be a first year principal. She had it in for my son. When my son told a bad word to his sister at home and his sister repeated it to her teacher , the teacher and principal both reported us to CPS. For bad language. nothing more. When I confronted the principal ( Mrs Grosse ) she barely admitted a thing to me . When i pointed out she had it out for my son and threatened to sue and press charges, then she apologized. I cannot recommend this school to anyone that actually cares abou their kids education. The teachers do care and do try with the resources they have. I personally liked all my kids teachers but as long as they are being led by Mrs. Grosse this school will never get better.

I moved my child here from another school and was surprised at how different one school could be from another one in the same school system. The 1st grade class was small and their teacher (Mrs. Clark)was very attentive. She leads a structured classroom and expects her children to work to their best ability. My child loved her and I found her very easy to work with. I hope that my child will continue to excel through the years. I do feel however that the extracurricular teachers could improve in their attitudes and bring something new to the classes. This school has received a lot of new students this year from one of the other schools closing down. Hopefully this will not interfere with the teachers' ability to teach effectively or with the safety and security of this school now that the classroom sizes are larger.
