My child had a negative experience there that hurt his confidence and his love of learning. He started in 1th and I had to pull him out at the end of 7 th. yes! Very late and he was upset. There are so many kids like any other CPS school but teachers are pushed to do miracles they do what they can. And ...  Read more

Love ...love ...love Walt Disney Magnet School!!! The teachers challenge the students in a fun way... My daughter absolutely loves waking up every morning and going to school. The principal is strict but, hey that's what the kids need and it works! GREAT JOB to the staff and Dr. Hagstrom.

My daughter has had great teachers and learned so much in her two years at Disney. I definitely feel she is getting a good education along with some great extras-science arts this year is a fantastic addition. She enjoys coming to school every day. We love the diversity too. This school represents the ...  Read more

My son was challenged in Kindergarten. Differentiated reading groups helped him read. Our son's teacher was excellent in making sure he was challenged and even went beyond the scheduled coursework to make sure the class was ahead. They do MAPS testing to find out the individual students strengths and ...  Read more

I was initially very excited about Disney. There are indeed some good teachers. However, I have found the school to be diifficult, offensive and poor in terms of dealing with my son who has a physical ailment. I was terribly disappointed in the treatment given to him, as well as towards me. I have ...  Read more

My son started with the school this year (in Kindergarten) and we are very pleased so far. His teacher is great and the principal is an amazing leader (I haven't seen any unfriendliness but she does come across as no-nonsense, which I think is an asset in a school this size). We have felt very welcome ...  Read more
