26 Parent Reviews for Edgebrook Elementary School

We moved to the neighborhood after hearing great things about Edgebrook School. I have to say that we are quite disappointed. It appears that most of the teaching happens at home and is re-enforced at school which appears to be backwards. Also, homework goes unchecked for several weeks and we question ...  Read more

I absolutely loathe this school's middle school! It is graded on something called the effort system, where you are graded on how hard you try. This is specifically for homework only. So you can get 100% even if you get all the answers wrong but as long as you did your homework, you get a good grade.

Alot public schools in Chicago. Hard to find one less crowded than Edgebrook. Should complain to CPS about the increasingly crowded situation, an issue beyond the administration of school principal or teachers. Each state has a standard test to evaluate whether or not a student has met some minimum ...  Read more

I agree at most of positive reviews. you can not find a better non-selective elementary public school in Chicago than this one. The school's performance is at the similar level as those highly selective schools'. the school chess teams won again in 2009 CPS city championships (www.cpschess.com). Some ...  Read more

Wonderful school! Excellent curriculum. Teachers go above and beyond for the students. Administration is professional yet approachable. The parental and student communities are very close and supportive. Yes, overcrowding is a issue. The school is so good that people keep moving to Edgebrook for ...  Read more
