This is an amazing school. I loved the math program, and I'm so sad I had to go to high school, leaving this amazing place. The people here were so nice. I'm proud to say I haven't been bullied at all in the 4 years I've been here- and, to top it off, never had an argument with my friends. Everyone knew ...  Read more

Many student discipline problems and and misbehavior go unaddressed. The school culture is not the ...  Read more

Great School! One of the Best CPS Magnets. Kids are doing great on academics and they are very happy. That's what I care about.

in my view from the school being there for a while the school needs better leadership via new principal & can use some teachers that care about all the kids not just some same goes for the principal
