This is still a CPS school and adheres to the same CPS bureaucratic agenda that is expected of all CPS schools. So, in that sense, it is not special. IN other words, same overtesting, common core, NWEA BS that has been proven to be useless for children. It is only helpful to the ones making those tests. ...  Read more

I have to strongly disagree with the 5/2/13 posting - this school is a real gem! The teachers and principal are committed to excellence in education as well as personal development of the children.

My first grader is in the classroom NEXT TO the boiler room (no class meets IN the boiler room), which was a music room for years.
