This school is fine as far as CPS goes. I did have a problem with the lack of real science. The "science" teacher deliberately skipped over the chapters that involved climate change and evolution. Neither of these subjects were even touched on in the two years my daughter had her class, which basically ...  Read more

Nettlehorst My grandson is in 1st grade. His teacher sends home e-mails with so many errors. one wonders about her competence. She wrote a title on his workbook: "Show in Tell".

I don't know who the greatschools troll is that posted the story about the principal, but i'm given to doubt it because (1 she doesn't yell at anyone, as is widely known, 2) i've never seen anyone in that office "yell" at anyone in alomst 10 years, and 3) the poster likely has an axe to grind, as there's ...  Read more

I've been a parent at Nettelhorst for 8 years, which is well before it was "fashionable" to go to Nettelhorst. Although I respect the views expressed, I do need to challenge the posts given what I know. 1. The Nettelhorst community is one community. This has been demonstrated many times by the fundraisers ...  Read more

Nettelhorst does not live up to the reviews of this school, they are manufactured by an overzealous parent's co-op's panderings last year to boost a higher rating. The school is disorganized, touts diversity yet is really about higher income bracket parents creating an elitist community where fund raising ...  Read more
