This school has a lot of qualities, my two daughters are happy to be there. The teaches they have had are great. I like that they are teaching and learning more than one language is important.

My daughter attended Salazar for 2 yrs in the preK program. I can not speak more highly of the preK program as well as the school.

The academic program is average; the teachers are not prepared to handle special ed at all. If your child, like mine, has special needs, you are better off using your english-language skills to go to a real school in Chicago where you can get better help. This system cripples us by enabling spanish speakers ...  Read more

The academic program is good, but for me the most important is that my son likes to go there. The Pre-K is excellent, especially because of the teachers.

My two daughters attend Salazar. It is an excellent school with committed teachers and staff members. I have seen how the school has improved year after year and it seems to be getting better. Something I appreciate is the fact that it is a small school, thus, there's more attention given to each individual ...  Read more
