14 Parent Reviews for Volta Elementary School

Volta is a gem of a neighborhood school. It has professional, dedicated teachers, high quality academic programs, and supportive parents that have led it to be recognized as a Level One school in the city. The children of Albany Park are lucky to have a school of this caliber available to them.

This school is a decent school. My son has only been in this school for a year but i've seen the progress he has made and it's very much thanks to Mrs. Warren, She's an awesome teacher and makes sure all her students are getting the education they need. My son is in the low spectrum and she made sure ...  Read more

I am a former student who transferred to Edison and I think that Volta was terrible back when they had a gifted program. They fired my kindergarten teacher because they needed more Hispanic teachers. I think that Mr Johnson spends way too much effort on trying to make kids who aren't bilingual focus ...  Read more

As a community member, I have seen the consistent decline of this school since the current principal has taken over. Truly too bad!

Volta has great teachers and it is a very good school. Now for all the haters out there, why dont u try actually going to Volta and checking it out. For all i know, you guys dont know anything about this school and it may be one of the best Elementary schools out there.

Having had my children at Volta for 10 years now, I can honestly say that the school is having problems. It is suffering the budget crunch as are many. There is also a new administration that doesn't seem to have the best interests of the students in mind and a completely ineffective LSC. I feel that ...  Read more

Volta is a school that celebrates multiculturalism and is represented by over 20 different nationalities. This is a rarity in CPS. There is a comprehensive gifted program, a plethora of after school opportunities, and the students even learn Arabic! All in all, a great school.

Volta is an ok school. The thing I like about it is the students get to express themselves. Something I don't like about it is the PE over there. It is only one day of the week and 45 minutes. That is definitally not enough time to get the exercise kids need to stay healthy. They have a new playground, ...  Read more
