Love Darwin everyone nice and very welcoming. Love how students are learning to be leaders. Best school my kids went to.Darwin school is the only Leader in Me School in CPS-District and having a Lighthouse status. The teachers and staff at Darwin go beyond what they have to do for the students and the parents here.

I think that when a large percentage of employees do not return to a working environment that it must be because it is a bad experience.

I have noticed recently that some of the negative reviews of the school are quickly taken down. I didn't find many of them very offensive that needed to be taken down. However, this site asks for honest opinions of schools, and yes, the truth hurts sometimes and isn't always positive. Previous posts that were taken down seem to specifically mention the principal... as do 99% of the posts.. which I find odd. The ones taken down however seem to all mention the principal being egocentric and overbearing. Having negative comments taken down would walk in step with those accusations. It seems to be that there must be people from the school monitoring the comments and only leaving positive ones. If this is where energy is being spent, what is there to hide instead of fixing the problems that people are complaining about? As a parent looking to find a school to send my child to next year, this is definitely a red flag for me.
