I just wanted to speak on a response to the parent who stated "If you put 10 people in the room, everyone will have their opinion...either the student matches up or they don't." There seems to be a common issue with this school based on all the reviews I've read. Yes the teachers are great. Yes the school has more to offer students than other CPS schools. However if there is one student that doesn't feel like they are being treated the same way, based on the fact they are not rich or white that is one too many! That's not a problem of the kid, thats a problem of the school, and that statement that was made is unfortunately another way to ignore the problem.

The education is good, and probably along the top for chicago elementary schools, however maybe it's more of a community problem that not all children are treated fairly and feel included. Not all privileges are alotted fairly. There is no diversity among staff or students.

Average city school. And it is FILTHY! For all the money they raised to pay for furnishing the annex and all the extra staff to try and cover the 37+ kids in K and 1st grade classes, they could at least do a better job keeping the place clean. Also, the annex they are building will do NOTHING to ease the large class sizes as there are NO NEW CLASSES being added. It's unfortunate and concerning especially with all the new families moving into the neighborhood.

Awful, I would recommend that you choose a more diverse and open school that isn't so stuck up and toxic. If you have money or political pull then your child will get whatever they want but others will fall into the cracks. The principal only cares for those parents who get help her/get her what she needs and the others don't matter.

Both my husband and I attended public schools and got a great education in them. Second, my kids spent years at Ebinger. left this past year. Ebinger had overcrowding. It does make a difference on the play ground. Ebinger employed an afterschool/recess group with people that were not very educated to work with children. With the amount of children attending the school it made keeping an eye on them more difficult. Hence, more opportunities for bullying. Despite the, "Olweus," Program, bullying happens anywhere. For the program to work bullies need to be observed. Being overcrowded with not enough supervision can make this impossible.The teachers. Good teachers and not so good teachers. This is anywhere.English Literature. Ebinger has the children writing essays and papers. However, there is no really good solid foundation for grammar skills. Example: diagramming sentences. Children should really have a good grasp on nouns, predicates, compound sentences and work at that from an early grade on. At Ebinger, despite the boasting of being an IB school, the kids that transfer from there and other Chicago Public Schools including Ebinger to our school are behind in grammar. The children wind up needing tutoring for grammar facts. At our new school the children are working on nouns, verbs, etc starting in first grade. New school has an Advanced Learners Program starting in 1st grade.New school has co taught classrooms This ensures kids can work ahead or if behind in class, get the extra help.Spanish. Children coming from Ebinger to the school we transferred to are behind in Spanish. One of my children was being given straight A's in Spanish at Ebinger. We transferred over to the new school. My child cannot catch up. Neither can other children that have transferred over. Math is made for the kids to understand. Ebinger like many schools used common core math. New York trip in 6th grade. With many fine museums here in Chicago, a $1000.00 trip for a 6th grader is excessive. Clicky school parents. That too can happen anywhere. We found it a lot at Ebinger.Not as many afterschool activities at Ebinger as in the new school.The principal at Ebinger is a good person. She is directing traffic because a lot of staff did not want to do so. It was due to mistreatment by drivers at pick up/ drop off.Safe neighborhood.
