Beyond horrible. The school is able to run itself as a school for privileged families who have moved to this neighborhood. There is zero spirit of inclusivity. This is not what public education is about. This is what white privileged does to public education. The fear and ignorance locks out those who are vulnerable and most in need.

Our children have been at Prescott since Kindergarten and are now in 5th grade. They are happy at school, enjoying positive relationships with all teachers /staff /peers and academically thriving. We love the emphasis on literature and the arts whilst staying strong on math, science and social studies. Nice balance with PE also. We also love the cultural diversity amongst the school community. Parent involvement is a huge strength of Prescott also. Ideas are always welcome here, inclusion in certain classes, celebration of learning events, family reading /math nights and wonderful art exhibitions! We have appreciated feeling in partnership with Prescott for our kid's education. There is always an invitation to be a part of whatever solution is needed, where possible. The bottom line is that the CPS experience is what you make it. Prescott can't possibly meet every student /family need all of the time in the right moment, hence some scathing reviews. Some situations also need boundaries for liability reasons and perhaps a few parents have not aligned with administration which again causes bad reviews on websites like this. Come check out Prescott for yourselves. You will be warmly welcomed, inspired and curious to know more.

I’m thrilled that my children have the opportunity to experience diversity, academic rigor and compassion thru Prescott. We have had a wonderful experience.

Needs improvement. Principle is never available and only says hello to his type of people if you know what I mean.
