  • It is not hard to understand the school's rating of D-. I have only had my child in this school since January. Upon registering my child who attended a charter school in Chicago, I had to endure overhearing the (...) question another faculty member, "Oh, God, I hope there's nothing wrong with him". This is very unprofessional behavior to display in front of my son and myself! Sadly, this was only the start. The (...) displayed the same unprofessional ethic attitude when she failed to follow a personal agreement, one the two of us verbalized on. She detained my child, without permission for detention, when we both agreed upon a later date. Upon calling for my child; who I had been waiting 25mins for, I get (...) screaming at me stating, "You need to get your son, his nose is bleeding all over me". This tops the cake to questionable individuals overseeing "our children, our future!" Such an embarrassing experience for both my child and me!
