Open Quote I am a freshman at Lindblom Math and Science Academy. I attended Vanderpoel from kindergarten to 7th grade. This may sound crazy but it was time for me to go. When I first started at the school, I had passed the gifted test. However, Vanderpoel wasnt far from my house and it was a GREAT school. The principal was Dr. Stafold. We had very high test scores and multiple extracurricular programs. We even had a band/choir. Then our school hit a downfall. Test scores dropped, with an administration change. Students acted out of hand and many teachers that had worked at the school for a while, left. Vanderpoel hit another downfall with new teachers that didnt teach well, another administration change, and the pattern continues.In adjacent with the not so magnificent teachers and low test scores, students behavior was TERRIBLE! Students disrespected teachers, didnt do work, cheated on test and there were multiple cases of bullying and fights, not handled correctly. The new administration didnt know much about Chicago or Vanderpoel as they were from another State. While it would have been nice to graduation from a school that I could once call home, it was time for me to leave and do what was best for my education.

Good luck Vanderpoel. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
