Open Quote This is a school that has an awesome fine arts component along with a strong curriculum. It is also one of the most diversified school in the CPS system Close Quote


by a parent
Sunday, January 6, 2013

Open Quote Most of the teachers are wonderful. The parent groups are very active and extremely supportive of the school. The administration holds all of this back. Nothing can get done because the principal lacks vision, leadership, focus and the basic skills necessary to lead this promising school. This school has potential to become a very good fine arts school, but it would take dedication, vision and discipline and the administration lacks it, therefore cannot enforce it of it's own students.

Poor decisions are made to frequently. The principal attempts to hide this by alienating people and quite recently drove away one teacher, a good teacher.

At times there are fowl smells inside the hallways as if the garbage was left in a room overnight and the school itself is not being maintained properly with the exception of daily duties and parent donated labor including fundraisers.

I think if there was a turnover in leadership, there would be chance for Pritzker to emerge and become a success story, but absent the replacement of the administration, there is no chance for growth here. I think the poor marks based on rankings are pretty sad considering this school houses a gifted program.

I took my son to see another school and when we walked in and he saw the banisters he was excited because he didn't see any spit rolling down them. I suppose that is an issue, although I have never observed it myself but find it repulsive that this would excite my child. 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.
