Open Quote THIS SCHOOL ALLOWS BULLYING. My daughter has been getting bullied. I’ve been up to the school, had a meeting with one parent, but the other child and her parent decided not to show up, and that is the girl STILL BULLYING MY CHILD. The teacher told my daughter to “handle it the right way”. My instructions to my daughter was to NOT interact with that girl, yet I have a teacher telling my daughter to “handle” it. If you try to take up for yourself, you get put in in-school detention. My daughter is currently a straight “A” student, but I am watching her self esteem slowly go away. I can’t wait to get my daughter out of this school at the end of the year.

There are fights at this school 5 days a week, kids getting “jumped” every other day. It’s like a war zone there. The PTSD these kids must have once they graduate...smh. I don’t understand how kids can learn in an environment like this. And this was supposed to be one of the better schools in the south suburbs. I’m a Registered Nurse and am working to get OUT of this school district. I don’t have time for the ghetto-ness of this place! WHATEVER YOU DO, DON’T MOVE INTO THE RICH SCHOOL DISTRICT!

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.
