  • Amundsen High School reviewed by a parent

    Wow, I went to the recent open house and the new principal is a total rock star. I know so many parents that are worried sick about their kids getting into a selective enrollment school, but after meeting teachers and students here at Amundsen, we are going to give this school a long hard look. If you haven't been to this school and taken the tour, you owe it to yourself to put it on the list, as more and more neighborhood families are enrolling their kids here. Test scores continue to rise and we are lucky that this our local neighborhood option. Your kids don't need to be perfect to attend here, but for so many of us that are seeking a great local option this is a perfect fit.

  • Amundsen High School reviewed

    We have a middle schooler who's in the process of learning about high school options. Amundsen is our neighborhood school and we've been hearing good things about the principal and the school, so we wanted to see for ourselves what Amundsen has to offer. We went to last weekend's open house, and were impressed with the IB program, the athletic offerings, so many student activities and the overall feel of the school community. Even my extremely skeptical middle schooler was impressed ... so much so that Amundsen shot to the top of her list, tied with her top selective enrollment choice. I would be happy to have my kids attend Amundsen, right here in our neighborhood.

Recycling

I live near Winnemac Park in a building of about 25 apartments and there is no recycling for the building. Does anyone know of any place I could contact to find out what is available in the area? I have seen the blue containers behind single homes in the area. The landlord of our property does not return calls or have any info about the options and does not seem willing to help.
Thanks!!

    Almost success story! After over a year of notices to my apartment management company and an official complaint to the city attempted through 311. I emailed info@james46.org for help or advise on what to do from here asking what I could do and if they could do anything to push the building into compliance?

    I got a response with 24 hours from someone at Cappleman's office, they contacted my building owner. Said to follow up in a week to let them know if a bin is there and if not, they will have Streets and Sanitation Superintendent for the 46th Ward go out and assess the situation and talk with the owner and the building supervisor about potential fines and action if they are not in compliance.

    Looks like I may be getting recycling, FINALLY.

  • Way to go Renee!
