  • Ebinger Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Maybe I was spoiled but growing up in the outlying suburbs and having access to Gifted programs, arts programs, lower student to teacher ratios, etc but I think this school is mediocre at best. I think it's unfortunate that this is the "best" school in CPS. There is absolutely no sense of community, because if you are a working parent in this school, you are pretty much ostracized. The principal's lack of communication about important matters but hearing every other week about how they are trying to find a budget is disturbing. My child actually regressed while in their kindergarten program and unfortunately, due to the 31:1 ratio in the classroom, a lot of things go on that you only hear about from your child -things that should not happen. I am stuck between a rock and a hard place because catholic school is too expensive (not to mention I am not religious but would be willing to send her anyway) and this is supposedly the best school in CPS. Furthermore, the lack of diversity is ASTOUNDING. How can we teach our children to respect other cultures when everyone is rich and white?

Crime and other reports...

Last week there was a small article that got my attention. It was an item that stated a man was shot in the hand in Edison Park, yet no report of this incident happening on Every Block. I wondered why. Did this happen during or after the Edison Fest? In all honesty, I do not go to the Edison Fest because for some time now it just draws some bad influences into our neighborhood. Don't get me wrong, it may draw in a lot of revenue, however.....
Can someone or anyone tell me anything further?

    I believe I read in the Sun-Times that the man went to the hospital around 3:30am. My husband and I don't go to the Fest anymore because it's just one big "Come and Drink and Drink Some More" party. There used to be vendors selling cute things, and those are...

    I believe I read in the Sun-Times that the man went to the hospital around 3:30am. My husband and I don't go to the Fest anymore because it's just one big "Come and Drink and Drink Some More" party. There used to be vendors selling cute things, and those are no longer (at least as far as I know.) In 2015, my husband had to break up a violent fist fight two girls were having in front of our house. Another year, a twenty-something year old man backed into me, and started screaming at me like it was my fault. His friend calmed him down. The Fest, in some ways, is an annual headache. I don't mean to be so terribly negative; I realize most people are very polite and are simply there to have innocent fun, and that part is great.

Flying over every minute! What the hell is going on? Why the hell are my taxes going up?! Where are my new windows at, what has this neighborhood received in return for this inconvenience, empty storefronts on touhy, what really has this alderman done?

  • I'm not sure what happened but last night from about 7pm-930 it sounded like Beirut. I thought we were supposed to get soundproofing? I stand buy my comments about touhy ave and the alderman, I can only hope that he and the chamber can work together and bring some businesses to some of the vacant storefronts. It looks like $hit.

    Who else can we blame but whoever is currently at the top of the political food chain. As for why I left the city; financial reasons. I had great neighbors. Then I had an awaking. My self funded retirement was going to fund a corrupt system.(5K+ in property taxes). The funny thing is a few of my fellow citizens who escaped from Chicago are snobs. (I have 4 former CPS teachers in the next block. They are very voicetress in their opinion. If you came from Chicago, don't forget to leave. Most of us escapees get along very well and feel the same way. Enjoy everything Princeton and Bureau County has to offer, spend your money here and don't forget to leave. Good luck to you all. I wish everyone a prosperous retirement when the time comes.

  • Ebinger Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    We had such a terrible experience sending our son to this school for kindergarten! There wasn't any support with his homeroom teacher with his special needs. His IEP team changed his minutes and goals to basically set him up for failure. It is severely overcrowded. And they do not have a strong special dept. for kids who are struggling. Which I was also very surprised and sad that they don't have a cluster program especially since their principal is a mother of twin boys, one being autistic and the other being typical. You would think she would be more sympathetic with children having special needs. But obliviously, she doesn't care about the children at her school. The principal is more concern about her data goals and whenever Rahm Emanuel, Mayor decides to visit their school. With all of this being said, we have decided one year at Ebinger was enough for us to transfer our son to a different school for the Fall.
