  • CICS Washington Park reviewed by a teacher

    The best things about CICS Washington Park are the passionate, dedicated teachers and the college-going culture. The school has gone through a lot of change in the past two years, which is always difficult, but I truly believe the school has come out stronger. I can't get over how committed the teachers I work with are. Students are learning more and more (check out our improved CPS ratings!), and I'm so excited to make this year even better.

  • Carter Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    I was very worried when I checked the reviews of this school last year when my students first enrolled. I am glad to say that I am pleasantly surprised and grateful for the great group of teachers/staff that my babies have encountered since becoming students. This school became a turn around school last year and replaced the entire staff. They recruited highly rated teachers from private schools that really push the kids and my children really thrive here. I wish there was more parent involvement as my husband and I and maybe 2-3 other parents were usually the only ones that attended honor roll assemblies/programs at the school. I wouldn't be surprised if this school's ratings jump from a 1 to at least an 8 on great schools. I wish that the older kids weren't so unruly after school but the staff does an outstanding job of controlling them and the parents. Some of them are more disrespectful and rude than the kids...
