  • It's an open weed market right across the street from the military school?!😳Why it continues right in front of the police car parked on the corner is beyond me? That 2 block segment of 35th is an embarrassment. There is loitering there because of all of the loose cigs and weed that gets sold there. All just 2 blocks away from CPD HQ. Impressive!😒👎

    I used to think that you had to hide or be discreet, but this is right in front of Congressman Rush's home. literally 3 blocks from police headquarters, maybe I am naïve but it's as if they had a license to deal drugs.

  • Suder Montessori Elementary Magnet School reviewed by a parent

    My child has been at this school sine she was three and now she is in 4th grade. Even through the changing of three principals, my child changing teachers every year (which is VERY unusual for Montessori schools) I STILL say that this school has been EXCELLENT for my daughter and I cannot imagine taking her anywhere else. Like every school, I as the parent have had to be very involved in the day to day and will continue to be until I feel that it is time to move on. This year marks our first 8th grade graduation since we became a magnet school. Everyone who are "worried" about our school slipping from tier 1 to tier 2 seem to forget that CPS warned that our scores would decline this year due to the shift to Common Core. Our scores will rise again and we will be back to stronger than ever if we keep working. That is why I stay in the PTA and stay informed through the LSC. Suder will be stronger than never.
