School review Columbia Explorers Elementary Academy (4520 South Kedzie Ave)
Columbia Explorers Elementary Academy (4520 South Kedzie Ave) Comment
Columbia Explorers Academy is one of the worst schools I have ever attended. The teachers themselves are bullies. The teachers bring down their own students and discourage them. When I got bullied at this school, the teachers and principle completely ignored it and only focused on what the bullies had say. The teachers, including the principle, are extremely bias and only treat their favorite students nice. My little brother - still attending this school- was injured a by another student in P.E. His P.E. teacher simply sent him to the office to get an ice pack. When my mother took my brother to the doctor, his finger was in a bad condition. My little has been getting bullied at this school as well. But what to the teachers do? NOTHING! They simply told him to ignore them. Then he started to get bullied physical. My mother went to the office MULTPLE times to complain about the teachers doing to stop her child from getting bullied. What did they do after that? Nothing, again. My brother started to defend himself, since the teachers didn't do anything to help him. But as a result my brother is the one getting in trouble for DEFENDING HIMSELF. This school may have a good level of education, but the teachers don't have the love to care for these kids. I learned that once a teacher has taught in a CPS school for 5 years, they are protect by the system and can't easily be fire. IN other words, it does not matter if the teachers do their jobs right, they still get paid either way. This school should not be qualified to teacher these kids. This school , alone with its teachers, are bring these kids down and shutting their dreams down. In this school, kids are taught that Christopher Columbus is a strong and important man that found America. However, this is false. Columbus MURDERED the Native Americans, which the first people to step foot on America and took over their land. I was able to escape this terrible school and graduated from a school full of loving teachers - UNO Brighton Park. I hope you, the parents of students at C.E.A, will know what is best for your children and choose the school best suited for them and their needs.

My family has been attending this school for the last 6 years. We just registered for the coming year because this school has everything we want and need for our children's education. The teachers are great and we feel at home here. I would recommend this school to any parent looking for a faith-base education.

worst school ever, if you have a kid with an IEP, you Must think twice. They just keep these kids out of the classroom for 7 hours. They are only in special class all day, have no contact with other children of their class, do not have homework, and my son complained that a teacher kicked him. When I complained to the principal, he said they would investigate, but they only told me that they came to the conclusion that my Son "just fell down". God!, as if a kindergarten autistic child could invent stories of that kind. Keep your child away from here!
