School review Francis W Parker School (330 West Webster Avenue)

Francis W Parker School (330 West Webster Avenue) Comment
The high school experience at FWP needs an overhaul. With some recent upgrades in the math and science faculty academics are less of an issue (although if you have an exceptional math or science student this still isnt the best option for you). Culture is the main problem. First there s clear favoritism towards certain students (offspring of board members, mostly). Second the unrelenting emphasis on diversity turns off the very kids who could benefit most from exposure to other cultures. But the focus seems to make certain teachers and administrators feel better about themselves. Finally, the high school looks the other way on the question of extra time. Whereas nationally students with learning disabilities that require extra time on tests and the ACT are 2% of the population, at FWP it s closer to 40%. Parents can easily buy a diagnosis of a learning disability and the school readily accepts it. It s cheating, pure and simple. Everyone knows it. Disadvantages the kids who play by the rules who look on in disgust as that group gets as much time as they want (sometimes over several days) and post scores that are abnormally high. FWP does not reveal which kids have extra time on college applications. But conversations suggest that many college admissions office suspect that the system is being abused and assume that ALL FWP students have extra time. That seriously disadvantages the honest kids and there s not a thing that they can do about it (other than change schools but by then it s too late). So if you send your child to high school at FWP you d better decide early whether you re going to encourage cheating ( because everyone else does it ) or whether your values are more important than an inflated ACT score. The topic is absolutely taboo at the HS because the teachers, board members, and administrators with kids enrolled there often engage in the dishonest behavior themselves. And just because the colleges don t push the issue (frightened by the prospect of litigation I m sure) doesn t make it right. FWP sends all the wrong signals to these kids, all the while sanctimoniously bragging about their commitment to diversity and their anti-AP test mentality. I m a Parker parent and my kids go to prestigious colleges, so it s not sour grapes on my part. I just think it s important for other parents to understand the culture there.

In recent years, the openings have only come faster. If I had to pick a favorite of the bunch, I'd go with the wildly crunchy wings at Cupbop + Ramen (2439 N. Clark St.). The half chicken ($10) features genuinely juicy meat, while honey garlic sauce is nicely balanced.

There was some minor physical damage. We have the perp on video, but police cannot make any identification as person was wearing black hoodie and gloves.... left no fingerprints.
We believe person or persons are working the Lincoln Park Neighborhood.
