We switched from a Catholic school to Pulaski to 'try it out' since we had heard good things about it and it is actually our neighborhood school. One of the best decisions ever! I am a fairly involved parent and I love seeing how parent/teacher effort and participation really impacts the school and the larger community. Pulaski has started doing 'socials' for parents and the community members which is a great way to connect with other families. At an academic level, I can't thank enough the teachers for their dedication. My son at the end of first grade was reading at a level appropriate for a second grader ( end of school year). He also developed such a love for books that he knows the hours for the nearby public library by heart. Between discipline and academic excellence, I truly believe I have found the school that meets our educational needs. 5+ years ago the school was somewhat struggling but this has dramatically changed. There also have been numerous facilities and grounds improvements such as building out an outdoor classroom and a sensory garden.

I currently have first grader at Pulaski and could not be happier. We live just outside the neighborhood and wanted a great community school with a strong curriculum. Pulaski fit that bill. We are so fortunate to have gotten called off the waitlist. The IB program is fantastic. Such a grounded and well rounded curriculum and I hear my child speaking the IB language daily. She has learned so much. She has fantastic teachers. I am amazed with them daily and we are thrilled with Dr Bedard and the administration. She hit the ground running and has brought nothing but positive energy to the school every single day. I also enjoy being an involved parent with so many opportunities to help out. We look forward to many wonderful years ahead at Pulaski!

The school is academically great the only thing that does disappoint is the Administration staff they are VERY unhelpful and rude they could care less about You as a parent or about their students...

Pulaski school is simply the best. My son has been there 3 years now and I could not be happier and more convinced I made the right choice. The teachers are amazing at what they do, they are all experienced, innovative and ceative with their teaching methods at all levels and grades while also being very caring and supportive. The genuinely care about all the kids well being, academic advancement and are great role models. The parent involvement here amazes me. A great number of parents volunteer all of their free time to coordinate activities, clubs, bus and parent pick up and drop offs, child safety and more. Not to mention the great IB programs offered by Columbia College.

My husband and I have been pleased with our experience at Pulaski thus far. We have two kids who attend the school, and we plan to enroll our third in preschool for the next school year. We are finding that our kids are both challenged by and enjoying the IB education program at Pulaski. Everyone there (faculty and parents alike) work together to make Pulaski a better place for the children and community.

I have two sons at Pulaski. They are both extremely happy at school and love their teachers. The principal is so involved, caring and responsive. The school offers music, art, technology, library, Spanish and physical education. The school is not only focused on their minds, but their health. Talking to them about healthy eating habits and exercise. The kids love it and want to make great choices. We love walking our kids to school and have such a sense of pride and community in our neighborhood school.

We could not be more please with Pulaski International School of Chicago. Our son is a second grader and has attended the school since pre-school. He has had a caring and dedicated teacher every year who have each given him confidence and the desire to be the best student he can be. Not only does he love going to school, he is proud of his school. The teachers and administration are thoughtful, responsive and approachable. The parent involvement continues to grow and the community feeling at Pulaski is extremely positive. This is exactly what we hoped our neighborhood school would be.

The parents are really engaged in the school as well, which will only make the school continue to get better. Our son is going into 1st grade this year and had a wonderful kindergarten experience. He learned so much his first year there I was really amazed.

Pulaski International School is a good Ib school to go to for all students !! Pulaski School can be hard sometimes but if you try then you will be fine for everything students !! This school has rules you need to respect whick are Be Responsible,Be Respectful,Be Positive,Be Safe. In Pulaski School you learn alot of new things that you have never knew before !! This school has specific consequenses you need to do if you do not listen and respect all teachers from this school which are detention, righting a letter to the teacher,and to dtay inside for recess and help the teacher do things. If you dont wear the uniform you are not suppost to be wearing you will get sent to detention on a specific day and you have to wake up super early . Pulaski school teachers want all of their students to be on their best behavior and to get good grades to be on the honor roll and also no tardy slips and perfect attendence because you learn more when you are at school !! My name is Genesis and i am going to sixth grade.

We live in the neighborhood and are thrilled to send our daugher to our neighborhood school. The new principal, Dr. Bedard, is fantastic and has hit the ground running. The administration is very responsive. The teachers are so dedicated, really KNOW your children, and we are blown away with all that our daughter has learned in kindergarten. There are also many opportunites for parent involvement (lunchroom/recess, kiss'n go, office/library assistance, etc.). We couldn't be happier.

I have had my kids at Pulaski for four years and neither they nor any of their classmates have ever gone missing. However - in my career as an elementary teacher, I have made the awful mistake of leaving a kiddo behind. It happens, usually only once. The faculty and staff at Pulaski are outstanding and vigilant. A little perspective is a wonderful thing.
