Our daughter loves kindergarten at Alcott, loves her teacher, and has learned an astounding amount this year. She is reading and writing. I also don't know what I would have done without the extensive after school care options and enrichment classes. While I finish up my day at work, she spends her time after school hours in reading classes, yoga, chess, robotics and performance.

My child has been at Alcott for 4 years and we are incredibly lucky to have found this amazing community! The school is one of only a handful of PK-12 CPS schools and has recently unveiled a 5-year strategic plan to ensure growth for all students and move the school from great to greatest. The new administration is truly terrific - the principal is professional, engaged, pragmatic, decisive, focused on data-driven instruction, and very open to parent involvement. We have a very active, welcoming community that encourages volunteerism and demonstrates to our students what can be done when an engaged parent base works closely with a focused administration to make a CPS school the best that it can be.

We have been at Alcott for 10 years...so far! It's the greatest. The teachers really care about the students, and the fact that the kids get art, music and drama as part of the curriculum is just wonderful.

My fifth grader started attending Alcott in Kindergarten and we have loved the school ever since. The staff, including the teachers and principle are outstanding. I couldn't find any school with a more committed team of educators. Our test scores have improved every year since we have been there, but more importantly, the children are learning how to become life-long learners. The parental involvement is phenomenal and together, every element is what makes this school first-rate.

Parents and community are extremely involved. They help raise school funds under a fabulous principal who is willing to work with the families and within the public school system to do what is best for the children.

Alcott has a wonderful parent base that is extremely active and involved. My child has attended Alcott for three years and has had a really great experience so far. The principal is active in all of the school activities and is responsive to parents even given the constraints of the Chicago Public Schools Board. We're really excited to have the Organic School Project retun this fall and truly appreciate the superior level arts and music programs that our children are priveleged to participate in.

I have been in Alcott for 9 years and I know this school like the back of my hand. I personally think Alcott is the best school in Chicago. My 7th grade math teacher is the best math teacher I've ever had. I've really learned a lot from her. I have excelled grealty at Alcott and i think it is a wonderful school. It's nice to see new kids come too.
