“This school has most definitely improved in the past few years all thanks to a dedicated principal, wonderful staff and a community dedicated to change. If their dedication continues this school is on track to becoming one of the best in Chicago’s southwest side.”

“Education is what made the difference in my life and my mom’s life as well. If we didn’t have it, who’s to say where we would be or what we would be doing. I want the same educational experience for our students. Education will make a difference in their lives. I want them to recognize that and value their education. Education will change their future.”
