    This school is so diverse and it is a great influence on the children. The staff is always interacting with the students to make them feel right at home. This school is perfect! They have so many extra curricular activities for children to stay active by and have fun. The students' grades will improve so much when they transfer here because the teachers here are so influential.

    My children love school and it shows on their report cards and on their standardized test scores. They are greeted each morning by teachers and staff who know the kids by their first names. That's saying a lot considering there are more than 700 students at Rogers. I count Rogers School in my blessings everyday. Unfortunately high performing schools do not get the most attention (or funding) in the Chicago Public School system. Rogers School is in desperate need of more classroom space a gymnasium a proper cafeteria and a proper library.

    Too bad that for all the great academic ratings this school has terrible support staff. I say hire real cops for day security because there are no signs that tell non-white adults using the PUBLIC park next door can't cross the short lot to visit friends living on Sherwin Street. Oh but I forgot this *is* after all a PUBLIC school. Anything can happen espeically if the Chicagoan visiting the friend on Sherwin isn't white. Terrible!

    This school is absolutely fantastic and I love that the teachers interact with the students so well and know when a child is struggling or having a hard time and they try their best to help the child to become successful and the child shows a large improvement by the next quarter.

    Rogers School staff especially the Principal Ms. Jabbari and the Assistant Principal Mr. Schwarz are terrific! Not only do they know each student's first and last name they know their family members as well! I have 2 children whom attend Rogers since Pre-K (they are now in 2nd/5th) and with each year it only improves. This year Rogers has implemented Spanish class for all grades as well as Music(I wish that they had Art classes). Teachers are committed to their students' education and overall development. This is a terrific neighborhood school the parents PTA LSC and Friends of Rogers are all committed to this school- it's a great "...it takes a village..." environment!

    Rogers has a very dedicated administrative and teaching staff. The LSC and PTA are very active with great working relationships with the staff. Budget cuts have effected many extra programs but the PTA has stepped in to help fill in the gap with arts programming and field trip support. I love that such a great school is my neighborhood school. A diverse student body and support for teachers.

    I truly believe this school is advancing further most of the elementary schools in the Chicago area. We have just started going to this school for our child in Kindergarten and our daughter has a wonderful teacher Mrs. Erwin who has been very responsive to our child's needs. When we send her paper and email correspondence she has given terrific feedback and has gone above and beyond what expect from any teacher. It's been a good year for learning for our child and it joyful to see our child reading with pride and enjoyment. If you spend a little time on research the Rogers school report card the school has been upward trending with a score of 39 out of 42 points; it's a very high ranked school. This is a new scoring system presented by the Chicago Public Elementary School. Mr. Luke

    There is a wonderful ethnic diversity in the school's population reflecting the make-up of the surrounding neighborhood and more broadly the city of Chicago itself! Parents and faculty alike really care about the school's success. It is a unique environment where my granddaughter and her many friends from diverse backgrounds can share and grow! Roger's elementary is truly great place to learn not only academically but also socially and culturally!!

    I have a 4th grade student who gets Special Education services at Rogers. He has made strides this year do to the outstanding Special Education teacher -she has 3rd 4th 5th and 6th grade students who come into her room and she does an amazing job. My child feels cared for challenged and safe to be himself. I really appreciate all her hard work and would tell everyone who had a child with learning issues and/or behavior problems about this Special Education program.

    I wish the teachers were a little more dedicated to the children that really needed. My son needs a little more encouragement to want to go school and right now he is not really getting that. I can not say the same about the principal who is very dedicated and caring tource the students and is always willing to speak to the parents if there's any issues. I wish just that I had the opportunity to change my son to a different classroom and that was not allowed. Is being a difficult year for him with the same teacher for 2 yrs.

    My children have attended this school for almost 4 yrs. I could not be more satisfied w/ the staff and parental involvement.I would recommend this school to anyone.my children love it!

  • (6 years ago)

    My child has had a great experience until 4th grade. She actually had the same teacher for 2nd and 3rd grades and the teacher moved with the children. It was great! Now for some reason the teacher is absolutely inflexible teaches to the tests and has her favorites. It's horrible. My bright vivacious enthusiastic daughter now does not care for school at all. This teacher has been completely frustrating doesn't return phone calls and isn't open to figuring out how to help my daughter. She just moves forward without ensuring that all of her students are getting a broad experience that encourages learning. I am looking to move in order to get out of this school area.

    I have two children at Rogers one that transferred from a private school 3 years ago. We have found that most of the teachers at Rogers are wonderful. The administration and support staff are very responsive and caring. The curriculum and extra's are fantastic. I am a teacher myself (not at Rogers) and know how to evaluate a school. We couldn't be happier. I only wish that other Chicago Public Schools had the resources they have at Rogers.

  • (7 years ago)

    I think Rogers was a great school. All my children have wen't there and I have no complaints. The administration and teachers we're very helpful and I feel my children have learned a lot from there.

  • (7 years ago)

    The administration doesn't seem to care about the students anymore just their own politics! I feel that the principal listens to certain teachers instead of what's doing best for the students! be careful before sending your students here! mine are leaving!

    I have 2 kids going to this school and I am an unhappy parent. I have noticed this year the school administration does not support classroom teachers or parents. Watch out for this school. Its going downhill.

  • (7 years ago)

    My son has attended this school since the fourth grade (he'll be entering 7th in the fall) and we also sent my daughter to their half-day PreK program (she'll be attending Roger's K in the fall). Like all public schools you get out of it what you put into it. If you stay involved with your child's classroom/teacher your kid will learn a lot more than the kid who doesn't have anyone backing him. The teachers support staff and administration have a committed spirit and the PTA is very involved. Kudos to the administration for organizing ballroom dancing family reading events and picnics. I always enjoy participating in all of the 'extras' offered at Rogers. A great community!

    It's time for parent of rogers to stand behind their superior teachers and stand up to the administration that is failing its students.

  • (8 years ago)
