    In 2009-2010 Friendship hired a new administrative team. Since August of 2009 the school has been truly outstanding. I have 4 children in grades k 3 6 and 8. The school truly challenges my students academically and offers a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. School enrollment has increased by 15% over the last year. I would recommend Friendship PCS- Chamberlain Campus to any parent who wants an outstanding education for their child.

    The school is a war zone. There are frequent fights and the overall school enviroment is unsafe. I feared for my child's safety. The behavior of the studnets and lack of discipline are not conducive for a learning enviroment.

    The level of discipline at the Chamberlain Campus has declined drastically. Some of the newer teachers walk around like zombies totally oblivious of their surroundings and the unruly behaviour of the children. While other teachers who are trying very hard to instill standards of behavior while try to educate their students are becoming very discouraged and depressed by the lack of support in those efforts. Some of the administrative staff are very uncooperative and rude.

    I am a parent of a 4 yr old who attends this school. The curriculum is excellent and he is doing very well but I definitely agree with the other parent regarding the other kids behavior. They need discipline.

    I love FPCS. I am a student currently attened Woodridge campus. I have been at this school for nine years and now about to leave for high school. This schol have an excellent curriculum and outstanding teachers . Htey have a strict policy which is what young children need. I would highly recomend a parent who is looking for some where for their child to go in grades pre-k -8 to come here.

    Chamberlain's curriculum is fantastic and so are most of its teachers but that does not remove the fact that it is very lacking in regard to challenging the children to have self-discipline.

    I am a parent of a student at the Chamberlain Campus and thus far I have not been satisfied with the results I am getting from the school. Discipline is a huge problem in that school and some of the students are completely out of control for lack there of. If you are seeking more the Chamberlain Campus is not where you want to send your child.

    Friendship's Chamberlain Campus definitely needs to raise the bar for student performance and educational opportunities; a lot of learning resources are not in place as of today. The staff does not exhibit a high degree of professionalism for which the student can model in the classroom. If you are a parent seeking a safer place which will allow your child to grow academically. I advise you to find another school!

    3C's - Comittment Curriculum Concern FEPCS is raising the bar for student performance and educational opportunities. The leadership and staff exhibit a very high degree of professionalism which transfers into the classroom to model for the students. To parents who are just seeking a safer place to allow thier child to remain unchallenged and unchanged...FEPCS is not the place.

    I love the FEPCS curriculm. I have three children the Woodridge Campus. Prior to that they were enrolled in the Chamberlain Campus which I loved also. Both schools were very responsive to any concerns I had with my children's academic progress. We worked together well and made sure everyone stayed on task. I especially want to give 'hats off to the following staff members inside the FEPCS system -- Mr. Shadwick Jenkins Angela Breaker Ms. Diane Jordan Mr. Howard (music - Woodridge) Mr. Lyle Brown Mr. H. Simms Ms. Esposito and more. Those teachers have worked closely with my and my children to make the years successful. Nothing taken away from the principal she's new to te school and I have not had to opportunity to speak with her on a one-on-one level. El'Lana Steele-Staton

    I must say that the curriculun is is excellent. I have a problem with them not allowing the student to be children. There is no recess so my child is always in trouble for burning off energy. My child is in the 1st grade at Chamberlain and they eat lunch at 10 20 am. No recess to follow which means the children have lots of energy they can't burn off. I think they need to allow 5 and 6 year olds to act thier age. I am an advocate for children and educating them but I'm a firm believer that children will be children. Let the baby's play a little bit Mr. Shepard!

    I am a student currently attending the Collegiate Academy campus(2006). This school is one of the worst schools' I have attended. When I first came to this school in the 9th I liked it. Then the next year the uniform policy got stricter and they started suspending kids for mediocre things like having different color earrings. If you like having people yell at your children for not taking their coats off before going upstairs to their lockers or yelling at them because their shirt is not tucked in then this is the school for you.

    I chose Edison because the curriclum is great. The only problem is that if your child didn't start there in kinderagrten or the first grade they may have a hard time adjusting. Edison is very fast paced. If your child falls behind in a subject you'll have a hard time getting the appropriate help to get him/her back up to speed. They need a tutorial program for kids that are new to the school and are having a hard time adjusting to the curriculum. Especially for those students that may have come from a public schoool system where the curriculum isn't as advanced and faced paced.

    This past school year was my daughters first at Edison. It was fast paced and challenging with no time for games that's what she needed. She is proficient or advanced in all subjects. She also won an all around academics trophy this year. She's going to the fourth grade with straight A's. This school is a competitor.

    I chose this school because of the Edison Curriculum. This excellent curriculum is accented by the excellence of the teachers and administrators. Not only is my son learning acedemically but he is also advancing socially. People can't believe that a 6 1/2 year old first grader can read as proficiently as he does. The past 2 two years have been wonderful and I look forward to the next 4.

    I love this school! I have two children enrolled (ages 8 and 6 respectively) -- I am very pleased with the direction of the principal teachers and the administrative staff. My son (grade 1) has excel to the the point that strangers are amazed by his vast knowledge and love for learning. My daughter (grade 2)is excited and on fire about attending school every day. Both of them have excel thus far and have a love for learning that could not have been possible without receiving a wonderful start from EFPCS (Chamberlain campus). Keep challenging young minds....

    I absolutely love this school and would recommend this school to any parent. The instruction here was outstanding!! My son (age 5) has a learning curve that exceeds his grade level and it continues to grow as he goes higher in his education...I can't say it enough I abosolutely love this school!
