Out of all the schools in district 127.5 Finley is the worst. I agree with the parent that they call you for the most simplest thing while your at work. I feel like the superintendent wants nothing but the best for the children and has compassion. However his agenda is not passed down to the principal and the associate principal. They are very bias and pick n choose how to discipline a child. The kids are unattended a lot, in restrooms having inappropriate conversation and ditching class. When you bring things to their attention they switch things around and one of the teachers lied on my son and the principal took up for her stating maybe she used the wrong language. They are very unorganized and don't have nothing set up to help kids that are experiencing social problems. All they do is have them talk to a social worker who I feel is there just to question the child about their family business. I can't wait to move and remove my son from this school district. Pay attention if your child attends that school and be proactive with their teachers. Oh for the most part the 6 grade teacher I have came in contact with have compassion and work with the parent and child and you bring academic issues to them.

They seem to call parents at work for the stupidest reasons. The principal were super high boots that are not appropriate. The vice principal is yelling at kids to stay off there phones but is constantly texting or taking calls at important concerts. The school seems to protect the Arab population despite the major racial issues, they don’t get in trouble or phone calls to parents. The social worker is a joke. Thinks every girl is depressed or cutting themselves. Call the nurse in and check facts out before claiming they need to go a hospital. Got rid of the federal program GAT- that can help pay for higher education like high school and college because it offends “other” students
