Great school that helps their students a lot! So many programs that will definently help a lot of the studens succeed in life! Has so much support for students who need help as well!
Many of the students at Mather are immigrants to America or the sons and daughters of immigrants to America, the school offers a wide range of classes from ESL 1 to 4 to bring the English skills these kids need. Mather also offers many honors and AP classes in every core subject as well as several years of Drama, Visual Art, dance, and Music. It has one of the best student freshman -senior year improvements in all of CPS and an average ACT score of 18 higher than most CPS schools but a little below the state average.
I was about to transfer my daughter to another school but they dont want to give me a release form.. i dont know why and whats their reason.... is it because or maybe their they will get a bad record... but then i want the safety of my daughter... i dont want her getting scared of going to school and i dont want that one day she's going to tell me .. mom dont want to go to school no more its a scary place!!!! So whats going to happen to her future if thats going to happen, if she got traumatized of whatever is happening in the school... the last time they did a random check on students and what did they got from those students knife, drugs.... like everyday there is fight... what if they hit a passing by student and something happen to that student... are the staff going to be responsibe ...are those staff in the school be the one taking care of the md appt and everything.... ofcourse they they will be covering their butts.... they will find ways not to be blame.... my daughter is smart she have all her class in honors.... but then i dont want her to get low grades and affect her studies because of this school..... just release her!!!
My Daughter attended Mather Highschool and has a really high GPA. She Graduated and loved all her friends there. Classes are great with Honors and AP courses. Sports should be improving alot more. The Principle has made alot of changes!
