This school isn't what it use to be, the new principal has lied and the kids are not in her best interest. The staff is very verbally emotionally mentally spiritually abusive to the kids, they curse at the kids, they have with held school work, the proper academics aren't being taught at this school, SOME of these teachers are there for the 8 and hit the gate. Please do not enroll your children here, when confronted they all lie on the children because instead of being adults, role models they belittle the kids and bring personal feelings into matters, its extremely hideous what has become of the school because of the new principal!!!
If you have options let this school not be one. All teachers are great but the administration is horrible. Teachers are forced to do things that are unnecessary and in turn not helpful for the overall school or students in the long run. Many kids at the school are disrespectful to the adults that work there and the administration does not have effective consequences for students like them. Bad kids are kept in the classroom which in turn take education away from those students who are there to learn and become college and career ready. I have heard kids talk back to many teachers and even the principal and assistant principal as well. Do not send your child here unless you plan to hear things like these going on in school. There are too many fights amongst students, no respect, limited supplies, no support, bullying etc.
This school is fantastic it has a lot of programs that keep us out of trouble. I've been their all my life and haven't had a problem right now is my 8th grade year and i'm looking to graduate.
Harold Washington is a very good learning base school that has a lot of good teachers that care that the children learns. The teachers take pride in there students and goes the extra mile to make sure the children understands the subject. The school has a lot of history in building alone. I have two daughters who attends this school. They have not been so excited to attend school everyday. I see my children learning everyday, they come home everyday telling me the new things they have learned. It is a joy to see the children learning at Harold Washington Elementary.
