Someone has mentioned before that if you're white and moving from another school district your child immediately will be deemed inferior. Well, it was not a case for my kid, and we moved in the middle of the year from another state. He has ADHD and even before official diagnosis from the doctor we've got full support from the class teacher and school administration - with them suggesting perfectly appropriate accommodations and doing their best to leverage his natural interests to engage in some less preferred classwork. Regardless of some bad days (as any ADHD kid would have from time to time) he LOVES going to school and talks enthusiastically about almost all the teachers he had so far (it's his second year in this school).

The school might be a Blue Ribbon school but that is no thanks to the teachers/administration!!! I've had my daughter in the school for the past two years and the teachers and the administration are very unresponsive. They tend to believe they "know best" and refuse to listen to the concerns/suggestions of the parents. I've never seen a more egotistical/unfriendly group of administrative people. Heaven forbid if you need to go into the office to ask a question. To anyone working as a teacher/admin at Mount Prospect, remember you WORK FOR US!!! We pay for your salaries/benefits so please learn to listen to the voices of concerned parents!

Couldn't have asked for a better school that Mt Prospect for my son. The teachers, principal, administration, every thing about the school beats my expectations.

If your child is White and you are moving from a different school district, this is not the place for you. Your child will immediately be deemed inferior .
