I have 5th and 2nd grade children at Prescott Elementary and is Secretary of the Prescott Local School Council.
We have watched Prescott flourish and grow over the last 6 years. Our oldest started in Kindergarten in 2011 wehn Prescott was a fledgling school that a year earlier was on the brink of shut down due to under enrollment. With the help of parent volunteering, participation and interaction, and the trememdous teachers, principal and support staff, Prescott has since become a force and one of the top acheiving neighborhood schools in Chicago Public Schools.
In 2016, Chicago Magazine rated Prescott #14 in the city out of 300 schools including charter and selective enrolllment schools.
Through Feb. 16, we are working to get as many neighborhood kids enrolled as we can for Fall 2017 in Kindergarten and 1st Grade so that we can better prepare for enrollment needs.
