Adler Park School Reviews
As a parent of a child who had attended Adler Park School at one time, I had high hopes and had heard nothing but wonderful things about Adler. Unfortunately it didn't take long to figure out that unless you were in good with the principal she would make dealing with any issue a living hell. Like with any school they are there to protect the teachers and not the students. When my child had a problem with her teacher, the principal was unrealistic and completely uncooperative in looking into the situation claiming "things of this nature could not happen here". Her adamant refusal to look further into the situation still makes me sick till this day.
Sadly when a teacher picks on a child there really is no way to prove the accusations and in the end your child suffers further from your attempt as their parent and advocate to keep them "mentally" safe in the classroom.
Adler Park has been a complete and utter disappointment in choosing a good school for my child. I expected more from a school, looked upon with such high regard from other parents; of course those would be parents who have not had to confront such a tough issue on behalf on their child.
I would not recommend this school to anyone and I would definitely recommend that if a sensitive issue arises you not contact the principal for support as she is completely one sided and does NOT have your child's well-being in mind but her own "tush" instead.
