The "school" moves every 3 or 4 years from rented school district buildings allegedly because their students cause damage and their teachers can not control the students. During the last 15 years the school was in Bartlett, Schaumburg - (2 separate locations), and Hoffman Estates. It is now located in Hanover Park. Why does each school stop their rental agreement? Ask lots of questions before you send your child there or donate money. Parents park where they want - apparently parking at a fire hydrant or driving in the wrong way on a one way lane is not an issue for them. Not a single student has ever been known to fail a class. It appears that just paying the fee guarantees that "baby" will pass and get a "diploma". Can any of the students actually read and write in Polish?

Nobody in the school with the exception of a couple of students, take it seriously. The education is made to maintain your understanding of the language more so then to learn it. Not everybody speaks the language perfectly in the classes and it would help if questions could be answered in english, which they frequently are not. I know a student that turned in no homework and turned in all but maybe 2 of his tests blank( the two he turned in had 2 questions answered) and he still passed the class. That is frankly unacceptable. The standards are too low.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was a student

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise standards, teach the language from scratch.
