- a
The staff at CG is highly experienced, well-trained, proactive and empathetic. We have found after raising 4 kids that the quality of the teachers is a school's most valuable asset. Additionally, our kids felt very comfortable in the school. The principal and deans are excellent leaders and the community supports the students as a whole.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
The staff deals with it one and one. They listen.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The leadership at CG includes some of the most effective leaders I have ever seen in business or education.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The culture at the school is one of inclusion. Some suspect that sprang from the 1995 Train-Bus accident tragedy. The school has won IHSA sportsmanship honors and leads in charity work. The leaders quietly model this by nudging kids into community service work and showing up at almost every sporting event.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Our students all attended out of state colleges (5 total). All felt they were a slight advantage compared to the in-state students due to the education they received at CG. Especially in English and writing.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is manageable and students have access to the information. Teachers are not overly unreasonable if the student appears to be proactive on a normal basis.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
As a parent of a child who does not "fit the mold" of a "popular kid," I have observed students of all walks of life demonstrate sincere kindness to our daughter. I have also seen other students of diverse needs and backgrounds publicly celebrated and supported by students as a whole.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
As a parent of a student with a documented disability who has a 504 plan, teachers have been proactive in reaching out to us in terms of how to best meet our daughter's needs.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The building administration under principal Jay Sargeant leads by example in putting student needs first and foremost. Even if (and when) I may disagree with a decision, we know it is made keepin the best interest of our students in mind.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Staff are very relational with students - where more is caught than taught. Values like compassion, integrity, teamwork, and humility and modeled and lauded on a daily basis. Students who model these qualities are celebrated once per quarter in what is called "Breakfast of Champions."
