This school has been a nightmare for over 2 years. They have let go of a lot of great teachers and continue to disappoint children academically. They might as well be public school for their out dated curriculum. They are disorganized and for the money I spent at this school and seeing the results of my kid's education, I am seeing it now with all the tutoring I am doing. It all starts with the principal of that school. If anyone is to blame it is her.
This is an excellent school with very creative, fun teachers that really help the children learn.
My son has been going to his school for a while and at first it was going good but as the time passes by It s getting very irritating on how things are being handled. My son has no typing skills. The music teacher falling asleep in the classroom. The staff not being paid. Accidents not being reported. Volunteers acting as teachers what is going on with the principle I think its time to put her out. But I do have to say some of these teachers are excellent teachers they just need to have a better boss. Playground was bulit and the kids rarely go out to play... Why ?
St. Turibius has an exceptional faculty that is dedicated to the students they serve. Students are consistenly challenged to succeed and reach their full potential. As a school, we work hard to ensure all students are given the time and attention necessary for their individual learning styles. We have excellent technology and resources that most other Catholic schools are not able to offer. St. Turibius school educates, empowers and nurtures the mind and spirit of all students to become life long learners and leaders in the community.
I love the teachers, and the staff..and the reachers are great...and my child has grown so much in his awarewaness of all that is around him...I love this school..
The teachers are good but the building and the restrooms need to be kept up. The bathrooms smell and I don't know why noone gives that place a good cleaning. I'm surprised that the principle hasn't stepped in to do something about it.
this is the best school ever. the teachers are so dedicated and they help you so much if you need help. they tech you so many things other than english,math,spelling.social studies, and religion. they show you how to be good leaders and have good manners. They teach so many things that will get you far in the future! I defiantly recommend this school!
i used to go to this school. i still am a student. I read some of the parents' comments. St.Turibius definitely is not what it used to be. Last time, I attended the school, they were just planning out all the new changes . Academically, I am so proud to say that the teachers helped me advance but the current new principal... should've stayed a teacher.
My 3 children attended St. Turibius. For my oldest it was the best educational experience. As the years went on the primary grade teachers, especially K were not so good. Higher grade teachers (6, 7, 8) great teachers - very dedicated. New Principal not well liked - should have stayed a teacher. The school is not what it used to be -
St. Turibius School is fine and has produced hundreds of graduates going on to become morally upstanding, accomplished citizens. The school has much to be proud of and is constantly evealuating, growing and developing.
This is the best school ever my children do not want to leave at all. I will rcommend this school to any one who is looking where to put their child!
I really want to say something, St. Turibius has been so far the best school, good teachers and they are not so hard on you. Specially the principal she very dedicate to her job and she is really cares about our children. I really do like this school..
This school was very dissapointing. My children went here and they have cousins in public schools that are more advanced than them. Very sad for such a nice looking Catholic School. I wouldn't recomend it.
3 daughters from St. Turibius...one graduated from Northwestern, two are now at the University of Chicago. Great foundation from St. Turibius and involved teachers!
The staff is always willing to work with you and your child. Teachers return phone calls promptly. Family mass is well coordinated by the school children once a month. Pastor has great sense of humor.
Along-standing traditional catholic school educational quality. Teachers that care with strong parental involvement evident. School/church connection in respectable southwest side neighborhood. Have seen these qualities persist through three generations of students of which my son is currently a sixth grader. Extra curricular activities, experienced administrative leadership, and wide range of sports involvement for all students.
