We could not be happier with St. Robert's! Our daughter transferred in during the middle of the year from another school and she immediately felt welcome and at ease. The teachers and principal are always available to discuss whatever is on a student's or parent's mind, and the principal has a very visible and respected presence. Everyone is known by their first names, including the parents. The education my daughter has received is impressive, and her love of learning has been nurtured from day one. The discipline policy is strictly enforced and, unlike other schools, conflict between students is handled as soon as it is brought to the attention of teachers. Bullying is pretty much non-existant, and the standards of conduct for students are very high. I am proud to recommend St. Robert Bellarmine to anyone who is looking for a wonderful school!

We started sending our daughter to this school last fall for Pre-K . We could not be happier with the outcome. Our daughter absolutely LOVES coming here. Her teachers are patient and nurturing and I truly feel like she is in great care when with them. The principal Mrs. Mijal is wonderfully focused on the kids and has a strong, responsible vision for the school. Enrollment continues to increase, in my opinion, due to her strong leadership. In addition, the school seems to have a lot of resources for a private school such as special ed programs, and a school psychologist. I also appreciate the consistent communication that we receive, and the opportunities to meet with other families. We were not members of the parish upon deciding to send our daughter here, but still feel a sense of community from the other families and children. We plan to continue with St. Roberts post preschool because of the wonderful experience we have had. I honestly feel like this school is a hidden gem in a neighborhood where can great schools can be hard to come by.

We researched a number of schools before deciding that this was exactly where we wanted our children to flourish. It's clear that the school leadership and teaching staff put the children first. There are a number of ways families can get involved in the school and Parish. This is our fourth year here at St. Robert's and have two children who take great pride in their school.

We are parents of a 3-year-old preschooler and could not be happier with SRB. Our son loves going to school each morning. It's remarkable how much he has learned in a few short months. We are also very happy with the entire SRB community from his teachers and the principal to the fellow parents.

St. Robert Bellarmine is a wonderful school. Not only did my brother and I graduate from there in the 60's our children also attended and graduated. I find it to be one of the best catholic schools on the northwest side of chicago. The teachers are fantastic, so devoted, caring and kind. My children loved to wake up and go to school every day. They really loved their teachers. I give St. Roberts 5 stars.

I have 2 children attending SRB. The teachers are fantastic. There is a real sense of community. There is not a high turnover rate of teachers. Our principal is constantly working on adding new programs to make our school better for our children and future students. My family and I have had a wonderful experience. I was referred to SRB by a friend and am pleased with our decision. I do not worry about my children's future, I know they will be sucessful.

SRB has been in our family for almost 50 years. Four children; four weddings and now four grandchildren have gone through this school/church. It is family and family sticks together. People have come & gone; and so have programs and opportunities but at any time the future of our children are what all those changes were about. You couldn't ask for a better environment for our children.

Everything. My husband and his siblings attended SRB when they were children and loved it. They grew up to be great people! It is truly a place where I know my child will learn not only the usual things like science, math, reading, ect, but she will also learn how to be a good person. The teachers and principal (Mrs. Mijal.) are absolutely amazing! Always going above and beyond. The parents are also wonderful! It's such a close-knit school. Parents look out for each others' children. I know my daughter is safe, even when I'm not around. It's definitely a school I'm happy to sacrifice so many things for in order to send my daughter to.

Saint Robert Bellarmine is an excellent Catholic school because it offers a nurturing environment that enables children a chance to shine and blossom. We had several options at our fingertips, however, we chose Saint Robert Bellarmine for a number of reasons. As a new family this past year, we were immediately drawn in by the sincere sense of kindness and passion, direction and focus, as well as driven leadership narrowly focused on the success of each child as they develop spiritually, physically, and emotionally. The students at SRB are part of the future generation that will help to heal a wounded world. So, it's no wonder then that the school is planting seeds of faith, leadership and integrity in their hearts and minds -- and has done so for many years. SRB is known to develop students who are good stewards and contribute to society in a positive manner. In addition, families, faculty, and the parish help to create a place where you want to come and pray with your neighbors and friends, and be a part of something larger than you could have imagined. It's a loving environment that makes SRB a great place to call home. Nestled in Jefferson Park, on Chicago's northwest side, this is one of the top Catholic schools.

This school is best kept secret in Chicago! We transferred from another catholic school last year and cannot begin to describe how fortunate we are to have found this place. The religious education, discipline and the cooperation from the principal and staff are amazing. This is how school was when we were growing up. Our children will be better people because of their experiences from St. Robert Bellarmine.

Our son goes to St. Robert's and we are parishioners there too. It's a great community and an excellent school. We are extremely impressed by the dedication of the teachers, the curriculum, and the religious education. He loves going to St. Robert's. He's excited about some of the new after school activities too, like piano lessons and the 'PE for Me' sports program.

I'm a student at Saint Robert Bellarmine and I have to say that it is a fantastic school, and I absolutely adore it. I transferred from a different school to SRB and I immediately felt the welcoming environment. The teachers there are remarkable. I will be graduating this year, and I can totally see why I'm going to miss it. The children are well disciplined and very educated. Sr. Mary Lou is currently the principal there and she maintains a very well balanced school and she's very involved. I will always remember her helping out the kids in the lunchroom! Saint Roberts has a very strong view on sports. The coaches give fair play, but our teams are outstanding. Saint Robert's main message is to treat others with respect. This school has definitely made a positive influence in my life, and I know it will make a difference in your child's.
