Yes, we have some awesome teachers who follow our Maryland Charter: "Teaching: A Vocation, Not a Job ** We view teaching not just as a job of passing on knowledge to others in an effective way, but as a call by God to shape the hearts and empower the minds of our young people so they may be able to fulfill their God-given mission to love and to enrich the lives of others. Thus teachers see their students as children of their spirit, leading them by their own example to pursue truth in love. ** In this way, teachers strive to live their lives in a way that reflect the richness of the Church’s faith, communicating in an attractive and integral way the love of God and of the truth, the practice of virtue, and the Christian moral life. Teachers are encouraged to cultivate their own personal relationship with God through prayer and the sacraments, so as to foster this in the lives of all St. Mary of the Angels School’s children and parents. ** Their witness and example goes beyond their time in the classroom, but is to be lived in and through their whole life. The consistency of this unseen portion of their lives does indeed influence and have an impact on others—especially children, who are so sensitive to inconsistencies between words and action. That is why teaching at St. Mary of the Angels School is much more than a job—it is a vocation and a way of life, something to be lived, not a task to be performed." ** Teachers also do ongoing education, including Masters in education. One teacher finish hers last year. ** Pastor

We do encourage our teachers to implement differentiated learning, which involves providing each student with the content and a path to learning that fits their aptitude and proficiency. Why challenge students with material for which they are not ready? Why hold students back who have already mastered what other classmates have not? With differentiated learning, each child can go at their own pace and thus achieve greater success.

The overwhelming majority of kids are great at SMA and so are the parents. Of course there are some exceptions, but that can be found anywhere. SMA used to have Family Mass once a month where a different grade would participate in the mass, that didn't happen at all last year. I feel neutral about this because the kids are so great, yet I'm not sure it's all from the school. I do believe the kids feed off of one another and they listen and see things. Some of the teachers are beyond wonderful with the kids and really provide a warm and loving environment whereas things seem to change after 2nd grade either due to kids getting older or to the different teachers.

Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective
August 17, 2015
I have to say, some teachers are much better than others. I can't say that there are not some fantastic teachers at SMA where they are extremely effective, but this is in large part because of their own determination and money to help their students succeed. The school allows the teachers to pretty much do whatever it is they want, which may be a blessing to them, but a curse to kids that are above kindergarten. Teachers are only as effective as their leader, and that doesn't exist at SMA. They are also only as effective as the curriculum purchased by the school, and that is severely lacking at SMA, as are resources. This is due to nothing but SMA's severe mismanagement of money. Differentiation only existed last year for kids that were behind, not kids that were advanced. Despite being told a math journal would be implemented in October 2014, it never was. Our children were held back so the other kids could catch up. Most of a teacher's time was spent on those kids which was unfortunate to the rest of us.

SMA's saying should be, Families don't join SMA, their resources do! Once someone figures out, there's a new prek parent to prey on & cycle continues. *Too many empty promises. Where's the tech library promised & fundraised for years (2 entire AOH)? Oh, new lockers! We were duped with our own money. *--Too many goals never accomplished. I got lost on newsletters changing between deficit, tech library, STEM, curriculum, scholarship, differentiation, etc. *--Too much deception. Anyone at board meetings where they bid out contracts for landscaping & Spanish curriculum (both parents)? When there aren't multiple bids & presented in open, people talk & begin to question things, including if better is available at better cost. Members of School Advisory & PSA boards need to read Robert's Rules of Order. *The best never have to remind everyone they're the best, both as individual & collective. Humbleness is biggest virtue lacking at SMA & it's because it's overcompensating. *--When they use Fr.Hilary in terms of scholarship, it goes to kids of large families in need, not to curriculum! It's obligated thru the archdiocesan To Teach who Christ is campaign, how this was born/managed. *--In SMA's case, your money goes towards too many movie days, both during instructional time & incentive. There are too many assemblies! Cake, cake & more cake. Their lunch program is horrible (FSP) & nut-free is only classroom specific. Almost all schools these days don't allow half of the junk food to be brought in, SMA provides it! *--Parenting is the easiest thing in the world to have an opinion about, but the hardest thing in the world to do. Everyone at SMA, 5th grade excluded, isn't a parent. As parents, we didn't know until we knew. They use our children. Leading up to AOH they posted signs on classroom doors with kids' names. They only received stickers if parents participated in some way. SMA was sort of communistic when drilling it to them during announcements to get at parents so they could get a movie day! **I could go on & on. The kids deserve better. Demand better! See the actions, not just the words!

When the first graders received weekly spelling tests all year long, only near the end of the year was there differentiation, but not in the way you would expect. You would expect the smarter kids would receive harder words than "A" and "the," instead near the end of the year, there were a handful of kids that were SO behind (couldn't read, can't spell) and they received their own spelling test. Clearly this was in an effort in their own demented "no child left behind" policy, but all it does is hurt the kid that is behind and holds back the advanced kids. It's the antithesis of how one achieves grit and determination. I, personally, spoke with the teacher numerous times to get differentiation for my child that was bored, but she spent most of her time working with the multiple kids that were behind. Instead of differentiating and supplying harder work, my kid had to help the kids that were behind ("Maryland Charter"). It's not OK that my child has to be held back for the benefit of others when I am paying for a private school education. SMA does not have the resources or wherewithal to instill differentiation.

Homework is a concern normally discussed between teacher and parent. Usually the two come to find common ground that best meets the needs of the individual student and the common needs of the class. It is worth the effort. ** Some parents complain that their children receive too much homework and others—sometimes parents with children in the same classroom—complain that their children don’t have enough. Here is our goal as stated in the Maryland Charter: ** “Our objective is that, by the time the child gets to high school, he or she will have already taken on considerable responsibility for his or her life. This work with parents helps eliminate many of the sources of parent-teen conflicts, which often arise from parents asking their son or daughter to do something they really should be able to do on his or her own: getting up out of bed, making their bed, cleaning their room, doing their homework, chores, etc. Such requests often get a negative reaction in young people because it makes them feel that they are being treated like a child, not as an adult—children know that an adult doesn’t need another adult to get himself out of bed in the morning or to get himself to clean his room, etc.; an adult just does it.” ** Pastor

Our principal, teachers, staff, parents, and students deserve the respect of all. ** We attribute the growth of St. Mary of the Angels to God,who certainly called our principal, me the pastor, and other teachers and staff to respond to the challenge of turning a near failing school into something great! Certainly there is more to accomplish, but God has worked miracles through the Virgin Mary’s intercession, and with the response of so many generous persons. Here is an excerpt from the Maryland Charter: “A genuine sense of self-worth and respect arises from healthy relationships: knowing that one is loved for oneself as a child of God and that one is called to love God and others through study, hard work, respect, and self-giving. We cultivate a learning environment that develops the young person’s identity not based on competitive performance but on relationships: with God, parents, siblings,teachers, fellow students, and friends. So we encourage each child to develop an authentic relationship with God, not by performing a lot of external acts,but in discovering God’s personal love for him or her, with its call to heroism in his response of love and in developing his gifts for the service of others and society. This approach leads to increase academic performance as well as a healthy and stable disposition toward God, family, and friends.” Yes our outstanding families and teachers are cultivating respect and sense of self-worth through healthy relationships, but under great leadership team.

From our Maryland Charter: "Responsibility for the Learning of Others ** Students not only assume the responsibility for their own education, but are encouraged to help fellow students too, especially those having more difficulty in a particular subject and those younger than themselves. ** We encourage students to respond to the lack of mastery of a particular subject of one of their classmates with compassion and understanding. Students are encouraged to raise their hand and rephrase the question of the student who doesn’t get a teacher’s point, or to rephrase the teacher’s answer so as to make it easier for the other students to understand the answer. Such collaborative learning improves relationships between students while helping the more academically inclined students to achieve even greater mastery of a subject by helping others master it. Students may take part in teaching children in younger grades, both by tutoring work, doing study-exercises with them, or by teaming up together in an academic competition or exam." ** Pastor

It takes courage to be honest and sincere, just as it takes courage to be a teacher or a school administrator: to go out there each day and give your all, knowing that you may be criticize or challenged, even in anonymous forums like this… that takes courage. But our teacher and administrators keep coming back… because they love the children and the families they serve. We have great parents and teachers, which is indeed reflected in our kids. So many visitors have made that comment upon visiting our school: “There is something wonderfully ‘different’ about these kids.” Let the teachers know you appreciate the sacrifice they are making for our children, families, and country… they are heroic!

Another parent who wanted SMA to succeed, but is sadly throwing in the towel and leaving for another private school in the city. My experience with the PK program was quite good, teachers were caring and attentive to my children, with some being quite exemplary. The preschool program was a good entry into school for them. I cannot speak to comparative academics as I have not done enough research to speak authoritatively to the curriculum and to be honest, I view pk and k as more important in regards to socialization and nurturance than academic rigor. I give four stars because I feel the PK program is quite strong I give 1 star for grades 2-8. I urge all parents thinking of sending your children to SMA to not simply tour the facilities for the early grades as it is quite nice---take serious consideration the classroom facilities for grades 2-8, and consider as well class size, curriculum, and teacher support for these years. The upper grades are taught in the 2nd floor of the school and it is quite different than the school experience downstairs! For the upcoming 2015-16 year, the 2nd grade class will be comprised of one class, housed in a cramped upstairs classroom, and with only one teacher. The class size (26-30 students) is somewhat shocking in and of itself, as the enrollment for these same students during kindergarten was around 60 students, broken down into 3 classes. The teacher to student ratio for the 2nd grade during the 2015-16 school year rivals that of lesser Chicago public schools, which has garnered much criticism and is why many parents choose private schools in the first place! For the 2014-15 school year, the 7th/ 8th grade classes were combined, with one teacher! Not only does SMA not offer adequate differentiated education grade by grade, but also piles kids 2+ years in range of ages into one classroom due to inadequate space/facilities and a short supply of teaching staff. Unlike other parochial schools in Chicago, there is no room for the upper grades to grow although promises had been made that upper grade transformations were coming in the future. Empty promises I have not even mentioned student performance. Test scores are not shared. I know more about test performance at fellow Catholic schools through a google search than I do from my children's multi-year attendance at SMA!

The "strong academics" have been the Saxon Math program, a home-schooling math program. So, while we all paid for a private school education, homeschoolers were probably passing our kids by. The math homework was ridiculously easy and took the 1st graders 5 seconds to complete. They mastered counting pennies by month one. It never really got any harder all year long, the majority of parents were disgusted. So much so, the principal got a secret curriculum committee together to come up with another curriculum (not impressed with the parents on the secret committee. A music teacher and an ESL teacher shouldn't be picking out a math program.). They say they are implementing Singapore math, but who will teach the teachers how to teach Singapore math? I wouldn't get my hopes up. There have been more broken promises then actual promises that have come to fruition. However, this is all due to the principal and her inability to effectively run a school, promote cohesiveness, and develop her staff. She should spend more time honing-in on leadership skills and her job requirements so she doesn't have to run to the Pastor for every little thing because she can't sufficiently manage her role. Perhaps if she arrived at worked earlier than 7:50-7:55 AM every day she could better focus on lesson plans and curriculum of her staff instead of allowing them a free-for-all and judging her teachers by parents feedback of "oh I love him/her" and judged them by the test scores produced by the kids they teach!

Have you ever heard the saying, "You can't demand respect, you must command it?" It's equivalent to leading by example, not demanding it out of others because you believe you are so important. The principal demands respect. She will tell you how much she, and she alone, has done to grow the school, save the school, etc. We all know how well leadership does when there is only, "I, me, myself." Consequently, out of demand, SMA demands you follow their covenant and their Maryland Charter. It's a form of control and justification of SMA's lack of competence as it provides them an ability to hide their insecurities and incapabilities. Again, any love and respect is taught by the fellow outstanding families and teachers. Very hard to teach respect when demanding it.

I would not say terrible because there are some really good teachers. Pre-K trough 2nd grade is great expect what ever they learn begins to fade away by the time they make it to 4th grade. I experience many positive things but they don't match up to the negatives. I came looking for a smaller classroom size for my children so they can better learn because CPS failed. I found a great environment for my children that supported the values i was teaching at home. I did not realize that as my children got older there learning would suffer. My oldest came in with great testing scores from CPS and in less than 2 years drop to below average. I was not familiar with the new testing results and when i asked the principal and assistant principal to explain to me, they refuse. I had to learn my self and when I did I realize that they were doing worst that in a CPS School. The first communion was a huge disappointment. The children in the second grade along with the teacher worked very hard to prepare for this big day only to be share with some Saturday class children who along with their parents are rude and disrespectful. The good teachers have left because they have found no support to make a good learning environment for their students.

In an effort to save any potential parents the heartache so many of us have suffered, please know what to ask & look for when deciding on a school. Here are some highlights about our experience: * SMA is a Big Shoulders school. Please see their Website to see qualifications necessary to be a BS school. Note: this is NOT a good thing, especially sitting in the middle of Bucktown. * SMA has no ability to physically grow. That has been rented out to Midtown and Catholic Charities. In fact, CC moved in next door and SMA leadership never mentioned it to parents in 01/2015. Please google both to see what each is, especially what type of Catholic Charities is immediately adjacent to the school and requires a security guard. SMA sits in a district that's awful (financially, academically, etc). The schools are SMA, St. Helen's, St. Nicholas, St. Stan's and St. John Berchman. ALL Big Shoulders Schools. Other districts not far have stellar schools. They're in the black, National Blue Ribbon schools (Josaphat, St. Andrew). AACA is great, too. All Catholic schools with transparent everything. **please note how at those schools, parents give tours & no questions are off limits. At SMA, the totalitarian regime likes to control everything, including what you should know. Also note how board meetings are open, minutes distributed & members elected. Very different from SMA where meetings are closed & the President rules. (His 2yr term is supposed to be over 7/2015 along with the technology chair's term, too) * The entire '14-'15 school year, the music/arts teacher had no budget. That teacher fundraised ALL YEAR LONG. Then, a school severely in debt put on a ....$15,000.00 musical. Not even good schools in the black would ever do this. * the archdiocese is common core aligned. You need to ask yourself if CPS might suit your needs given you're paying a lot of $$$ at SMA that yields kids that are behind their peers due to poor academics. Not all of the teachers are even accredited! Anyone using it for prek & K is in love with it. We all were too. What's important to notice is when so many families that had been with SMA for a long time, including board members, yanked their kids in the middle of this past school year for other schools. Know what you are looking at & look at other schools that aren't Big Shoulders & compare.

I accredit all of it to the teachers and parents. Their value of the month is nothing but a smokescreen as administration preaches but doesn't lead by example. When you blatantly lie and deceive parents about the non-profit they are supporting, that's hardly acting with honesty and integrity. But, the majority of kids learn from the teachers, parents and one another. Great families equals great kids and SMA used to have plenty.

I did a lot of research before deciding on SMA. The principal, Beth Dolack, came to SMA in 2009 and since then the school has nearly tripled in size. The school had the largest enrollment increase in the Archdiocese in 2013-2014, too. It's amazing what a turnaround the school has experienced -- strong academics, committed parents, innovative approaches to teaching religion and morals, and fabulous teachers! No class is over 20 students, and in preschool, there are 2 teachers to every class. My daughter is in PreK 3, and there are 18 kids with 2 teachers. The level of attention she gets is fantastic. She has been learning things that seem advanced (to me) for this age, like addition, graphs, greater than/less than, evaporation, photosynthesis. She learns Spanish and Chinese in the after school program. And for religion, they have a "Virtue of the Month" -- joyfulness, friendliness, truthfulness, etc. to illustrate Catholic teachings, instead of just readings from the bible or something . The school incorporates activities based on this value into the curriculum for that month. And just as important - there's good diversity and the parents aren't snooty!

LOVE St. Mary of the Angels! Our son transferred from the pritzker gifted school( nightmare of a cps public school) and is now thriving in ms, Claire's kindergarten class! She is the most dedicated , organized and creative kindergarten teacher I have ever met! Our son is gifted and he's challenged and engaged in her class. We looked at a number of private schools from Latin - mt. Carmel and I am completely delighted with the staff/ teachers at sma! The class size is small and there is a lot of individual attention and feed back to parents. The parents/ staff are involved/ care about the school and students ( which was a refreshing change from the cps school our son attended). I honestly think the two negitive reviews were because their kids were not mature enough for a preschool setting. Every parent I have ever talked to has had nothing but glowing reviews of the sma pk program!

I'm honestly surprised by some of the negative reviews. I have had two kids go through the 3yr old Pre-K teacher described below, and I thought she was fantastic. I talked with many of the parents who also found her to be outstanding. In fact, it seemed that the only parents who struggled with this teacher at first were those where there was a stay at home parent or other arrangement where this was the child's first experience in a structured environment. I suspect that is the case with these comments as well. This teacher tells you exactly how it is - no sugar coating. The candid and constructive feedback is appreciated. There is something special about this school. The principal has a vision and is executing on that to produce excellence all around. We have been impressed by all the teachers we have worked with. There are parents who are very involved and very passionate about making this school special. The continued growth speaks volumes.

My daughter attended part time preschool here. The school is small (and hopefully remains that way) and the teachers and other staff know you and your child by name. You can literally call the principal on the phone and talk to her, unlike many schools where the principal is too busy to take time out of her day to speak to parents. All teachers are available via email. There are small class sizes and for preschool, 2 teachers in a room. The classrooms are huge, cheerfully painted, and stocked with fun learning toys. As this is preschool, I'm not sure how rigorous the academics are but all activities are learning activities. This school will not be a good fit if you are looking for "day care" where the kids just play all day. This school will be a good fit if you want your children to learn and play. I loved that when it was nice outside the teachers took the children outside to play, best of both worlds. You are not supposed to mention names on this website so I will just say that the office manager whose name begins with an R and ends with an A is such an amazing woman. She loves all the children in that school and can do 15 things at the same time. We are very pleased.

As a former student, I can honestly say that this school is terrible. Teachers spend more time trying to control the class than actually teaching, students are expected to do physical work thanks to a lack of staff (7th and 8th graders were forced to set up for the church's weekly bingo and move desks, boxes, and other large objects at the end of the school year, for god's sake), most of the students have no initiative to learn and harass the few that do, the school itself is falling apart, and (as were many others) I was not prepared for high school when I graduated.
