Choosing a school for your child has always been a difficult decision since your choice will be directly reflected in his or her development- academically, spiritually, and socially. My husband and I agonized from the time my daughter was 3 until she was 5 over where to send her. We are a young married couple and financially didn't believe we could afford a Catholic school. However, after examining carefully the CPS schools in our area-and the inherent problems of overcrowded classrooms, exceedingly low academic test scores, bullying and the like, our choice became clear, and we chose St. Ladislaus School. It has been the most endearing decision we have made together. From day one as kindergarten began, my daughter has returned home every day with a sense of wonder and a thirst for learning. The academic progress she has shown is nothing short of remarkable. Smaller class sizes, devoted and caring teachers, an exciting new reading and math program to begin this year, and a principal who has worked with us tirelessly to assist with our financial tuition dilemna only reinforces the correctness of our choice. I strongly recommend St. Ladislaus school.

This school is the best place to have your child grow in all the important virtues and ethics that are lacking in the 21st century. It may be small however it allows students to be fully grown in spirit and love from teachers. There students are not numbers but people with many interest and qualities.As an alumni I recommend this school to everybody especially since there are so many ways the school has to lower tuition for parents

My children are students at St Ladislaus. I love the small classroom sizes. The school has some after school programs. They offer before and after care at a affordable rate. The teachers are caring and knowledgeable. The tuition is affordable especially for families with Multiple children. The principal listens to parents concerns. My children are recieving an excellent education.

As a parent of a child that has completed the Preschool program at St. Lads, I am very happy. When I was looking for a Preschool for my son to attend I wanted more than just a daycare. I wanted him to have a curriculum and for him to actually learn and at St. Lad's that is exactly what he did. He was lucky that he had wonderful teachers and teacher's aids that made school fun. I won't lie and say that the first few days of him going to school were easy since this was the first time that he was away from home. But as the year went on he went from a shy little boy who wouldn't make eye contact to a social butterfly who wouldn't stop talking. And now 2 years later as he prepares to enter Kindergarten here at St. Lads, he is still very happy every morning to go to school. What makes this school so great in my opinion is that although it is strong academically, it is still small enough that all the teachers know each student's names regardless of the class they're in. They emphasize parent involvement which is important for us as parents to know what is going on in our children's schools. So if you're looking for a school, I recommend you look at St. Ladislaus.

My grandson is a kindergarten student at St. Ladislaus. The new principal has infused her energy, her enthusiasm, and her determination to allow St. Ladislaus the opportunity to become a predominant leader and force in educational achievement and development. The teachers are a blend of veteran educators combined with young and innovative new teachers whose vitality and creativity have become infectious. The school is multicultural, and features a challenging academic curriculum. The teachers believe that wisdom begins with wonder and that this is a school where children come first, and where ALL children are honored. The basic philosophy of St. Lads is, that it is a school where students are given problems to solve, not answers to remember. Being a Catholic school, religion is a very important part of the school curriculum. The entire faculty emphasizes in their teaching educating the minds of our students, while remembering to educate their hearts. If you are in search of a school where education is received and achieved, look no further- St. Ladislaus is that school. At St. Lads your child will experience teaching that will turn today s learners into tomorrow s leaders.

I love the tour I took of the school. It seems that everyone is very close knit and the teachers are very warm and caring. I have a former teacher of mine that works there and she helped me all the way to enroll my son when I thought I might not afford it. They care about the children and the familys at large. I could not love them enough.

This school is filled with hard-working teachers, students, and staff members. The teachers expect excellence and from my own experience, the parents appreciate these expectations. This school is in no way "on a downward spiral". The parents are fabulous and are always looking to help out when they can. The new principal is fair, kind, and a joy to work for! New clubs have been started, such as a Newspaper, and several afters-chool activities are being implemented. When my children are old enough, they will be attend this wonderful school!

My daughter started at St. Ladislaus in the Pre-K last year. Her experience has been very positive and I have had the great pleasure of watching her develop and prepare for her new adventures in Kindergarten. Our experience has been so positive that I have started participating in after school programs and volunteering when I can. As I write this review I am joyfully listening to the beginning violin class practice during the summer program. I look forward to experiencing Kindergarten with my oldest daughter and can not wait to see my youngest start her first day of Pre-K this Fall. I am an arts educator who has had a great deal of experience in a variety of schools throughout the country. That being said, I would not change a thing in my daughters education or the choice of school we have made.

My child attended to this school during the school year 2009-2010. In my opinion the teachers are more focused on having an 'easy day' that in the education or well being of the students. Just as an example, they take all of the children to the washroom at the same time in order to avoid interruptions for the rest of the day. I did not notice enthusiasm or patience on the teachers, but I noticed lack of experience.

Maybe in the years those other two reviews were written the school was good. But it is 2009 and this school is not the greatest. In no way does it teach better than a public school. The teachers are something else. some are helpful others are not so helpful to say the least. I don't think this is the best school ever. There was a new principal last year that introduced music and other activities like football and basketball. Yes this school did not have teams or leagues or school colors or a school symbol. With this principal the students learned to have fun but also be well applied students. For some reason or another the prinipal was changed and the school seems to be going in a downward spiral. There was no football team and the basketball team is now on another league where they play on school nights.

This was the place to go if you wanted to avoid the Chicago Public School system. A lot of good memories. I never regretted attending. Academics are average and like most catholic schools, they are always short on funds. Teachers are good although underexperienced and underpaid. Save the money, move to the burbs.
