Love St. Jane. Very small school with lots of individual attention. My daughter is very happy and it is well worth the money.

My kids have been attending St Jane for a few years, and in that time I have gotten to know the teachers and staff as people who truly care about their academic performance, growth, and faith formation. The school is small but I love how it has a close knit family feel. While I don't personally know a lot of the parents everyone is nice and we have not had any problems with bullying or cliques. There are lots of opportunities for parent volunteering (but it's not mandatory) and the teachers and staff have been willing to work with the parents in those areas. The principal is professional and friendly and is always wiling to help with any issues that come up. Is this school perfect? Well, no, but I don think that ANY school is perfect and I feel that St Jane has definitely prepared my children adequately for Catholic high school. It has overall been a good fit for us though and well worth the financial investment.

This school educates and supports the spiritual, intellectual and physical needs of students. The teachers are attentive to patents' and children's needs. There is great community spirit of sharing and caring in the school's culture. (Really, the school is a great bargain compared to the amount of tax dollars spent per pupil at Chicago public schools. It is so sad that the education provided by CPS is failing so many children and parents living in Chicago.)

Bullying is a big problem at this school and the principal and some of the teachers are not very proactive in handling these issues.I have been very unhappy with this school for this whole year and plan on withdrawing them and sending them to a new school next year. All the money that we spend on Catholic School has been such a waste and we do not feel our kids are getting the best education possible! Some complain about the Kindergarten teacher - she is probably one of the best teachers at the school! She is strict and no-nonsense and that is exactly what the students need to set the foundation for school!

My children attended this school and received a wonderful education. All were accepted into the university of their choice. No school is perfect and not all students will fit well with their teachers, but St Jane works to acheive the best possible environment for young minds.

This is not the best school if your child is attending kindergarden. I had many problems with the teacher and had to eventually take my child out of this school. After a month which was the best thing I did. Now my child is doing excellent and is more happy and I am calm and no longer worry about him in school.

My siblings and I went to St. Jane. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. They gave us the foundation we needed to lead successful lives. Even though I had moved out of the area, I was sure to send my daughter here as well. She was accepted into one of the best high schools in the Chicagoland area and continues to excel. The teachers and parents work very well together and are very involved with the children.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
