My son just began as a freshman and already I am very impressed. He looks forward to going to school.At first it looked like a little building on the corner, but the things my son is learning already, his attitude and motivation has changed from last year 100%. Something good is going on there and I am so thankful trevor is there! He was a homeschooler after the fifth grade when he tragically lost his dad. My only worry is that I cannot drive and what will I do when it is pouring down rain and he has to walk those blocks from the L. If I were wealthy, I would donate a courtesy van to pick up the kids walking from the L stop. My older son went to a small catholic school in Bloomington, Illinois. i feel I made the best decision for the younger one.

This school will not impress you with it's facilities, but like a small charming town this high school will grow on you. The school is small enough to observe every student, and yet big enough to offer plenty of after school activities. Th discpline at the school is enough to keep the students focused and not to much to the point where it's suffercating the kids. The atompshere is laid back but the approach to their objective of teaching kids is serious.

I think SGHS is samll enough to insure that my child is not invisible. The flip side of this, is that he has no opportunity for vocational pursuits or training. He has an IEP and does get some extra help, but it is a Catholic school and doesn't receive any government funding or my tax dollars. The curriculum is college oriented, the teachers frequently leave, and the sports are team oriented, rather than more individual (like swimming, gymnastics, or track/cross counrty) which my child might consider. I know it would be an expense to build a pool, but what about track or gymnastics? As the parent of a special needs child, I would like him to experience more in high school than being frustrated at learning.

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.
