St Bede the Venerable is so much more than a school. It is a safe community where I send my kids, and they are able to learn everything they need to prepare them for their future. I love the environment at St Bede, and I love how every child that attends there is respectful. St Bede is amazing!
St. Bede is a school where the teachers go above and beyond for ALL students. They are constantly making themselves available to students and parents to help in any way they can. They work very hard to do what is best for the students.
The curriculum has been less-than-challenging for some time. My oldest graduated at the top of the class and is struggling through the first year of high school; the kids from other grammar schools are much better prepared. The new leadership is very detached from the kids and the parents. Furthermore, my kid reports that the bullying has gotten out-of-control. I do NOT recommend.
My oldest just graduated St Bede & I will have 5 attending this year. I love how St Bede is one big family :-) The children learn a lot about religion and how to care for one another. The teachers and staff are wonderful! I am truly greatful for all the help and support both principals have given to all the St Bede families!! My children have a wonderful learning experience there!! Go Tigers!! We love St Bede!! The Lord is great!
it is a wonderful school. the principal is the best he even won the best principal in chicago. if u want an academic school go here.
M children currently attend St Bede..and we love it...It has an excellent Principle and excellent teachers..It excels academically and spritually..as a parent, I know my pridest joys are going to the best school on the south side of chicago...On all grades levels, you can see they challege the students and the kids are Succeeding!!!Safe and Friendly environment..the Staff is Super!!
I disagree completely.My daughter went there since preschool as well,and i honestly thought their values were sincere, until a bully incident took place.Nothing was done with this very serious matter by the principle.So, if you want your children to attend a school that deals with bullying, this is the school for you.Also, their curriculum is not challenging at all.The students that fall behind get all the preference, and the students that need to be challenged get left behind.I realized how far behind the students are when i transfered my daughter.She was truly missing out on a great education, and for the same amount of tuition!!!!Too bad i realized so late.
I give St. Bede 5 Stars! My son went there and he loved it! We moved and I can't say too much about his new school. I think we both miss St. Bede! The teachers and the principal are great!
I give the school four stars. It's a friendly environment, the principal and teachers truly care about the children's physical and mental well being.
I really love the school. My daughter has been at St Bede since early pre-school and she loves it. I want the teachers to give more homework.
It's a great place for pride! St. Bede is a neighborhood of all kinds and proud of it. We love the school, support our Tigers in everything, and get the best education on the Southside. It is a wonderful place to raise a family and so proud to be a Tiger! We are....St. Bede! oh, by the way, our 8th grade girls won the championship in Volleyball and our 8th Grade boys were in the championship for football and currently in the running for the baseball championship!!
