When I drop off my children I feel that they are safe in a school like St. Philip. Great parental involvement and strong school system. You are fortunate to be able to start your child off at St. Philip and to see them graduate from such a great school! It used to be combined classes with the first and second graders but not anymore...they each have their own classrooms and teachers. By the way- The sinks and water fountains HAVE been repaired. Like anything else things tend to break but these were repaired and are now exceptionally beautiful and completely functioning.

Excellent teachers in the early childhood program, strong principal, our daughter is in the preK program 2nd year. Nurturing, Safe environment, children are very kind to one another, you can see the kids are very happy and are learning just by observing their interaction with one another. My daughter can read and always surprises me with little nuggets of knowledge she learns at school

And why is the girl's water fountain broken? Why has it BEEN broken for months? Honestly, you hired the guy to break the thing. Now it hurts to crank the thing because the guy came, took off the handle, and left. I love the teachers, though. But to put two classes together is insane. I asked a second grader what they thought of second grade, and they said they were learning all first grade stuff.

My daughter is in her second year in the early education program at St. Philip. So far, I am very impressed. The programs to teach children to learn through play are clever, the religious teachings are inspiring and I know my daughter is young but I can see her gaining comfort and confidence in the knowledge of God and Jesus Christ as her savior, the meals are nutritious and we may have just lucked out on the other kids in the class but friendships have also been an added bonus. My daughter can't wait to go to school every morning. I have also noticed, that among those who were born and raised in the city, St. Philips seems to have an excellent reputation.

St. Philip is an excellent school with good academics and a fantastic technology program. There is a variety of sports offered: cross-country, basketball, volleyball, bowling, golf, track. Two of my children went here and are doing well in high school. The class size is quite small, yet there are no double grades like many private Lutheran school have on the northside of Chicago. The academics seem to be ahead of most of the local public elementary schools.

St.Philip is a great school. the books are up to date in every subject and grade. The staff really knows how to teach. the principal is a great leader and keeps the school organized. The sports teams are very succsesful just recently the boys basketball team got 3 in the state and 9 in the country. Last year the JV boys team won the city and subarban tournament. This year the JV girls team has won all the Tournaments they have participated in. The technolgy program is amazing they have all the newest technology and teach the kids how to take apart computers and to put them back together. and they have to learn how each part works. They learn the history of technolgy and make technolgy. It's a great school for immigrants who need help with english or kids who need help in school.

Good schools have extracurricular activities, a good environment, high standard academics, and good teachers to help their students. This school has all of them. Although the teachers can be very immature and act like children at times which is just ridiculous because they are supposed to be a professoinal teaching staff. Though most of the teachers are a well functioning staff. I am dissapointed in this drop of teacher quality that the school has displayed.

This school is amazing. I love it. If you compare it to other Lutheran schools it's probably one of the best. Toward public schools probably averages out the same. St. Philip is probably one of the most diverse Lutheran let alone Private schools out there. Though, you should be aware that the reviews below are true. So that should be taken into consideration as well. Also it should be noted that things may get out of hand and may not be good for a child's exposure. Other than that it ok.
