It's a good school, the classes are small and there's more one on one time with the teachers. I have two children currently attending this school and they are taught very well, they definitely push the kids academically. The teachers are very dedicated and go out of their way to help the students. It's a very loving and safe environment for children. The only complaint I have is that they lack funding (being that it's not CPS) for certain programs like music and art.

My daughter's both came from CCA, which were taught very well, well manners and the curriculum...excellent! I love the fact that Jehova is teaching them just as well or better. My oldest daughter loves to play sports, and they are very organized and have lots to choose from. She is in track, volleyball, and basketball. Their compouter lab is awesome as well.

This school has an excellent educational & physical program and a very supportive environment. The teachers are up to date on the latest teaching methods. I tried public schools for a while but was so disgusted with their lack of textbooks and teacher follow up. Since I re-enrolled my child in Jehovah Lutheran her grades have skyrocketed and is well above average grade level. They also have a state of the art computer room.

My niece transferred there after going to a city public grammar school (her old private school was closed). She loves her new school and Jehovah has absolutely pushed her academically. The teachers are very nice and knowledgeable. I've very happy with the choice my sister made!

My daughter has been enrolled at Jehovah since Pre-K3 (3 years old) and has been taught with a very good & challenging curriculum every year. She is now in 3rd grade and loves it there. The classes are small enough to where the teachers can work closely with their students. Parents are encouraged to get involved with the school. There is after school sports, choir and other activities. I recommend this school for those of you looking for a private school that you plan on being with long-term.

The curriculum is discussed w/ the parents prior to the end of the 1st quarter. The class size is roughly 11 to 1. For such a small school it is amazing how well organized all of the activities and special education programs are provided. They offer sports as well as extra help when needed

Being a parent of a child that currently attends this school has amazingly changed my view of a teachers dedication to their students. Prior to attending Jehovah Lutheran my daughter graduated from a Chicago public school kindergarten not recognizing her numbers nor her alphabet. So I changed her to this school and now being 6 yrs. old, she now knows how to read, add, subtract, knows about science projects, history, religion, and is starting to multiply. That is amazing for my family and I. This coming fall my 5 yr old will be starting kindergarten and from what I've heard they start learning how to read.

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.
