Highest quality of programs. Amazing Music, Art, Drama, and Sports departments. If you want to be very involved you can be. I went to school there and loved it. I can truly say that there is no better Chicago elementary, grammar school.

My child has attended Anshe Emet for 4 years. It is a very nuturing, academically challenging environment with a focus on Jewish studies. Hebrew is part of the curriculum. Children are taught sensitivity to others. The curriculum moves about 1 year ahead of the public school's curriculum in Chicago. While some supports exist for LD kids, this is not the place for them and they will eventually drop further behind unless they avail themselves of private tutoring. Parents are demanding and very involved. Some can be snooty but I am sure this is the case with any private school. Teachers are kind and caring and many have years of experience, though some are young and leave to start families of their own. Graduates do exceptionally well when transitioning into 8th grade. If your child is not well behaved and bright, this might not be the place for them.
Uh oh! No photos. This frame will look much better when you
