This school is great! I go there and I am in 6th grade. This school is way above average.


Posted January 28, 2007

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.

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.
