Love this school. Teachers are great - my child loves to go to school! She is learning above what other children her age are at. Would recommend this school to anyone looking for a great place to send your children to learn not only book studies but learn about God. Top notch school!!!

I have been to this school all my life and I love it! It doesn't even feel like school! We have so much fun learning and the teachers are great! I thank God for allowing me to be in this school. You can tell that the teachers really care about you. If you are a parent and looking for a godly christian school, I recomend Ravenwood Baptist Christian School.

The school is ok, the teachers doesn't communicate well with the parents, I don't feel that the school have enough divesity. The older teacher within the school appear to do a much better job then the young teachers, some does not even bother to speak, as I new parent within the school, I often feel out of place and often think of removing my child. It's only for the convenient hours that I allow my child to staff. I would not recommend

This is a great school for every little one. The teachers really care about the children. The second grade teacher Miss Traxler is the best teacher in Chicago. Good teachers, affordable price and solid education in Bible studies!! What else can I expect? I thank God for guided me to find this school.

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.
