Belmont-Cragin is a place of innovative learning. Students use exercises to release neurotransmitters for making connections and real learning.

The administration, teachers, and staff are very supportive of each other. We work collaboratively with parents and students. I feel that we provide a nurturing environment as well as rigorous work for our students so that each child can reach their highest potential.

My daughter has been going to this school since Nov of last year, shes in preschool. The teachers are awesome!! they care about your child like if they were family. The staff and teachers keep you well informed. They listen to your concerns, they help you interact better with your child and they let you/help you as a parent be more involved. Honestly i wish my daughter could have teacher like this throughout her life time.

I am a student from Belmont-Cragin and i can honestly say, i like going there. I am graduating in june 2012. I've spent 8 years in this school. My friends and classmates are literally like my family. Everyone is very connected in that school. They have great teachers like Barral, Garcia, and Wolski. who teach 5,6,7,8th graders. The only teacher i don't like is Kraft. She does rude comments to kids, especially if they got in trouble or did something wrong. Which i really dislike. Other than that great school. The teachers do care alot and get to know you individually since it's a very small school. Clubs, afterschools are great. I would totally recommend parents to let your child be a part of this school.

This is a fabulous school for pre-school. I feel blessed my children got in. I am less familiar with the elementary school, but the head teacher at the pre-school, Ms. Moya understands the children. We are a bilingual household so the model worked for us. A gem on the west side where few are hard to come by

The classrooms are beautiful. The teaching staff is very gentle and they use the Reggio Emilia approach, the school's atelier (art studio) is beautiful and very functional. It is a hidden gem and parent involvement is very encouraged.
