My son just started in the early childhood class (ages 3-5) this year and we love the school. Ours on loves going to school and has really flourished since starting school. Here are our reasons: 1. Invested, caring teachers and principal 2. Welcoming, invested, caring parent community 3. Many opportunities to get involved in the school. 4. Prompt effective communication via email, phone app, classroom Facebook page, and school Facebook pages 5. Individualized instruction that emphasizes social emotional growth.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers care. It shows! One of my kid's "hated" a teacher because she pushed him and pushed him and he needed that. He needed those pushes.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Homework is determined by each teacher and can be based on child's needs. Each kid learns differently.

My children have greatly benefited from attending this school, both academically and emotionally. The teachers, the parents, the administration LSC and PTA members all work together to make this school a community that can work for each child. CPS isn't doing well and there are cuts everywhere, bit then current principal, has somehow made Suder's budget work and all of the arts are still at Suder :) And, when people work together, as we do here at Suder, the children achieve and succeed!

Montessori education was meant to public. Suder is a perfect example of what a diverse Montessori education should look like. We are grateful for the high quality teachers and welcoming community at Suder. Our voice is valued and we thoroughly enjoy a school community that cares. Our children are flourishing due to a strong literacy program and teacher's ability/curriculum focus on the individual child, not a series of test scores. Education is about guiding the child's natural enjoyment of discovery not forcing children to learn. Level ratings mean nothing - visit the school, talk with parents, students, staff, attend LSC meetings - help create something positive that will last a lifetime.



- a
We have had many years of great teachers at Suder, even though administration has changed. Like all schools, there will be a teacher that will move on in their career or will need to be let go. That has been less than 2 percent at Suder over the years. I find it sad that there are complaints that the school changed tiers or that the PTA isn't welcoming, when in fact it is parent involvement that makes a school great. Other great schools have parents there every day volunteering--this is why they are great. Get involved and make a commitment to your child'd education and things will change. One day a year is not enough. I day a week is what other parents at Tier 1 schools are giving. Remember only your hard work can make positive changes--it takes a village.
