Immaculate Conception Grade School lays an excellent foundation in the Catholic faith and in academics. The students who graduate from this school are leaders who excel in high school and beyond. The opportunities to be involved in a top-notch athletic program, an unbelievable Spring Play performance, and many extra-curricular and service oriented activities, cannot be matched. ICGS produces leaders who know they have a responsibility to make our world a better place by following in the footsteps of Jesus. As parents, it was the best investment we have ever made. Not only did our children benefit from their time there, but we became part of a community that embodies faithfulness, dedication, compassion, and generosity.

Immaculate Conception Grade school competes with another Catholic Grade School, a Christian Grade school, a Lutheran Grade School and an excellent suburban, DuPage county public school district, all in the same town and ICGS is usually full or maxed-out with enrollment. There are numerous reasons for this. Great pastoral and principal leadership, devoted teachers, challenging academics, caring environment, exciting sports programs, state of the art facilities in a historic building. If you send your child here and don't get involved, you're really missing the boat. I have 4 children who graduated from ICGS who have a strong moral fiber, sound academic background and enjoy all athletics. submitted by Ted Vatch

Excellent education both from a religious as well as other academic subjects. Small class sizes, great parent involvement. Very dedicated teachers with many years of experience at the 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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
