I must say Most Holy Redeemer is one of the best Catholic schools in the area and going to a public school in the area and then then transferring to MHR was one of the best things my parents ever made me do and I believe that the Catholic education taught me to be a better person and a better rolemodel. The principal doesn't like kuds though gives dirty looks at students ar recess and lunch and she cut the lunch from thirty minutes to fifteen minutes and the samw for recess.

My child attends preschool at Most Holy Redeemer and I have had nothing but great experiences here. My child has a severe food allergy and the teachers and principal took it upon themselves to take every precaution necessary to make sure that my child is safe in school. My child comes home every day happy to be home, but excited to tell me all about the day. The education that your child will receive at this school is beyond any other school in the area. I appreciate the fact that my child will receive a great education with a religious upbringing as well. I think it is fantastic that my child starts and ends her day with prayer. Most Holy Redeemer is a great school and I am very happy that I am able to send my child there.

My child attended preschool here & what was supposed to be a fun and enjoyable experience, was nothing even close to that. From the 1st day of school, one the preschool teachers informed us that the school was VERY strict. If your child is a robot, this school is for you. The principal does not return phone calls nor respond to parent concerns. There were several unpleasant events that occurred while my child was a student there that no child or parent should have to go through. Since the school is private they are not required by law to document anything nor work with you to resolve any issues. I believe, if you are in the clique your experience will be fantastic and because of that, I m sure there will be families that will contradict my experience. It s a shame as our family wanted to support the school & parish but I refuse to be treated differently by being new to area. Fortunately, we have many other options in the neighborhood, including outstanding public schools that we pay high taxes for. If you are new to the area please do your research as what might seem like the popular choice might not be the best for your family.

The school teaches children in the vision and tradition of the Sisters of the Holy Cross. Many alumi score 36 on their ACT and continually receive scholarships to universities for academics and athletics. The school emphasizes Catholic character, encouraging children in social justice service projects in service to the poor. Most Holy Redeemer is one of the finest Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago and offers a better education than public schools in the area!

I believe in the education offered at Most Holy Redeemer. Taught by enthusiastic teachers, children learn to grow in knowledge, compassion, and fatih. The school produced three students who scored a 36 on their ACT test. Numerous students also graduated from nearby high schools as number one in their class. Along with a fantastic education, the students at Most Holy Redeemer take numerous football, basketball, soccer and many other sports championship titles. Gifted academically, physically, and spritually, alumni continue the tradition recieving scholarships to prestigious universities. A proud Redeemer Raider, I believe that Most Holy Redeemer far supercedes the public schools of the neighboorhood and offers students an education that will last a lifetime. The students will leave young men and women of faith, morals, knowledge, and integrity.

The students are well behaved and there is no use of profanity. 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades are exceptionally good in Sports.

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.
