I am amazed everyday at how much my son has learned at St. Doms. He is a 3 year old currently attending 2 half days per week. I was nervous about sending him to preschool at 3 years old, but I am so glad that we did. He has learned not only how to identify letters and numbers, but he has come a long way in developing good social skills. The teachers and staff are amazing. It is clear they all love each of the children on their care. I would highly recommend St. Domitilla to anyone in the area.

St. Domitilla School offers a quality education in a Christian environment. Our family has had two generations educated at this school and we continue to support St. Domitilla's thru fundraising and volunteerism. Go Blazers!

Our new Pastor Father Tim is going to make a great school even better. He is helping us by reducing the tuition to only paying $500. for each child after. No where has this ever been done. St. Domitilla has high standards produces well prepared students for our future. This is the only place you should put your child.

My daughter attends St. Dom's and she loves it. I love it. Everyone there is wonderful. I wish that I could leave her there until she graduates but times are very hard now and I'm afraid she won't be there next school year and that is breaking my heart because she loves it there and I feel safe knowing she is at the best school around.

I graduated from St. Domitilla and I must say that it is great in all areas. I would say this includes academics, athletics, and religion. The faculty, staff, and students are great. I think academic excellence is what makes St. Domitilla stand out as a great school. Ms. Weber, the 8th Grade teacher, has amazing enthusiasm with her students. Some of the things I learned at a high school level were not as interesting and inspiring as when Ms. Weber taught it. Ms. Sypin is an excellent leader of the school community. St. Domitilla is the perfect choice for an elementary school.

Our son started kindergarten at St Domatilla's this past fall. Since we are new to the area, my wife and I didn't know exactly what to expect from the school. It was less expensive than nearby Timothy Christian, but we wondered how good the teachers would be. How involved are the other parents? How well behaved are the kids? Well, from everything we've seen so far this year, it's a great little school on all counts. We have been making new friends with nice fellow parents. It really feels like a cohesive, caring community. Our son loves the kindergarten teacher, and he's learning much faster than I remember at that age. A nice bonus is kids in the older grades know the names of the youngters and really look out for them.

My child just graduated Kindergarten at St. Doms. I am so pleased with the strides that they have taken to ensure that every student understands what God means to everyone of one of us. I couldn't ask for a better school. Thank you Ms. Sypin and Mrs Mckee for a wonderful year and many more too come.

I have had students in St. Domitilla continually since 1989. I have seen many changes, issues and situation. With the changing world we face on a day to day basis St. Domitilla has made great strides to keep up with the times but never losing site of God, children and education. If more people would take advantage of the open door policy and talk to each other they would find St. Domitilla an oasis. The office staff Mrs. Affetto goes way above and beyond what a school secretary should do. I have seen good principals and alwful principals but what we have now in Miss Maryclaire Sypin is the best of the best. Miss Sypin came to St. Domitilla at a very hard time and saved our school and our children. If things are not what you like go have a conversation don't abandon ship.Proudly we are St. Domitilla Family forever

I am a parent with two children attending St. Domitilla. The staff, the parents, and the students make this environment wonderful. The school has so many wonderful academic programs and extracurricular activities. Parents and staff are very involved in the students which makes the environment very family orientated. The principal is extremely involved with the betterment of the school. My children have excelled and are prepared for high school.

My daughter is in kindergarten and completing the first quarter. The curriculum is good, but I did expect more hands on assistance in a private school setting. The school could use more supervision during recess, because quite of bit of minor fights occur. Would like to see a more controlled environment, that is why I selected the private school option.

This is great school. The academic program is excellent. They reinforce what I am teaching my daughter at home. I started her on small 3 letter words when she was in pre-school. When she started here for Kindergarten they reinforced what she already knew. My daughter is reading on a 2nd grade level and she's only 5. Her class size is 10, which gives the teacher more one on one time with each student.

I am a former Chicago Public School teacher and administrator. I am also a product of the public school system. I never thought I would enroll my child in Catholic School until I saw first-hand the enourmous benefits of a religious education environment. My child has made me proud of our decision to choose the parroquial education program in our suburban area. I have more children who are school age, or soon will be, and I can see no flaws in the education opportunities offered at St. Domitilla. Like any other educational institution, there are teachers within the school who can benefit from renewing and changing their instructional practices to be current with the times. But other than that, the highly experienced teachers at St. Domitilla make the school a truly hidden gem in the northwest suburbs of Hillside and Berkeley community. Your child will love this school! Visit it today.

I am a past student and have noticed a great change (good and bad) but that will occur with any school over the years. Both my children attend school there and have had wonderful teachers so far (up to 4th grade). The teachers are very understanding. The school could use some more supervision when the children are out for recess - my child has complained about being picked on and nothing has ever been done about it.

This school provides a safe and secure learning environment. Also, this is a great school for the above average child, but the average student can fall behind and get overlooked. Additionally, it lacks enthusiasm from the teachers that can inspire the average student to excel.
