Do not send your child to this school. Teachers could not care less if the child is learning or not. When bullying issues arose, absolutely nothing was done, in fact some (not all) teachers go out of their way to belittle children who are already at risk for bullying. Every single teachers played favorites and also had least favorites as well. The education is lacking at best and I was extremely behind when I entered public middle school. I am now in college and want to help save parents their money. But to be fair, the school was enjoyable and bullying was never an issue until the new administration (defrisco) took over. Also the band program with Mr. Case (don't know if he's still there or not) could not have been better. Save yourself the ten thousand dollars a year and send your kid anywhere else.
This school is an excellent academic and social experience for all children. The school is exceptionally diverse with families from many socioeconomic backgrounds. The administration and faculty are fantastic! You can look all over Chicagoland and not find a more complete school for your child.
My husband and I have been thrilled with the quality of education our children receive through St. Hubert School. The school atmosphere is truly welcoming and has the feeling of a family providing a safe and nurturing environment for all students. The academic program is truly rigorous and we have been so pleased with our children s academic growth and increase in test scores year after year. We have no doubt they will be well prepared when they enter high school and beyond with the strong foundation they are receiving at St. Hubert. Beyond academics, the teachers, administration, and staff truly instill strong moral values and foster a strong sense of faith creating a positive environment for learning. Our children look forward to coming to school each day and have a true love of learning thanks to the enthusiasm, creativity, and dedication of the teaching staff.
St Hubert School is a hidden gem in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago! The staff reflects a dedicated group of professionals committed to educating the whole child...academically, spiritually, and emotionally. Standardized test scores continue to rise and reflect a rigorous curriculum resulting from ongoing professional growth and staff development. The parent community works hand in hand with the teachers and staff in a true partnership that benefits the students. Students thrive at the school because of the nurturing staff, responsive Administration, and supportive parents. This is an established school that continues to thrive despite the challenging economic times. The St. Hubert School community can't be beat!
My children have been at St. Huberts for six years now.We came from one of Schaumburg's public schools. We have been very happy and impressed with the staff and student acedemics. The values that are implemented there on a daily basis are outstanding. It's a very family friendly school. We toured many schools when moving from the public school. I would highly recommend looking into St. Huberts if looking in this area. You won't be disappointed.
My husband and I were so happy when we found St Hubert. This is our 2nd year ad our views have changed! Our son has been bullied for both years by the same child and nothing has been done. They have talked to both my son and the other child. This child has been caught in lie after lie. Our son's version has never changed once! Our son has been punched, shoved to the ground, sat on, the list keeps going. We have talk to the principle and asst principle and nothing has been done. The school has a ZERO tolerence policy that every child and parent must sign. This is simply not enforced. The bulling that goes on is school wide at every grade level. I hear the same thing from many parents. It was even suggested to my husband and I that we contact the other childs parents ourselves to get the bulling to stop. This is not the 1950's!! and this child is not Opie! WHY would we contact his parents and why should we have to do the principles job!!! Worthless administrative staff from top to bottom - even the office is filled with crabs!!! As new parents at the school there was very little information given. If you are looking for a new school keep looking - we are!!!
I am an alumni of St. Hubert School. When looking for a school for our children, my husband and I had to look no further than the community that I grew up in. Our children are able to have free discussion on faith and religion; apply themselves in core curriculum driven classes that allow for differentiated instruction; attend extensive art, music, physical education, and language classes regularly; and become involved in many extracurricular activities such as sports, chess, drawing, and band - all while being picked up right on the corner of our street. Moreover, we are able to show our children what it is like to be part of more than a school it s a community. My husband and I are so happy that we gave our children this amazing gift that will allow them to go on to become thoughtful, driven individuals in society. I would recommend that anyone within the area obtain information on St. Hubert School and consider this choice for their children.
Higher academic standards but not satisfied overall, my child's experience is not good & this affected his grades. This school have left a bad taste in my mouth from our personal experience, maybe cuz we expected more from this school.
I have a nephew who attends the school and just recently the dad reported a bullying incident. My nephew received a bruise from another kid and based on the school bully policy, it seems that the principle is not taking this seriously since no actual disciplinary action has been taken. The bullying has extended to the bus as well.
I wanted to send a message to all the "Little Troopers" and the teacher staff for their generosity and Christmas cards that they filled out for me to deliver to the Veteran Hospital's in Chicago over the Christmas Holiday Season. They are held in high regard for their teaching skills, and the fact that they have made it possible for veterans to get Christmas cards from the entire school body to wish hospitalized veterans from all 3 hospital locations a Merry Christmas, was a sight to see, with so many veterans with tears in their eyes, as they took the time to read the thoughts from 3rd through 8th grade students.

We came here from a different Catholic school. From a school where my some was miserable to one that my son actually enjoys coming go! The education is phenomenal and my son is at least one year ahead of the other kids in neighborhood. Teachers are caring and understand kids are all different. Yes there is religion, but NOT radically so, and they do recognize other faiths which is something I know SCS down the street will not. If yo are considering a private or Catholic school, you should really consider this one! tuition is about the same as SCS we have lots more extra curicular activities, they don't brainwash her and academically Huberts is just as good as SCS. SCS has had many internal problems lately with their staff. Please look into that before you send your children there.
One of the best schools around. Excellent in education, safety, and structure.
St. Hubert Elementary School is known for its enthusiastic teachers, personal approach, care and consideration of the student and their well being. The academic programs are excellent and prepare the student well for their junior and High School course experiences. Parents are welcomed and their views are considered. The population is diverse as this community is one of the highest diversity communities in the Northwest Suburbs. The Pastor of the Church and the new Principal takes great pride in educational success and as a result, this school has a significant number of students that matriculate to Universities and Colleges throughout the Midwest. The religious foundation is excellent, instilling values in students that attract parents and students representing a diversity of religions as well as Catholics. This speaks volumes about the attractiveness of the School, Instruction, instructors and course content and materials. Parent involvement is encouraged.
This is a great school with caring teachers, a solid academic structure and filled with religious training.
What a great place to learn! St. Hubert provides a nurturing environment and a great education. My children are both one to two years ahead of the children in our neighborhood who attend other schools. They love the teachers because the teachers go the extra mile, always providing learning experiences that enhance their textbook lessons. It is definitely worth the 20 minute ride to have my children WANT to go to school. I would definitely recommend St. Hubert to any family (Catholic or not) that wants a quality education for their child(ren). Many of the parents are at the school helping out constantly lending a real family feel to the school. I wish I could have attended St. Hubert as a child. GO KNIGHTS!
St. Hubert is fortunate to have large school enrollment with small school feeling. Students receive benefits of extra activities and interests with the increased involvement. Best of all, there is a spirit here that is warm, respectful, and trusting. I would recommend this school among any around for both its academics and religious/spiritual growth. I have to travel 20 minutes to bring my children there and I wouldn't trade it for anything! --Keep up the good work St. Hubert teachers and staff--and students!
