I've had three of my four kids attend Naper. They all love going to school here. It's small, just two classes per grade, so the teachers are accessible and the relationships are genuine. We've been at other public and private schools in CT, OH, and another district in IL, and by far this is our best experience with elementary school. Parents are very involved. The principal is engaged. She knows every one of her kids and is responsive. She has chosen a great staff. There is also a group of moms who gather to pray for the school and staff every week, the icing on the cake!

Great School!! Reminds me of the school I attended. Ms. Bibby is awesome! Our daughter loves going to school each morning and has a smile on her face at the end of the school day!

I love this school. They know my son very well and not for the bad reasons. I get phone calls when hes not at school making sure i am aware. The secretary office assistant Mary Pat , is so so so wonderful. She is so organized and told me about scholarships i can apply for. My husband had lost his job and she made me aware of everything I could qualify for. Shes a blessing and though I am not as familiar with the other office staff, everyone has been nothing but supportive , motivating and patient. Fortunately my husband works now and we didnt need any of the states help. But when things get tough it is important to have someone who can help you along the way.

Naper Elementary is always willing and caring when it comes to helping families in need. They have been proactive in assisting parents with child assistance in regards to medical/dental needs and continually grow their community and parent involvement. The teachers and staff are great.

Naper School is an amazing school! Great kids, great teachers, and excellent skills are taught. Although the principle is not the best, the teachers bring all that they can to help our kids. The staff members work with the kids in subjects they need help in, and challenage them when they are ahead. I recommend this school to any parent. This school is amazing and parents if you are looking to transfer your child, i consider Naper Elementary School. I am a recent student from Naper, and i know the staff put all their effort in helping the kids strive for accuracy.

I have to disagree with the most recent posts. The Principal has taken the time to get to know my children, their difficulties and their strengths. She is constantly assisting me with problem solving. All of the teachers work together to get the best fit for your child and teacher in subsequent years. All of the teachers have been good at reading my children's strengths and weaknesses and working to improve both. I love the school and the atmosphere. My children have also experienced bullying and I worked with the Principal and staff to put an end to it. I definitely would recommend this school. It is a great, small community that helps your children grow and develop academically and socially.

I agree whole heartedly that the Principal leaves alot to be desired. She talks a good game, but does not walk the walk. She is all smiles, but you do not want to cross her. Change is a very difficult concept for her.

I agree with the last post. This school is highly over-rated. The principal seems unprofessional and incompetant. A few of the teachers are wonderful though.

I concur wholeheartedly with the last post. Some of the teachers are fantastic (in that we have been lucky), but the other staff and esp. the principal leave much to be desired. She takes no time to get to know your child, or to consult with the teacher before making judgments. My child was being bullied and the principal indicated to my child that she did not believe it. My child was devastated. Let me say that this is a very small school. Just 250 kids, so there is no excuse for the Principal to not take the time to handle these things. She just doesnt care. Like the previous poster indicated, the parents get no support whatsoever.

I was initially impressed with Naper School in the early stages of my child's education. The K & 1st grade program is very impressive; however the remaining grades have left a lot to be desired. I feel that there aren t enough teachers to go around. In addition to the teachers, the extra curricular teachers are also not up to par. I feel that many adults at this school need to take a refresher course in patience...after all they are dealing with children. I would also like to comment on the Principal. I am, and have been extremely disappointed with this individual. Parents are offered absolutely no support at all. The overall impression that Naper School has left on me hasn't been a favorable one.

Great school in a great community! The parent involvement level is a great indicator to both the school administration and the community that we care. The staff at this school is excellent. This is the elementary school to go to. Overall size is just right for younger students [grades K-5}.

Naper school isn't as nice as it used to be. I was excited that my daughter would be attending the school, but I have been unimpressed with the curriculum and the quality of the teachers.
