I agree the school needs a good deep cleaning. It is filled with germs and they have a young kid who does the "cleaning" while classes are in session. Not sure how kids classrooms are getting cleaned like they are supposed to. Toilet paper missing from bathrooms and locks on doors don't exist. I remember the bathrooms were being renovated...they are worse now then before that. But overall my child absolutely LOVES it there and would go nowhere else. Just wish the classes would cater to a left handed child.
This school has a great curriculum and teachers are great, but the school is very dirty and outdated. The principal has been told numerous times about the lack of cleanliness of the bathrooms and school rooms and nothing has been done.
My son Mason just started pre-k here with Miss Joyce and loves his teacher and new friends. He brings home so many fun activities and can't wait to show it to us. I can't help but feel he is in a great environment.
If quality of education is your focus then this school is the best kept secret in Burbank/Oak Lawn. Music, Language, and now Tech subjects are now part of the core curriculum. Athletics and arts are offered as well. Parents could participate more but it seems this has been changing. There is a new feel in this school, seems to be getting younger with more energy. Good to see a catholic school finally catching up with modern times.
This school is a dysfunctional disaster of an institution. I know because I went there. Many of the students are nothing but bullies. That school scarred me for life. What makes matters worse is that the faculty and principal were aware of what went on there and did nothing.
This school is a joke. If you care about your child & his/her education look elsewhere! Please take my advice, the worst thing I did to my children was putting them here. People should get their kids out now before it's too late! The staff is incompetent to say the least.
I read the latest Terra Nova scores in the Principal's newsletter and in the reports prepared by the Testing Company. Congratulations to the teachers for a job well done! This is a great school--that's why it's growing.
This school works tirelessly to educate children well. Let the results speak for themselves. St. Louis de Montfort has grown in enrollment to 270 students for the 2010-2011 school year--its highest enrollment in well over a decade. The school also proudly operates the largest Catholic preschool program in the area. The school has partnered with the Rowland Reading Foundation to offer a "Super Kids" program that trains participating schools to become a National Center for Excellence in Reading. The school offers a Junior Scientists Program, Computer classes taught in a new lab by a college instructor who teaches web page design among much else and Music classes taught by a professional recording artist.

The office staff works very hard to offer personalized appointments to the convenience of prospective parents. Call and make an appointment to see all that the school offers.
Outstanding school! High education, caring staff and the most wonderful teachers. My kids enjoy school and love to go everyday.
I am very pleased with this school! The teachers we have had so far are awesome! My child loves this school that he's sad when the weekend rolls around because he says school is so much fun and can't wait for Mondays. It's amazing to hear that from your child. The principal is also very kind and down to earth.
This is one of the best school's. My daughter loved it there and has been with them since K, and they are always so helpful and work with the parents and students for all problems. Counldn't do it without a school and staff like this!!
Wonderful School!! My kids loved going to school everyday! I can not say enough nice things about the teachers from kindergarten to eigth grade that are wonderful.
Great school. My kids love their school. High education, very friendly, it is all about kids. This school is the only reason we didn't move out of thsi area. The principal is all about the childern.
St. Louis de Montford is a wonderful school. This is my first year here and the teachers and staff have been nothing great mentors for our children. The kids love going there and to their after school program. I am very pleased.
I have been nothing but satisfied with this school. We are a new family and have found the teachers and staff to be helpful and friendly. It is truly about the children here and principal gross and her staff do what is necessary for the children that is what counts!
St. Louis is a great school. The teachers are wonderful. Ms. Foote is dedicated, Mrs. Malloy is a wonder and really helps out. The music and gym teachers are excellent too. The principal does a good job. The pastor is a nice fellow, a little distant, but it works.
This is a wonderful school. The administration, faculty, and staff are all very caring and supportive. Overall there is a sense of warmth and family. There are many extracirricular activities. The administration provides many wonderful programs for our children. There is no doubt that the children are safe and happy. Thanks to the administration for providing our children with a great school!
We transfered our daughter here when our previous school closed, it has been quite an adjustment, but the principal did work with me to make sure she was happy. The prinicpal always answered my calls and arranged meetings with teachers when necessary. We feel this school does give you a family feeling and the priests are always around to say hello and get to know the kids. our family is happy with St. Louis Demontfort school.
We once thought this was a fantastic school. The teacher turnover is very disturbing. I wonder who wrote the excellent remarks? One has to only open their eyes and ears to see what this school is truly like. We will be transferring this summer to a different school - one that has a warm feeling, competent administration, a carried-out discipline program, and accurate communication. We pray for the remaining families.
I have one child that graduated from St. Louis and one that will not. My second child wanted to transfer to another school because most my childs friends and teachers had left or quit for no other reason than the principal. What was once a welcoming Catholic learning environment that prided having top caliber teachers had become unrecognizable.
