School Official Point of View

This school is not only a family based Christian school, it's got a great value system, teaches children respect for themselves and others. DEFINITELY worth you stopping by and considering this for your children from their Early Childhood Center at age 3 to their full day kindergarten and through 8th grade.

Outstanding school. Warm, loving, energetic community of teachers, administrators, parents, and students. Full day 3K, 4K and kindergarten with on-site after school care for working families. Lovely, safe, well-maintained campus. Amazing, talented, big-hearted teachers that give lots of individual attention to each student. Spirited and engaging athletic program. Beautiful faith formation with real attention paid to ethics and good behavior for all students. Academically and developmentally, St. Al's gives kids a big head start on high school and beyond -- we see it year after year in the graduates. Our family has been here seven years now, and the community has been amazing for us. Just an excellent school that gives back everything you put into it and so much more.

I cant possibly even summarize what a great school this is. The students are educated in a safe, Christian, drug free environment with teachers and staff who deeply care about the students. Academic scores are off the charts, its a Blue Ribbon school of excellence, they have a science program that is phenomenal. There are so many sports and activities after school. Their art program is AMAZING, and dont miss their spring musical run by the music teacher Mrs. Duncan, you would think your seeing a broadway show not a middle school production. I have an older son who went there who is now in medical school, all of his classmates excelled over the public school kids. My two younger girls currently attend St.Als and love the school to pieces, that is like a second home for them. The class sizes are just perfect, children get individual attention. They have a very involved PARENT SCHOOL ASSOCIATION, with wonderful parents doing wonderful things for the children. Trust the positive reviews posted here and invest in St. Alphonsus, even if you have to sacrifice something financially. You will reap your rewards a million times over and be so grateful that you did.

This school is a gem. Tucked in a residential area away from any busy roads, the school provides safe and quiet environment. The campus grounds include a large grassy field, vegetable garden and a playground. The school provides a small teacher to student ratio with plenty individual attention. My two children thrive here.

My son is with St.Als for an year. We are so happy with the progress. Teacher and Pricipal are so dedicated and caring. Good religious educuation and they force discipline.I will post more after an year.

St. Al has made some wonderful changes in the past two years and the families are absolutely terrific. My child is happy and enjoys tremendous care and attention due to smaller class sizes. The teachers are dedicated and communicative. Academically they have implemented a S.T.E.A.M. program and the students will be well prepared to attend the highly ranked Hersey, Prospect, Wheeling or Viator high schools. Instilling a sense of morals, service and community is important and our child has thrived in this wonderful environment.

I have 3 children enrolled at St. Alphonsus Liguori and am very pleased with their academic progress, the teachers and their peer group. I chose to send my children to St. Alphonsus because of their Blue Ribbon standing. School academics is number one on my priority list as well as values and character building. My children are excited about going to school and are suitably challenged by the lessons and projects their teachers have put great effort and thought in planning. I am very impressed by the teachers' creativity and dedication. The parental involvement is inspirational and we share the same values. It's a nice community atmosphere. A lot of great childhood memories are being formed here along with great friendships. The school is also dedicated to instilling a sense of service to others whether it's recycling, food pantry collections or students visiting a nursing home. I know at St. Alphonsus my children are being well formed and well educated.

We moved from out-of-state two years ago and enrolled our two children at Saint Alphonsus after looking at several Catholic schools in the Northwest Suburbs. What we liked most about Saint Alphonsus was it's challenging academic programs, which have resulted in the school being awarded the Blue Ribbon of excellence. We also loved the welcoming atmosphere. Both children are excelling academically and reading well above grade level. I would highly recommend Saint Alphonsus.
