I went here. I went here from age five to age thirteen. It was horrifying. The academic standard is terrible. The bullying culture is encouraged. My experience at this school largely contributed to my struggles with depression in early adolescence. The irresponsible track system and terrible teaching the reason I still struggle with math as a young adult. My little sister--my bright, happy, friendly little sister--was recently pulled out of this school because of intense bullying and faculty apathy. If you want your child to mingle only with the whitest and blandest America possible, participate in nothing but sub-par sports, be shamed for having interests like reading, math, or art, have a political agenda pushed on them from a young age, receive a less than satisfactory education, be targeted by their teachers, and be asked to simply "ignore" or "play nice with" their tormentors (especially when their tormentors make up four of the sixteen people in the room) despite consistent evidence of a serious bullying problem, than by ALL means, send your child here. If that's less than palatable to you, I suggest the public option.
Our son attends Saint Alexander and it is truly like no other school around - a small family enviroment with teachers who truly care. Each child receives the personal attention they need to ensure they are confident and successful. I can't imagine sending my children anywhere else!
A very caring and nurturing school environment. The academic curriculum is strong and cohesive, with an emphasis on our Catholic faith. All the teachers and staff give the students the individual attention needed for both academics and social well being. A great place to learn and grow.
I definitely will recommend this school to anyone looking for a great education with a strong Catholic Faith behind it. The class room sizes are perfect, and the one on one attention your child receives from his/her teacher is by far the best. My son is in kdg I plan on being there till he graduates 8th grade with his brother 3 years younger to follow. St Alexander s School in Villa Park is so certain that you will love their school and the curriculum that they are offering lower tuition to all new families who enroll. Now that s worth trying. With the cost of education no a days sky rocketing it is a great thing that a school can stand behind their word and offer a excellent education, more one on one attention for your child at a affordable rate!
You will never go wrong by sending your child to St. Alexander Catholic School. My daughters love it! They actually are dissapointed to leave at the end of the day.
