This school provides a great quality education. My three kids are currently enrolled and are all doing extremely well. Critics of when test scores (Terra Nova) reports are given to parents should note that the Archdioces of Chicago determines when that test is taken and scores are then processed by the testing company. I find the teachers to be of high caliber and for the most part very invested in the learning and development of the children. Not every teacher is perfect, nor are the students. I find the over the top ciriticism here cowardly and mean spirited.
I have several kids at this school, the oldest has been there for 5 years. St. Annies has given my children a strong spiritual foundation, & the curriculum is always challenging which is important for children. 95% of the staff is great, if there's ever an issue it needs to be brought to the attn of Father Alloy and/or the principal and asst. principal, all of which have resolved my issue's promptly. They take bullying very seriously, they are constantly raising funds for the homeless or for disaster relief, their hearts are in the right place. There have been some teachers that have taught too long and lost their ability to connect with children and shouldn't be teaching anymore, but thankfully that person is leaving the school at the end of this year. Every school has a small handful of those, it isn't just St. Annies. Overall I'm very satisfied with this school.
I am a parent who's child is currently attending St. Anastasia School. I am happy with the teachers attention to covering the import concepts and lessons for their Catholic education, but in many others areas they fall short. The teachers and their curriculum lack preparation and attention to preparing students for the Terra Nova standardized tests. And interesting enough in the past the standardized scores are returned a week or two before the school year is over. There does not appear to be any effort by the teachers or staff to provide a follow-up or review with students on how they fared against their peers. By the end of the school year the parents don't have or limited opportunity to coordinate a parent-teacher conference to meet and discuss their child's performance. These circumstances are an unfortunate oversight and are common place the last few years most likely by the lack of school leadership.
I am a curently student who went to st anaststia an this is one of the worst school I'v been to in my life the teachers are rude and they don't want to help fix problem they make them. The students are not showed the correct way to treat each other and they would do anything in their power to get me out of their school
Student to teacher ratio has increased over the years and compromised 1:1 academic attention. Seems there's a lack of leadership and cohesiveness among teachers. About half the faculty should take lessons from experienced teachers who really seem understand how to interact with students, specifically middle school grades.
St. Anastasia School is a fantastic place to send your children! Both of my kids went to school there and received an excellent education. They were well prepared for high school both academically and socially. They have a sound moral and spiritual foundation because of attending this fine school and parish.
St. Anastasia School prepares students for future success. The Jr. High ability tracks their students for the maximum learning potential. St. Anastasia offers early morning high school prep courses in the Foundations of Physics and Writing Methodology. The Princial and Assistant Principal work well as a team and help foster an environment conducive for learning.
I was a student at this school and now I am a teacher.....our faculty and staff put everything they have and more into educating the children of our school. I can personally say I love going to work....the teachers, students, parents and families are wonderful to work with. I am so blessed!
Academic excellence, dedicated and innovative teachers, many extracurricular activities
St. Anastasia School has provided an excellent education to our son. He feels very comfortable with all of the teachers and has a strong group of friends. Everyone is welcoming and friendly. I am very happy that I chose this school.
St. Anastasia Catholic School has given our three children a fine education, a sound moral foundation, confidence in themselves and a sense of caring abut their fellow students and community. Initially we were impressed by the quality of the older students. These children were good role models for our young children. Over the course of our years there we've seen many families thrive in the community of St. Anastasia. I would recommend that you consider St. Anastasia for your family.
This school was disappointing to our family. Some of the teachers were spectacular-namely Mrs. Burgos, but it doesn't make up for the below standard teachers. Overall, I would say this school should be chosen only if you have no other options for schooling.
St. Anastasia has been the best choice for our child. Our child has recieved an excellent Catholic based education. The parent involvement also is something to write about. It's refreshing to see how many parents are as involved in their children's lives as we are. Great job faculty & staff.
We have been at St. Anastasia for 2 years now. Our children are receiving an excellent education - both intellectual and spiritual. They are very happy in school.
St. Anastasia is giving my kindergartener a solid foundation in academics, music, art, fitness, moral beliefs and values, and character. My child has a very caring and knowledgeable teacher and teacher's aide that foster an incredible learning environment for each student in the class.
I think this is a great school. The teachers are dedicated and it provides a solid academic and spiritual foundation for my child. They work hard to continue to maintain high standards and the children are very polite and bright. I give it high marks.
This school was disappointing at best. It was seriously lacking in teachers fostering an environment of learning and love. My children attended the school for 1 year and we experieced nothing but problems. We had hoped for more cooperation from the principal, but were only met with acerbity and hostility. I would not recommend this school for someone looking for a Christ centered school.
St. Anastasia is a great school. All of the teachers and staff are very caring and into the kids. I love this school. I [have a] little girl in kindergarden this year and she is doing so well. My brother was also a student at this school and his grades were outstanding, my own thoughts is because of the teacher and staff, because they care about the students.
