Our Lady of Victory
We have two children enrolled at Our Lady of Victory (OLV) since 2006. The educational experience has been wonderful! Our girls have participated in hands-on science experiments and accelerated reading programs. The Science innovation lab, iPad and computer lab are favorites for the kids! Each classroom has iPads and an Apple TV or Whiteboard. The faculty is experienced and the teachers create a safe and enriching learning environment. The girls attend weekly all school mass where the classes take turns doing the readings and petitions. Monthly, the children participate in the Sunday mass. There is a wonderful band program and choir, as well as after school programs such as sports, chess, art and theater classes. The Girl and Boy Scout program is also very active. The community gets together for our Christmas Bazaar, Super bowl Sunday, St Patrick’s Day Party, Vender Blender and many other activities. The OLV family is very welcoming and extends far outside of the school boundaries!

I have three children at Cambridge. One has graduated and another graduates this year and the other is in the grammar school. They teach one to two grade levels ahead and my children consistently test two to three grade levels ahead on standardized tests in math, language arts, and reading comprehension. I especially love the parental community. They are very supportive and close knit like a family. The teachers are passionate about learning. The administration supports the effort to constantly reevaluate the school's ability to fulfill its mission statement. The Christian emphasis helps to maintain a strong moral environment. Chicago needs more schools like this. These students are going to the best selective enrollment high schools, competing and winning in academic competitions, and they are producing very cordial and intelligent students. I love this school.

I have been at Cambridge for five years. Prior to selecting Cambridge, I visited various schools. This school has a solid foundation. The leadership is strong. The teachers demonstrate great patience and excellence. Students are attentive and excited about the learning. My child came to the school very shy. She has had to stand before her class and present research projects, speak at assemblies, and participate in various programs. She is now confident, poised, and far more vocal. Her self-esteem is higher as a result of the environment at Cambridge. I could not have chosen a better environment. I see where their graduates are going to high school and it makes me even more impressed. I am thankful to Mr. Barber for founding the school. I am thankful to the PreK, K, 1st and 2nd grade teachers for their efforts. I highly recommend this place for your child.

This is my son's 1st school experience. We felt the love and care from his teacher from the minute we walked into the classroom for a visit. The teacher's assistant even felt more like family that someone "working" for the school. We have been blessed this 1st year and my son has grown leaps and bounds educationally and in his appreciation and knowledge of God. The bible teacher was exceptional in helping him (at age 4) embrace memorizing scripture and understanding (for his age) how to see God in everyday life! These aspects have been edifying for our whole family!

St Constance School
St. Constance is a wonderful school - it has dedicated teachers and staff who are 100% involved in giving the kids the tools they need to succeed. I have 2 kids going there now and they enjoy school and participating in the school band, the sports teams and structured after school enrichment programs 4 days a week. the students continue to acheive above average test scores and are taught the importance of serving the community through volunteerism.

The Gardner School
Our youngest son, age 3, has been attending for a month. He has made noticeable improvements in his fine motor skills such as tracing lines (letters, shapes, numbers), using spoon and fork, and putting on/taking off his shoes. Everything is high quality: staff, environment, curriculum, communication. Moving him from his previous day care to Gardner School has been the best decision we had made for him.

Cambridge is an island of excellence in a sea of mediocrity! We were looking for a school that would give our child a rigorous academic education as well as a strong spiritual education. Cambridge was the only school which had that winning combination. It's not perfect (and in our experience no school is), but the staff work hard and the students at this school are happy.

We enrolled our son as soon as the West Loop school opened and will always cherish our experience there. The director and especially his teacher, Miss. Jessica, created an environment of love and respect among the children. His development both emotionally and intellectually has set him far ahead of his peers now that we have relocated. Thank You TGS!

St Thomas the Apostle Elementary
This is a Catholic school that has a feeling of home. There are small class sizes and wonderful teachers to boot. This school has a since of community with the parish and all its neighbors. I have three children that attend this school and they love it! We are the best Catholic school in Hyde Park come take a look.

Cambridge teaches 1-2 grade levels ahead. When my children moved to the next grade at another school, they were being taught material that they had already learned at Cambridge. This works for me. My 6th grader had an ACT composite score of 16!!
