    "I started my son in Montessori & private schools because I thought he would reach his full potential in unconventional settings. However, at both schools his "behavior" was cause for alarm and so I pulled him out before they could kick him out. Enter McCleery. My son was off to a good start but he started to have problems again - long story short, he was eventually diagnosed ADHD and needed a 504 plan. McCleery teachers and staff were patient and willing to work with me through this process. He started second half of 1st grade with Ms. Larson. She was great in helping with his transition to a new school. 2nd grade Ms Volkert - tough but fair. 3rd grade Ms Cofer, an absolute angel to my child. 4th grade Mr Knapp, just the right combination of discipline, structure and compassion my son needed. The principle Ms Esposito is very helpful and always answered my concerns. Ms Ortiz the social worker has been extremely patient with my son and I, working with him to help him develop the necessary skills he needs to be successful. Maybe this school doesn't rank high in testing, but if you want a school that cares about your child as much as you do, this is the school."

    "My daughter is a 1st grader at McCleery and as a child I attended as well. My daughter loves going to school. As a kindergartner last year she had Mrs. Patel as her teacher. Mrs.Patel is a creative and passionate teacher my daughter absolutely LOVED her style of teaching and so did I. Mrs. Patel is an AWESOME teacher and I'm glad she's McCleerys own!!!!!"

    "I would like to say that when my daughter started first grade she was only able to read small words like cat and dog. When she started bring home a different book everyday that had to be read 3 times it was frustrating at first but now she can read at a level that a second grader can. Other schools in dist 129 do not have their children read daily. Thank you McCleery for making our students read everyday."

    "I have to admit, I was more frightened than my 1st grader, going into a new school. McCleery makes sure to pair age groups whether it be at lunch or recess. Bullying is NOT tolerated at the school. The principal, Cherie Esposito, is a top notch, hands on principal. I hope we never lose her. She is always open to positive changes and suggestions. Parent involement is strongly encouraged. The teachers are dedicated as we learned with my son's 1st grade teacher. McCleery made this mom happy that we choose a spirited learning environment for our son!"

    "The staff and students at this school are the most accepting group of people I have ever encountered. The teachers want their students to succeed, and they do everything in their power to help them reach their goals. It was the greatest environment to work in and I am grateful to have had to opportunity to be apart of it."
