    "Impressed and thankful for the hands on attention that my son receives. The smaller class sizes and the amazing leadership of the Principal and the driven teachers to go above and beyond for each student is evident daily. A very pleased parent"

    "Agree 100% with the parent who posted April 20, 2011. "Narrow minded, provincial...does nothing to challenge gifted students...children come home each day with folders of fill-in-the-blank type assignments." The curriculum offers very little authenticity or room for creativity and is heavy on rote learning."

    "I am very disappointed in this school. I find that it reflects the personality of the greater community: narrow minded, provincial, and cliquish. If one could give half stars, I would actually rate it a 2 and 1/2 instead of 3. The school does nothing to challenge gifted students and has almost no after school programs. It is a pity, because a school like this with a relatively low student/teacher ratio could offer a much more progressive education. My children come home each day with folders full of almost nothing but fill-in-the-blank type assignments. I had read an article in Chicago Parent magazine that rated the school as one of the best in the county (McHenry). I am very curious about their methodology. If I recall correctly, parental involvement was heavily weighted but the only evidence of this I have witnessed is parental OVER-involvement in sports!"

    "I love this school because of the relationship between the teachers and the childrean and parents. It is a very close knit family! The teachers and staff are very caring. Beacuse of this the children are receiving a top notch education."

    "I cannot say enough great things about Algonquin Road School. Great Superintendent, great Principal, great teachers and other support staff! I love everything about this school! We are going to add on to our home and remodel because there is no way we will be moving out of this school district!"
