    "CBECC is an excellent gem of a school with the great combination of Montessori and Catholic educational philosophies. Our two children are enthusiastic and motivated to learn. Our son is in the 6-9 yr. old room where he is reading and doing math every day. He works on maps and learns about different science experiments. Our daughter is in the 3-5 yr. old room where she draws, paints and loves to play with all of her friends. Also the school has a wonderful outdoor space with a garden and playground that the children enjoy and help to maintain. Did I mention it is also affordable compared to other Montessori or Catholic schools in the Lincoln Park area?"

    "Our son attended the toddler/parent class here, and is now in the preschool two days a week. We are very, very happy with this school. We believe the best of Montessori is present at this school, and also appreciate the Catholic education. Our son is free to pursue his interests, and is growing in leaps and bounds. His vocabulary is improving, as are his number and logic skills, and he's only three. A wonderful preschool."

    "Cardinal Bernadin has been a God-send for our family. We came to Chicago with a disengaged, scared and fragile 7 year old that needed special attention. This school embraced him, enlighten us of his special needs, addressed them in the classroom, and I am glad to say he is now a thriving 6th grader in a "traditional" classroom. His younger brother is now attending Cardinal Bernardin for his 4th year and is quite opposite academically. He is smart, confident, and probably in some ways gifted. He is able to move ahead and thrive in this environment that I'm sure would not be available to him in most schools. Cardinal Bernardin is truly diverse - racially, financially and academically - and meets the needs of all children, whether they are gifted or specially challenged. Both of our children were able and continue to excel far beyond our expectations in most part due to the patient, loving, experienced and understanding staff of this school. Felicia Fuller"

    "Please note that CBECC is not a "Catholic" school, per se. I'd add this to my earlier review, CBECC is truly a Montessori school in the truest sense. Maria Montessori founded the Montessori program for poor children with learning differences. We have had experiences with almost all of the Montessori schools in metro Chicago, and none of them seem to have a genuinely diverse student population other than CBECC. All that we toured were predominantly white, upper middle class children with average to above average levels of academic achievement. CBECC welcomes and embraces children from all economic strata and learning levels. We can't say enough good things about CBECC."

    "My 6 year old son has attended CBECC since he was 18 months old starting in the mom/toddler class, transition class, preschool and now kindergarten. We feel so fortunate to be a part of this montessori community of teachers, parents, and students. My son loves the search for knowledge and information which has been cultivated by the most patient and understanding teachers I've known. He is the one dragging me out the door in the morning so he can get to school early to start his next work. He honestly loves school and I feel that the teachers honestly care about each and everyone of their students. I highly recommend CBECC."
