    "I decided on CGS after much research and many visits to the "usual suspects" of top tier schools in Chicago. I was looking for a school where my son would find knowledge through a strong curriculum. A place that had technology, but didn't use it as a crutch. A school that would nurture my child s curiosity and not just teach him to remember a bunch of facts. And, teachers who would encourage him to freely ask, challenge, and explore in his quest for learning thus encouraging him to develop the personal stamina to ultimately succeed. We've been at CGS for 2 years and we LOVE it. It s an amazing school with a wonderful community of families and strong leadership. Daily, I learn something new from my child - something that he brings from school into life: whether it's the Ottoman invasion of Constantinople or the difference between ionic & covalent bonds... every day builds on the next. Ultimately I'm seeing my son prosper in an academically rigorous and socially supportive school that I believe is laying the foundation for a successful and fulfilling future."

    "I have lived all over the country and I have never experienced a school with such a solid academic commitment balanced with art and physical education every day. The teachers are so intelligent and believe in the kids' abilities to meet the high academic standards. The director is also one of the best teachers in the school. There are a great selection of after school clubs including computer programming, swimming and Latin club. My daughter is excited to go to school every morning and she is not only learning so much, she is learning how to study and manage her time. I highly recommend CGS."

    "My kids used to go here and in recently retelling stories to others, I realize how bad this place is. If you have a ton of money and want to be coddled, you will LOVE it! However, my kids were subjected to bullying (by the director, not just fellow students) and berating. Their scores for reading were in the 20th percentile and thankfully they have improved at public school since pulling them. There is no board or accountability and they routinely take kids kicked out of other schools (because money is still green, right?) for behavior or other issues. Please move on and don't be fooled by the sales and the hype. Your kids are better off in a public school. I started out LOVING this place and invested THOUSANDS of dollars here (have more than one child) and really regret our time here."

    "My daughter, who is generally shy and who we would not categorize as brilliant, is in JK (junior kindergarten) and was in preschool half days last year. To give you a sense of her personality, she's a typical 4 year old girl; she cares a ton more about princesses and Barbie than puzzles, and she is quiet in class. She came home this week and out of the blue explained to us how chlorophyll works in plants and how water evaporates in the atmosphere and creates clouds. The art projects are fantastic, and the art projects always relate to what the class is learning. She has a bunch of good friends from the school, even in different grades. All of the schoolchildren, regardless of their age, seem to be all around good kids. All in all, a great experience."

    "Chicago Grammar School is outstanding. In the three years my son has attended, the school has moved forward and each change has added to the quality of the facility and educational experience. The curriculum is the best offered by any private or public school in Chicago (in my opinion and that of educators I consulted). The kids absorb the content of this amazing curriculum from wonderful teachers who subdivide the already small classes by ability so that each child is challenged and can succeed on his or her level -- whether that is far above, at, or below grade level. Despite the finely tuned teaching and testing by ability level, the kids study and play together across age groups and grades. As my son says, he knows everyone in the school. The comment from 2009 regarding the principal only teaching his son's grade is not accurate now, and has not been at least for the past 3 years. Phillip Jackson is an amazing educator who teaches multiple grades and subjects each year. The kids love him and love every subject he teaches. Communication from and to the teachers and administrators is constant (through the intellishare web site) and easy (through e-mail or a phone call)."
