    "We have hit the jackpot with this school for our 4 and 5 year old. Awesome, caring teachers and a principal who truly cares about educating our youth and instilling a great moral foundation. I could not recommend it more highly!"

    "I cannot imagine a better learning environment for my child. Daystar is truly a holistic learning environment that encourages true understanding and analysis from the kids. If you are looking for a teach to test, worksheet environment, then Daystar may not be for you. But, if you are looking for a place where your child will become a thinker with a passion for learning, then I encourage you to look into Daystar. Visit the facility, as soon as you walk in the doors, you can feel this school is different. Kudos to the Administration and Teachers, not only is this an excellent learning environment, but this is an environment where children are respected and cherished and taught respect for themselves and others. I transferred my gifted child from a CPS school and could not be happier with my decision. While I would like to see expanded requirement of teacher certification, the growth, development and love of learning over the past year tells me I made the right decision."

    "I feel so blessed that I found Daystar school . It is a wonderful environment for children to be in. My kids love going to school. The learning environment is fun and engaging for the students. My son's class this year was studying sea creatures for a science unit; not only did they read about sea creatures ; they went to the Shedd aquarium and dissected a squid. Rather than just memorizing facts for tests that they will soon forget Daystar students are an active part of their learning. Daystar students are well rounded good kids. There is strong feeling of family among the teachers and the parents. A wonderful school. I wish Daystar had a high school."

    "My daughter attends Daystar s preschool. She loves her teacher and everything about her class. I love that the teacher adheres to developmentally appropriate practice , values each child, and is joyful and energetic. Students learn in the context of community. The teacher makes it a point to create a loving and safe environment where children can learn through experimentation and various ways. Her teacher also makes a point to forge a relationship with myself and the other parents. This school is everything I wanted for my daughter. It is a huge blessing for my daughter and for us."

    "My daughter came to Day Star in the 6th. Grade and it was a match made in heaven. She transferred from a CPS school where the students were taught to the test and pushed to pass the test , while dealing with a lot of the social problems that the other students brought to the classroom. At Day Star, she was introduced to books and reading as never before. Now we frequent the Chicago Public Library at her request to get books she is interested in. Math use to be a dreaded subject but now she can be found curled up on a coach working in her math book. The excursions (class trips) have given her 1st. hand experience into different communities, cultures, historical and current events. She comes home excited to report on what her class discussed or discovered. Day Star has opened her mind to a joy for learning. Day Star has not only given her a great love and excitement of academic learning but now she is in an environment where she can freely pray, given thanks to God, and read her bible. The more fully we give ourselves to the word of God, the more fully understanding comes in to our life . At Day Star, Education and God go hand in hand."
