    "O'Keeffe is definitely a school that is not only excellent, but strives towards greater excellence. All staff members (from the custodial staff to administration) are professional, welcoming, caring and take great pride in the school. But above all, each places student success above all. The staff work as a team tirelessly to provide quality education so all of the students master the subject material and enjoy school, while feeling loved and safe. O'Keeffe is definitely a school of EXCELLENCE preparing students well for college, career and beyond."

    "I am a student at Okeeffe School Of Excellence. I am in 6th grade.And I would like to say that when I came to this amazing school I thought it was like any other school. But i was wrong. The teachers here teach their in a special way. In a way where the student understand. Okeeffe inspires it's student to do the best they can. And all of Okeeffe's students are well behaved. When I saw all of Okeeffe's students I said ''wow'' to myself. And with all the after-school programs the students get all the help they need and much more.I think Okeeffe is one of the best schools in Chicago. 12-16-14 From:Shanelle Moffett"
