    "I went to St. Clement from first grade on and I just have to say that if someone asked me if I could go back to any elementary school in Chicago I would chose St. Clement, I loved my experience at this school and wouldn't trade it for the world. So to all the people that have been saying that St. Clement does not provide a good education for there children could not be more wrong."

    "St Clement has a wonderful sense of community and provides a great moral framework for the students. That being said the quality of education especially in math and sciences is weak. The school is primarily interested in making sure that all students are brought to a minimum level. There are no programs oriented toward top students. There is no tracking in science and mathematics. Even the most advanced math students are forced to progress at the level of the average student. The school has refused to track students because of the "psychologic impact it may have on the lesser student." Talented 8th grade students are forced to take drama but have no access to advanced math. There is no science lab. Students are assigned group science projects that are more busy work than educational. St Clement is a very pleasant, kind and nice place. The teachers are very friendly and caring. The education is not in step with the STEM education that is so badly needed to orient children toward careers in the sciences and engineering. For a parent of a bright student who has aptitude in math or science, your child will feel frustrated and unfulfilled in this school."

    "St Clement School has a weak early education program compared to other good schools in Chicago with relatively inexperienced teachers in preK and throughout early elementary years. Talk to as many people as you can before deciding on this school. Children take a backseat to the school's academic based program. St. Clement's reputation is not what the reality of the school is- lots of stress and ego. St. Clement's School would benefit from walking the talk they present. For example, they had one of the authors of "Raising Cain" come to speak to the parents about raising boys, but they don't adhere to his academic recommendations at school. There is a lot of posturing without substance."

    "My three children have attended St. Clement since pre-K (eldest now in 7th grade) and we have had a fantastic experience with the school and parish. What other reviews haven't mentioned is the meaningful role that the wonderful pastor and assistant pastor play in the kids' lives. The daily instruction in the whole individual, academic and moral, is professional, loving and effective. There have been some spots of problems - no school is perfect - but the problems get handled in an atmosphere were everyone can express their opinions and contribute to the community. The school has a great base of lower school instruction, and the middle school is really a gem. The kids are challenged academically and motivated to rise to it, based on really interesting and dedicated teachers. The kids definitely have fun in their classes, too. Our new principal has elevated everything about the school and continues to focus on areas which can be even better. Finally, the community of families has become our home and filled with our best friends. We could not be happier with our elementary school."

    "We recently transferred our children to St. Clement and don't know why we didn't do it ages ago! The education is challenging and the teachers do such a wonderful job of making learning fun. The don't burden the kids with "busy work" for homework. Instead, the homework is meaningful and interesting to my children. The kids go on so many field trips, so far they've gone on one every month this year! It's a warm environment with so many extracurricular offerings such as: sports, school paper, student government, service opportunities, humanities club, band, choir, drama...too many to list! We are so impressed and so grateful our children were accepted."
