    "My child attends St. Nicholas and we ve seen many improvements this past year. Beyond the external changes that have revitalized the look of the school, they ve made internal changes, as well. The principal has an open door policy, holds a weekly meeting with parents and works with the parent ambassadors. The faculty and staff are engaged and focused on their students. Ms. Talaber, the 7th grade teacher, was just announced as a Golden Apple finalist. We re elated she's teaching the upper grades in science and math. Ms. Shay Shavocchi, our 1st grade teacher, won the Chicago Heroes of the Classroom award in 2013. We congratulate both of them. The afterschool tutoring for the students, the free toddler time for neighborhood families, a new drama club, and the school performances in multiple languages including Spanish are refreshing! I know that my child had benefited from attending this school, not only for her academic achievements (which had to be earned) but for the religious and leadership education, as well."

    "This school has lost its focus this year. They were a great school up until this year. Last year they had a lot of great things and had a few great parents that worked their butts off to make it work. Now I don't see anything good in this school. They only offer one sport for the kids after school, and most other Catholic Schools have a lot of great sports. Only a few parents step up and help with this school and one who was very active is not even here anymore. I don't know if his family moved away but he was always trying to make money for the school. They had a car raffle last year were selling tickets for Bulls games, and this year they don't have anything. The parents are to blame for the reason this school is in such bad shape. We never know what is going on with this school. Now they are wanting to put us in a old building and rent out the new building to another school. Shame on all those people who attended this school and not giving back to the place that gave them a great education. I would think they would call up the former students and ask for donations but they don't. I know because I am former student and my kid goes their now. We are pulling out of here"

    "I am a parent of a Pre-K student who started at the school this year. The staff is very caring and everyone has been very open, friendly and welcoming. There is a good focus on academics - my child does worksheets and art projects - and has improved at writing. St. Nicholas is reasonably priced, has an after school program, small class sizes, caring teachers and aides, well disciplined kids, quiet classrooms, a sense of community - what more can you ask for? I feel that my child is in good hands."

    "I went to visit the school because I am looking for one for my son and the service was excellent!!! I had the opportunity to talk with some students and they are happy about the school!! I also had a conversation with a new parent from pre k and she said she is too happy with the way her daughter is developing. I have no doubt; I will bring my son to the school. By the way, I LOVE the color they have and the principal s office is OPEN to parents and students always. Here we go!"

    "Great school! Great teachers! Great parents! I don t know if this school did wrong in the past but as a new parent I recommend other parents to give their child the chance on being well educated in this catholic school. Thank you to the teachers and the new administration!"
