    "Great school! My kids couldn't be happier here! They have excelled in all subjects. Teachers are always willing to stay with your child if they need extra help. This school goes above and beyond when it comes to education. When I see what my children are learning I know my money is well spent. Besides sports, the school also has many activities through out the year like Chess Club and Spanish Club. St. Syms is just one big family and I couldn't be happier!"

    "St. Symphorosa is a wonderful school. From pre-k on up. My child excelling and is happy. This school does a great job with religion and incorporating it into other subjects and making it all relevant. I don't believe that sports is the main focus of the school. There are other activities and extracurricular offerings. Scouts, chess club, guitar as well after school Spanish class. There is something for everyone. If your looking for a school definitely check it out. Call the school and arrange a shadow day for your child. Decide for yourself. Don't let one or two negative comments influence your decision."

    "Saint Symphorosa School is a wonderful school. My family and I grew up at St. Symphorosa and my children currently go there and we truly feel the love of the school community. The teachers really look out for the students best interests and love them as if they are their own. I am happy to be a part of the St. Symphorosa Family."

    "Academically, this school falls short. Other schools in the area - including CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS offer more academically. The curriculum here falls far behind that of other schools in the area - as much as two to three years behind. Many parents of students in upper grades and/or graduates complain that the school did not prepare their children for high school level math, science, technology, etc. Students graduating from this school have a distinct disadvantage academically. I do agree with other posters that sports is the number one focus on this school, but learning to play sports is NOT going to prepare students for high school and beyond. I have heard some parents complain about bullying, and that the faculty and administration do not try to stop that activity. Some families have left because of this. Overall, people should "pass" on this school - the curriculum is poor, the focus is on sports instead of academics, and they allow bullying to go unchecked. It does very little to prepare students for high school or beyond."

    "St. Symphorosa is the best Catholic school in the Midway area. My children have been very happy and have excelled in their academics. The Teachers are wonderful..I have never been in a school where the teachers genuinely care about each and every student. The Principal is a strong leader and has brought this school to new heights. Parents who want their way all the time and make it difficult for others have been sifted out....kudos! There is a true family atmosphere in this school"
