    "My daughter started Kindergarten this year at crete elementary and we love it. She was already smart and had learned alot in pre-k. However, her teacher Ms. Chavez is great. She has learned so much more and still continues to learn. There is alot of homework, but the homework is basically to reinterate what they have learned in class, to make sure that they understand it and to give them time to practice the material. From reading some of the reviews....it seems that some parents don't like all of the homework, but when you see the reward that comes from........your child coming home and reading a whole book to you in a matter of 5 months and knowing basic math , without needing assistance.......I can say I definitely appreciate the school and the teachers there......keep up the good work......."

    "I'm really sorry to hear your daughter is having such an experience. I'm also very surprised. We never had such problems in 3rd grade. I would strongly suggest you discuss your concerns with the teacher and/or the principal, and be persistent. I've taken this approach in the past and it was very successful. Who knows, it may be just a simple case of miscommunication."

    "I feel your pain with all of the homework, but our class (3rd grade) does not get the option of turning it in late. Last night we had 4 1/2 hours of homework!! What happened to the 'rule' of 10 minutes per grade level? My child is in tears when she gets home, and fights me about going to school. She's always loved school until this year. What used to be excitement about school is now dread."

    "My daughter has been going to crete elementary for three weeks now and is in kindergarten and has already come home with 31 pages of homework within a two week period and where talking about a child who is in kindergarten. What is she doing in the classroom during the day to come home with that much homework. My child is going to end up hating school by the time she finishes this school year at crete elementary. Do not recommended at all."

    "This is an excellent school. This year the fine arts programs have been added back in to the curriculum. The test scores are good, teachers are very dedicated, there are cutting edge things happening and best practices are utilized by the staff in all classrooms. The taxes are not high for Will County, and with little industry, the school district does whatever is possible to conserve resources and [rovide the best program possible."
