    "After numerous preschools in Highland Park, I enrolled my son in St. James & never regretted it. They usually have 1 teacher, and 2 teacher's aides for the PreK classroom. They get the kids outside in the winter, unlike other local PreKs that are in Dist 112. The school worked so well for my family that I kept him enrolled for their all day Kindergarten program. Mrs. Pohl, the Kindergartner teacher & vice principal, is that teacher who loves each child for their individuality. The Rowland Readers program is a favorite of the students. This school truly cares about each child. The teachers are patient and keep parents informed of your child's progress. They welcome parents to be involved in their child's school day, unlike the public schools in the area that stop you from entering at the front desk. The Kindergartners love the "buddy" program they have with pairing them with an older child in the middle school grades. They learn by example, and make a new friend. If you ever have a problem, the office is open for you to reach out to the principal. Mrs. Vitulli, a former teacher & current principal, loves this school and it shows."

    "As a retired military family, we have traveled the country from coast to coast and experienced montessori schools, public schools, home schooing and by the grace of God we found St. James School. All four of my children have attended the thrived at this school. The faculty go above and beyond to ensure that all students are taught at their level. Children are encouraged to work at their own pace and if they are advanced then they move up. If they need help they are given exttra help. No one is just "pushed" along. It is a loving and nurturing environment with the same values and morals that we teach at home. I feel that these teachers are my partners and this school is truly and extension of our home."

    "I am a fan of St. James! I have two daughters in 2nd and 4th grades at St. James. They are excited everyday to go to school and disappointed on days they don't. As I parent this is a wonderful feeling. Beyond that, I feel that the education they are receiving is really preparing them for their future learning experiences. The principal, teachers, staff, and parents work together as a family to make sure that my girls are getting what they need to not only be great students but also great people. I volunteer weekly at the school and see first hand how the teaching staff is fully involved in making sure that my children are engaged and getting the most out of school. This school has been a great fit for us, it gives me peace of mind to know that my children are happy and leaning at St. James."

    "This school is about average. They are not in the top 10% in the country. The class sizes vary from year to year. When there is not enough enrollment, like in my 3rd grade daughter's class, they combined 2nd/3rd grade and did not tell us until school started. My child had already learned her 2nd grade material."
