    "My son was on the wait list and after not hearing back from the school this past fall we figured that he probably didn't get in. Late Jan/early Feb we received a call that there was room and that he would be able to start in about two weeks if we still wanted to accept the offer. Mayer was our first choice so we decided to go for it. He has only been at the school for a little over a month now and I couldn't be more pleased. He LOVES this school and begs that he go to school even on weekends ! Mayer is not for everyone, it really all depends on your child and how they learn. Mayer is geared towards a more independent/hands on approach. It allows the child to get creative and find different solutions to questions other than the standard ABC approach. This school is also VERY organized when it comes to drop off/pick up of your child. There are many parents involved in may aspects of the school. Though the school asks for donations, they are strictly OPTIONAL , no one will treat you or your child different if you decide not to donate. The only reason I am giving this school a 4 is because my child has only been here for a little over a month."

    "Oscar Mayer where do I start. This is my daughters 1st year at Oscar Mayer. She has gone from great student to below average.Honestly the program is not fit for her not only because she is used to a more ordered approach. But my daughter came to me today and said that she needs more help at school. She also said that the teacher pulls names out of a hat to see who she is going to help next...sounds like a funky way of helping students learn. I see that most of the teachers are young with masters degrees but honestly don't know the first thing about children. Yes there can also be some prejudice when it comes to minorities also. It seems that emphasis is more in the arts than the basics such as math and reading. I am utterly shocked and would think this upper class community would furnish a more quality education. Not to mention the constant begging for money for the school...yeah maybe if it was worth it I would. Than God for options and may God Bless your decision when finding a school for your child. Hopefully by next week my child will be transferred."

    "I have two kids at Mayer Elementary. This is a great school, with great teachers, and an incredible community. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else."

    "We transferred our 1st grader from a private school to Oscar Mayer this school year and could not be happier with the results! The Montessori approach has been a perfect fit for our son, who is a more hands-on learner. The teachers are dedicated, supportive and responsive. Ironically his class size (26) is the same as it would have been in his private school, plus every EL1 class (1st - 3rd grades) has an assistant, so his student/teacher ratio is low (13:1). The parents seem very involved and welcoming! We also love the sense of community that revolves around the school. There are a lot of opportunties to get involved and Friends of Mayer is very committed towards fundraising to keep OM one of the most sought-after schools in CPS."

    "We have just transferred our child from another excellent LP elementary school, purely because of moving into the Mayer boundaries. We also have a child in the Early Childhood program. So far, we are really very happy with the school. The teachers are friendly, dedicated and responsive, the parent body very committed to creating a topnotch school, and the initiatives to develop the children into leaders and caring individuals, truly impressive. Yes, it has taken a while to adjust to the Montessori way (totally new to us), and possibly more difficult for some children to adjust to smaller groups of same-grade kids in their class (mine is an example), but I believe the benefits of what they learn outweighs this. The current Greatschools ratings and descriptions are not reflective of the reality in the school. I predict a big change in the test scores and ratings this year."
