    "Embers Elementary is like a home away from home! I feel very secure sending my 3 children to this school knowing that they are receiving the best in terms of academics, virtues, and moral education. The staff and administration go out of their way to make you feel at home and even come outside to greet all children in the morning so they get a good start to the day! What service! The national testing tend to be 20 points higher than average at this school. We feel confident that our children are learning more than just about books. The exemplar character of the administration and teachers is transparent and evident as they transmit these qualities to the children. They plant seeds of generosity, honesty, faith, justice just to name a few and truly watch those virtues grow into strong roots that will last a lifetime. Truly these children become the ember sparks and light to our world. We are eternally grateful to have such a wonderful school compliment the education of our children! We highly recommend this school and know that you will be highly satisfied with the character potential that this school transmits to your family! A Catholic school gem!"

    "Embers is an outstanding Catholic school. It has very high academic standards and focus on each child's individual needs. The students are one year ahead in Math in every grade and they will accommodate your child to move up even higher if they are strong in the subject. They have outstanding Terra Nova testing results every year compared to all other elementary schools in Illinois. Not only does Embers top in academics, but also is excellent in character formation. The children are taught solid, true Catholic formation which is hard to find in even the other Catholic schools today. The teachers and faculty are dedicated to the children and parent involvement is impressive. I've been sending my children to this school for many years and I can see them grow not only in academic excellence, but also in good moral behavior and virtues. It has a unique and close-knit environment where children thrive. I would definitely recommend this school to others."

    "What was once great is now turning into a disaster. I don't know what happened to this once former gem of a school but all I know is that it is falling flat on its face. HALF of the teachers have left on their own this year. Several parents have pulled their kids out. The school is moving to a different location, why? The Kindergarten, Fourth and Fifth grade teachers left the school because of a poor administration, lousy pay and an absent school board. It appears that the principle, Mrs. Davis, does not seem to care which is not a surprise as a parent trying to work with her all you get is empty promises or a blank stare. We paid a lot of money to send our kids to this school and it is falling apart at the seams. I blame the principle and the school board for their lack of concern and sloppy handling of internal and external affairs. How do you loose teachers that have been there for years? How? This school needs a new administration from the top down and even then I don't know if it will help anymore. When the boss can not lead any longer then that person should recognize that and step down for the sake of the children and the parents who are PAYING to put them there."

    "Embers does a great job in taking care of its students and teaching the key virtues. The teachers are caring and take pride in making sure the students are being developed to be respectful and responsible adults. Our daugther loves going to school and has a very positve attitude to learning. The school really creates a great environment for learning and becoming a good person."

    "The only regret I have is that I transferred my daughter until 4th grade.. but I guess is never too late. Best school ever! Mrs. Davis is a jewel."
