    "St. Al has made some wonderful changes in the past two years and the families are absolutely terrific. My child is happy and enjoys tremendous care and attention due to smaller class sizes. The teachers are dedicated and communicative. Academically they have implemented a S.T.E.A.M. program and the students will be well prepared to attend the highly ranked Hersey, Prospect, Wheeling or Viator high schools. Instilling a sense of morals, service and community is important and our child has thrived in this wonderful environment."

    "I have 3 children enrolled at St. Alphonsus Liguori and am very pleased with their academic progress, the teachers and their peer group. I chose to send my children to St. Alphonsus because of their Blue Ribbon standing. School academics is number one on my priority list as well as values and character building. My children are excited about going to school and are suitably challenged by the lessons and projects their teachers have put great effort and thought in planning. I am very impressed by the teachers' creativity and dedication. The parental involvement is inspirational and we share the same values. It's a nice community atmosphere. A lot of great childhood memories are being formed here along with great friendships. The school is also dedicated to instilling a sense of service to others whether it's recycling, food pantry collections or students visiting a nursing home. I know at St. Alphonsus my children are being well formed and well educated."

    "We moved from out-of-state two years ago and enrolled our two children at Saint Alphonsus after looking at several Catholic schools in the Northwest Suburbs. What we liked most about Saint Alphonsus was it's challenging academic programs, which have resulted in the school being awarded the Blue Ribbon of excellence. We also loved the welcoming atmosphere. Both children are excelling academically and reading well above grade level. I would highly recommend Saint Alphonsus."

    "My child has attended this school for six years now. This year, we are working with math and reading textbooks that are between 13 and 17 years old. No additional resources other than reading. New principal this year. Hopefully he makes a difference. Principal rating is for prior principal. Previous one was a joke. Did nothing to stop bullying. Did not like confrontation. Made poor choices when discussing issues with parents. The kids here are spoiled, rude, and do not understand what respect is. Some of the parents just sit back and watch and think, aren't these such great kids? Not. Teachers are quick to label a slow learner as a 'problem child' or one that 'has ADD'. If the public school near me wasn't even worse with dropping grades, my child would be out in a second."

    "If you're thinking of sending your children here think twice. It is full of rich snobby kids who think they are better than everyoney. Teachers are old dried out people, who for no obvious reason still teach. Not to mention the ciriculum is a joke. Religion class? That's a great fourty minutes well spent at the end of the day. The teachers wanna go home just as bad as the kids so it becomes a free-for-all. Another major downfall is discipline. A kid is bullied his whole eight years at this school and not once is something done, because the principal doesn't like confrontation, or the child stands up for himself in the wrong way and he is punished. The school today is full of foreign exchange students and teachers having affairs. What message does that send to the children? Not one I would want my kid to see. I was sent to this school to protect me from being exposed to the bad things of public school, but I was exposed to just as much wrong at St. Alphonsus. For any parent thinking on sending your children to St. Alphonsus, please take this into consideration. This is from the mouth of a student who was treated terribly. The best teacher is Mrs. Fricano."
