18 Parent Reviews for St. Clement School

St Clement has a wonderful sense of community and provides a great moral framework for the students. That being said the quality of education especially in math and sciences is weak. The school is primarily interested in making sure that all students are brought to a minimum level. There are no programs ...  Read more

St Clement School has a weak early education program compared to other good schools in Chicago with relatively inexperienced teachers in preK and throughout early elementary years. Talk to as many people as you can before deciding on this school. Children take a backseat to the school's academic based ...  Read more

My three children have attended St. Clement since pre-K (eldest now in 7th grade) and we have had a fantastic experience with the school and parish. What other reviews haven't mentioned is the meaningful role that the wonderful pastor and assistant pastor play in the kids' lives. The daily instruction ...  Read more

We recently transferred our children to St. Clement and don't know why we didn't do it ages ago! The education is challenging and the teachers do such a wonderful job of making learning fun. The don't burden the kids with "busy work" for homework. Instead, the homework is meaningful and interesting ...  Read more

As a parent who has recently transferred two young children to St. Clement School, I would say the staff is impressive in their commitment. We have had a positive experience, as teachers clearly demonstrate a vested interest in teaching children to learn. Known for its academics, the school backs up ...  Read more

As a parent who has had at least 1 child in this school since 2001, i have to say that this school is really terrific. My 2 children were very different from on another. One, while gifted, had dyslexia (actually identified as an issue we should investigate by his 2nd grade teacher at St Clement) and ...  Read more

I went to St. Clement about 20 years ago. It was a great school. The teachers really cared, even though they were (and might still be) poorly paid. The school was very diverse (not sure if that's still the case). I am now quite successful. Even more so than some of my friends that went to Latin or Parker.

Overall, I am very happy with St. Clement School. Our son just finished third grade (his fifth year) and is thriving academically. He has had excellent teachers since day one so academically our experience has been excellent. My only problem with the school is that a small but vocal subset of the parent ...  Read more

St. Clement, while not perfect, is a very good school. For better or worse, it is also a reflection of its largely upper-middle-class parent community. Some of the earlier reviews should be seen in this light. As in any school, there are some stronger teachers and some who struggle, but the overall ...  Read more

The way they teach is very outdated and the school is very cheap. The textbooks stink and are used. We never buy new books. Uper grade teachers are rude.
