St. Walter use to be a very family oriented school. In recent years, since the new administration came aboard, all of that has changed. I am a parent of a St. Walter graduate and of a current student; unfortunately, this will be my last and final year (along with other families). The academics are ...  Read more

Tight nit community school. Teachers are exceptional! Very integrated and lots of family/parent involvement is offered.

I took my child out after 2 weeks. After moving back to the Beverly/Morgan Park neighborhood, I thought it would be nice if my child could attend St. Walter's since all of us graduated from there. The curriculum was far inferior. My child was being taught everything she had learned the previous year ...  Read more

St. Walter is a good school. The one thing I don't like is the class size. There are too many students. I was not expecting such a large class in a privare school. Which in turns makes it a little more difficult for teachers to assist the students that might be struggling in certain areas.

Don't ever bring your child to this establishment. The s.taff are extremely rude and condescending, not to mention useless, especially the 8th grade teacher, Mary Pat.

I have been a parent of a student at St. Walter for over 11 years & would not imagine sending my children anywhere else. The whole education received at St. Walter can not be matched anywhere. The teaching staff from pre-k to eighth grade prepares the children to succeed in H.S. & in life.
