St. Barnabas has an outstanding program. Committed teachers and staff engage all the students and continually challenge the children to reach higher goals. After visiting several schools in Chicago and the northwest indiana areas St. Barnabas is by far on top of the best school list.Highly recommend.

My children attended the school. The library,art,gym and technology are well done. The Afterschool Enrichment is very good. My children would have had a better experience is I had been on the school board or FSA. Their children get chosen for leadership or recognition. There is a strong distinction over families that get special treatment and the general population. My children are doing fine academically ,however I wish that the school would give all students opportunity to shine

St. Barnabas is by far one of the most segregated catholic schools in Chicago!!! I'm sure it's slightly improved since the non responsive Lenore Barnes is no longer the Principal. ***Use caution***

St. Barnabas is the best choice you can make for your child! I transferred my daughter from another private school because I was displeased with the administrators. They were out of touch with reality and they had no contrl over the children. Barnabas was the best decision we could have ever made. The staff is committed to the educational as well as emotional well-being of the students. They also want to help mold them into good human beings. They are preparing them for high school and excuses are not allowed. My daughter has to do note cards in 6th grade. She has to make sure her notebooks are kept up to date and that all the notes the teacher gave them for that day are included. Students receive "homework notices" if their work is not completed and it must be returned signed by the parent along with the work. I love it! Too often we let our children off the hook and allow the make excuses for not doing the best they can. Not here! The parental involvement is tops. They also have lots of extra-curricular activities for the children that you don't see at other schoolswhich is definitely a bonus. I can't say enough good things abou this school. I wish I had transferred her sooner.
