Immaculate Conception School Reviews
Some of the teachers are evil, some are really good.
Behavior - bullying, etc is not an issue. Teachers are too invested in the students to let something like that happen
They LIVE for their sports there- especially football. Other clubs are an afterthought. After school activities are largely for the purpose of day care, not really teaching anything.
If you aren't a firefighter or a police officer, your kid is not going to be "one of the guys." The parents are a very hard drinking group, as a whole, the football team parents were reprimanded for drinking BEFORE the elementary school football games. The teachers are great - so my kid is there for the education, not for the friends. They're all nice to him in school and everything, but 95% of the parties are cop families only. Our family is a total after thought.
IC is riding a high from 20 years of a charismatic principal. This year a new principal started, and some people are unhappy, but change is hard. I think she'll turn out just fine. The teachers in the middle school are wonderful, but middle grades (4&5) have some awful teachers, so great ones. The entire place would be a 5/5 if they fired 2-3 teachers. But out of 20+ teachers, that's not too bad!
Having gone to this school for 10 years of my life, it became a second home to me. I always felt welcomed and never had to worry about my safety because of the the fantastic location of this school on the NW side of Chicago. I will forever be thankful that my parents decided to send me to Immaculate Conception School, one of the best in the Chicagoland area.
