McDade Classical School Reviews

My son will be going into 2nd grade at McDade. This school is the only reason we still live in the city. It's small close knit and very intentional about providing an excellent education for kids. When you have generations of parents and grandparents still heavily involved in the school, that speaks volumes. A great school is about more than high test scores, which McDade students have - it's about engaged and involved families, integrity, character, high standards and strong leadership. My son has a growing love for learning and is getting a holistic educational experience at this Chicago Public School; from academics, to learning to play the violin, to stem programs; It's truly a gem.

All 3 of my children have attended this school and I have been pleased! This school will meet your child's needs. The teachers focus specifically on the areas your child needs improvement and tutoring will be provided if necessary. If your child excels in a particular subject area they also offer more advanced academics for those children. It is a great family environment! There are plenty of activities available for the students to participate in. Most importantly, this school teaches values and will provide a safe environment for your child!
It's very difficult to get in this school due to the selective enrollment process, however once admitted it is an excellent school!
