Prairie Crossing Charter School
109 Best Public Elementary Schools in Illinois

High School Senior: I had an amazing experience at Prairie Crossing. I feel especially prepared for AP Environmental Science which I am acing as a senior in high school this year. The friends I made were lifelong ones and, besides math (which I personally slacked off on, so it's not entirely the school's fault) I felt very prepared for high school. I'm a PC kid for life!

Junior: Westlake Christian Academy's mission is to provide for Christian families a Christ-centered education that disciples our students to honor Jesus Christ in thought, word and deed. With good academics it has a wonderful community and loving faculty. Most privates schools lack in academics and you might feel unprepared for college. However WCA is exactly what you need , the teachers invest their time and actually show that they care. You might think that WCA might be unaffordable since it is a private school but it's not. With numerous donors and sponsorships it is very affordable.

What else can be said about this amazing community?
Let's start with the administration. This team of professionals is second to none. Led by Andrew Sherman at the time of the writing, we received much more than expected. At every stage of our child's time here from admission forward, we were met with courteous, friendly, and professional individuals. Paired with the teaching staff, this group of family-oriented professionals know how to make a family feel welcomed.
Speaking of the teachers, they all deserve awards! Though we only have one child in the lower school, we often interact with the children in other grades. Be it at a school function, philanthropic event, or social gathering outside of the school, we're constantly impressed by the heightened degree of intellect that these children display. This is a great example of how a child can progress when given the right environment to thrive, the teachers at GEMS World Academy Chicago create this environment...

Olive C. Martin School
926 Best Public Elementary Schools in Illinois
- Lake Villa Community Consolidated School District No. 41, IL
Parent: The teachers, principal and staff are amazing. The foster a culture that is inclusive, fun and extremely conducive to learning. They teach more than the three R's and STEM. Each person actively engages students to help the children become all they can be.
In my opinion, the hot lunches leave a lot to be desired on both nutritional and palatable scales.
Also, we parents aren't as engaged as we can be. It seems like the PTO is always needing to beg at the last minute for volunteers. Also, more parents helping, especially for the early levels would be a huge plus.

Niche User: Raymond Ellis is a good school. I went there when I was little and the teachers helped me out a lot specially because I didn't speak much English and everyone always tried to understand me.
