St. Matthias is a wonderful school, offering an outstanding education but so much more. Development of the whole child is considered: leadership skills, emotional well-being, physical and fostering a positive and service oriented outlook on life. The IB character traits are seamlessly woven into the classroom education. These are the principles we as parents want our children to possess and it’s great to have a school partnering in this effort. The parent community is wonderful. Lots of opportunities to be good role models for our children here!

Fantastic and inclusive community, wonderful teachers, dedicated staff! I feel very confident that my children are receiving a well rounded education and I really appreciate the IB aspects of their education.
I appreciate the preparation SMS gives the kids for the selective enrollment high school application process in Chicago. The principal is a strong leader who motivates teachers and families alike. The new honors math program is wonderful, and not easily found in an IB program- where the focus and strength tend toward literature and language and social studies. The arts are incorporated into everything to make learning fun. My kids love the school.
