I, too, attended Trumbull. I believe I went to school there from 1967-1970 when I graduated. I also had Mr. Delean for science. I remember one day while sitting in his class, not paying attention, he called on me to answer a question and I couldn't answer it. He told me to "Go back to sleep Knapp". I think he said that to me because my last was Knapp. Needless to say I paid attention from then on. My younger sister had Mr. Koob for her teacher. He was her favorite also. Do you remember Mr. Chernoff? He taught U.S. History(?). I thought he was a good teacher and I think most of the students in the school had the Carol Channing look-a-like teacher for 8th grade. I remember the wind tunnel.I was afraid to go in there. (Silly I was back then.LOL) For the short period of time that I was there, I have no bad memories of my time there. Ironically, several years later, my oldest daughter went there for special education classes for one school year. When I had to attend a parent-teacher conference there, I was amazed at how small the school was and I think Mr. Koob was principal at the time. Yes, I had some pretty good memories from there.

I remember when my mother took me for a bus ride to school, when I was just in Kindergarten and the next day, she put me on the first bus and I had to transfer to another bus to school, all by myself. I had to focus on the flower shop as a marker and believe it or not, that store is still there! This School is where I got My start in education. I can still remember the Red Paddle that fanned my tailbone in the Cloakroom and the stern education that was instilled in me by the Nuns there from Kindergarten to 4th grade. I will always carry a respect for my Catholic upbringing. I did not go all the way in the Education Field, but, I carry enough within my mind to know that what was given to me has helped me tremendously and I continue to inspire my offsprings through four generations to stay within the educational learning fields to get what life has in store for them and NO!, I do not utilize the Red Paddle!, but it is a thought... at times... I know that there is a lot of controversy about the Catholic Church, but, I, was fortunate enough not to experience any of alledged things that have been sources for Newsworthy coverage.
I have never had my children in a daycare setting before. My youngest is very bright. I knew she would benefit from the interaction with other children as well as the stimulation a classroom setting would provide. I was also in a position returning to school full time needing to decide between a private sitter or a day care/preschool setting. I looked at many schools and decided on JFH. The cost was about the same as others. The difference was they had an open door policy so I did not feel as though they were hiding things. Also each classroom has a certified teacher, the pre-K and kindergarten follow IL curriculum guide lines. There is a nice play ground. The staff and teachers are very friendly, my daughter loves it. Is it the "poshiest" no. It is however a place your child will feel safe, will learn and will feel cared about. There has never been a violation, abuse or safety issue in the 30 years of business. As a nurse, as a parent I am happy I know my daughter is safe, has fun, learns and is cared for when I bring her to school. Hope this helps when considering a program for your child
We have two children enrolled at Our Lady of Victory (OLV) since 2006. The educational experience has been wonderful! Our girls have participated in hands-on science experiments and accelerated reading programs. The Science innovation lab, iPad and computer lab are favorites for the kids! Each classroom has iPads and an Apple TV or Whiteboard. The faculty is experienced and the teachers create a safe and enriching learning environment. The girls attend weekly all school mass where the classes take turns doing the readings and petitions. Monthly, the children participate in the Sunday mass. There is a wonderful band program and choir, as well as after school programs such as sports, chess, art and theater classes. The Girl and Boy Scout program is also very active. The community gets together for our Christmas Bazaar, Super bowl Sunday, St Patrick’s Day Party, Vender Blender and many other activities. The OLV family is very welcoming and extends far outside of the school boundaries!
I really need more stars to rate this school it such a great learning institution ….it changed my life. By being in this school I never had to worry about the world changing me... because as they taught us at MUI that one day we’re going to change the world. MUI helped me to focus on my work and succeed in life. They teach each and every one of us that we are the future and that we are getting prepared to carry the world on our shoulders and deliver our people to God. By doing this they also help us become better Citizens with top morals with the most preeminent behavior and over all the best.....I love this school it is most definitely a school for future leaders as the motto that they enforce into the children every day goes don’t let anyone excel you in anything !!!!! This has followed throughout life. It is a fact that MUI is the best school in the world; and that there is no school like it!!!!!!
It's a small school, which means each child gets more personal attention. It is faith based, and the kids get to learn about Jesus, Christianity, and how to include Christian values in their daily lives. The staff is caring and patient. In my opinion it's well worth the paying the tuition. My child has attended this school since first grade and will graduate from there. She is far more advanced than other children at her age and grade level who attend public schools. The principal and many of the other teachers take on multiple roles, which makes the experiences easier for the children. They get the experience of having two grades in one classroom. The lower grade students gets exposed to the academics of the higher grade, while the higher grade students act as peers and sometimes tutors. They have the many extra curricular options like sports, band, choir, and more. It's a great school!
I have three children at Cambridge. One has graduated and another graduates this year and the other is in the grammar school. They teach one to two grade levels ahead and my children consistently test two to three grade levels ahead on standardized tests in math, language arts, and reading comprehension. I especially love the parental community. They are very supportive and close knit like a family. The teachers are passionate about learning. The administration supports the effort to constantly reevaluate the school's ability to fulfill its mission statement. The Christian emphasis helps to maintain a strong moral environment. Chicago needs more schools like this. These students are going to the best selective enrollment high schools, competing and winning in academic competitions, and they are producing very cordial and intelligent students. I love this school.
I have been at Cambridge for five years. Prior to selecting Cambridge, I visited various schools. This school has a solid foundation. The leadership is strong. The teachers demonstrate great patience and excellence. Students are attentive and excited about the learning. My child came to the school very shy. She has had to stand before her class and present research projects, speak at assemblies, and participate in various programs. She is now confident, poised, and far more vocal. Her self-esteem is higher as a result of the environment at Cambridge. I could not have chosen a better environment. I see where their graduates are going to high school and it makes me even more impressed. I am thankful to Mr. Barber for founding the school. I am thankful to the PreK, K, 1st and 2nd grade teachers for their efforts. I highly recommend this place for your child.

This film center is truly an honor to the late Gene Siskel. It's beautiful inside and plays movies that you may not be able to find anywhere else, especially foreign, independent, art-house, and documentaries. I especially like how they have different themes each month, that focus on films from a particular director, country, region, subject matter, genre, etc. They obviously put a great amount of love and passion into the selection, rather than just slapping together a bunch of films. The atmosphere is great too; more upscale that the average theater, but not stuffy or snobby, and ticket prices are very reasonable. It's just a great place for people who love film to gather together.
