  • St. Thomas the Apostle Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    I am a parent of a middle school child at STA. This is a fantastic school, especially moving into the middle school years. The principal is incredibly involved, approachable, and dedicated. The class size is small and the teachers know each child very intimately. The workload in middle school is high, but the idea is to prepare kids for high school. The teachers are passionate and professional. It would be nice if there was a bit more diversity (my child is not black), but this seems to be progressively improving and my child has never felt anything but completely welcome. This is a school that is good for kids at all levels of academic performance and I have been impressed that the teachers are helping my child reach an individualized potential--as opposed to being a school that enrolls all high-performing kids and then takes credit for their (expected) high standardized test scores--that said, kids here are doing well on standardized tests too. Above all, if you visit STA I think you will find it obvious that the kids here are genuinely happy and glad to be there. Bullying is not tolerated whatsoever. Credit to the principal and teachers this is a very good school

Support Education

Hello Bronzeville and Hyde Park. My name is Louis Robertson. I'm a 20 year old college student.

However I could not attend my second year of college because I was short about $3,500 in tuition cost. I'm now attending Kennedy King but I want to go back to Western Illinois.

Hello Bronzeville and Hyde Park. My name is Louis Robertson. I'm a 20 year old college student. I went away for my first year of college last year to Western Illinois University (WIU) and I must say it was a great experience. However I could not attend my second year of college because I was short about $3,500 in tuition cost. I'm now attending Kennedy King but I want to go back to Western Illinois. I'm asking for the community help of helping me raise money to pay WIU so that I can go back next year to finish off my education. You can help be donating money to me on my go fund me account. Here is the link http://www.gofundme.com/9hhm5k every donation will be very much appreciated.
