    We enrolled our child three years ago and are quite satisfied with the education she is receiving. As parents we sought a school with a high reputation for academic performance as well as an environment that fostered personal growth creativity and responsibility. While every school has opportunities to improve what is most impressive about St. Gilbert is it realizes improvement is the result of open and honest relationships with parents. All of the school s administrators board members and faculty are accessible and engaged in delivering a quality educational experience. The net result is our child is receiving a great education within a framework of traditional Christian values.

    I removed my daughter from St. Gilbert in 2006 due to the administrator mentioned in the most recent post. I am thrilled to hear that she is leaving. I have had two children at SGS in grades k-3 and the teachers are amazing! They are among the most caring and capable teachers around. They create communities in their classrooms. The quality of teaching is unmatched in this area. The teachers are pure gold!

    St. Gilbert Elementary School suffers greatly from an extremely poor administratior. There is very little coordination between teachers in each grade - and no communication between the administration and teachers.

    Great school both my boys attended K-8. Great preparation for high school and college. Every child that wants to play Inter-scholasitc sports makes a team. We have more kids playing sports than all the Grayslake public schools put together. This is possible through massive parental involvment. St Gils also has a nationally ranked chess team and a state ranked math team. The school also puts on a musical every year.

    My daughter is attending Kindergarten and loves it. I am impressed with how much she is learning. There are many extracurricular activities and a lot of parent involvement.
