    My son currently attends Medill. Unfortunately he will be leaving as my husbands employer is relocating us out of state. I am finding this site and parent comments very helpful while trying to find a new school. I hope my review can help someone else. Medill is an EXCELLENT school. The teachers and staff are well trained and very much down to earth. They care about these children so much I feel that there is nothing they wouldn't do for them. Their technology is is up to date and academics are of the up most importance. My son has been in kindergarten for 92 days and he is READING! This school is also very much oriented around parental involvement. They encourage parents to voluteer as much or as little as they want and always make you feel welcome. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants a quality education.
