    Great school. Great teachers. My kids attended this school and excelled all through school. This school prepared them well for their future years in school. They have great programs which challenge the kids to excel and do their best. Excellent education received here. Every bit just as good if not even better than the Clarendon Hills and Hinsdale school systems.

    I have 2 sons who attend schools in the Maercker School District and I feel the district could do a better job! I am a very dedicated parent and attend school meetings and functions however you don't get the same dedcation from the teachers!

    My son has attended Maercker School for 3 years now and will be following up at Westview Hills. I absolutely love the school the teachers and the Principal and look forward to continuing in this district for the next 3 years. The teachers are very attentive to what is going on with the children and the children are actually challenged and not just running through it. The staff makes sure that the children are up to speed however want to make sure that they are consistantly advancing and not sitting idle. Thank you Maerker for all you do.
