I think you meant wondering. The school is meant for intelligent children. Seeing as you are their parent, I wouldn't bother.

Just ignore Jesus is coming.. Everyone misspells words~~~~ except you cause you're perfect~~~~

Anyway. Sent my kids there. I loved it. Very good education, teachers are hard working, very caring. Principal on the other hand, if you can avoid him, do it. Not one of the better principals I have seen. He was horrible, and still is from what I have heard. Could care less about the school. All there for himself. It is a struggle, with tuition, but well worth it in the end. You won't regret it. I know I haven't.

We sent our child to preschool at St. Chris, I agree with the above poster regarding the principal. He never responded to any of my questions or gave me the time of day, until Open House. He didn't even know we were existing parents and talked to me as if we were new to the school. Not professional at all. Did I forget about how he showed up very late for orientation and kept a lot of parents waiting? Not impressed with him our one year we were there. Teachers on the other hand, I have heard they are great. I have friends who send their children there and are happy. The one thing that we were concerned with is how there is always talk about it closing or being at risk of closing, due to low enrollment. The best thing to do is to schedule a tour of the school and see it for yourself. I don't know where you live, but there are a few private schools in the area that you could consider. During the last week of January is Catholic Schools week, many schools have open house during this time. We attend St. Damian now and are very happy. Any of the schools would be happy to give you a tour and some information and definitely look into their open houses. Good luck.

The Assistant Principal as well as the teachers are worth it. Tuition is rough but it beats the alternative. I know most of the other schools are more expensive. They also have financial aid that you can apply for.

I have two children that attend Incarnation in Palos Heights and it is a great school. I do not know much about St.Chris but I do know we get many transfer students from that school because of problems at the school.

@Jesus is coming....you are an evil spirit trying to hide behind the goodness of the Lord. If you are a parent of a child from that school I now know why so many children and families transfer from the school and the parish. Get a grip!!!!

If you do not know much about St. Chris then how do you know there are problems at the school? Many transfer students are going to Incarnation. I don't think so. It is a good school with great teachers. You ought to get a little Jesus in you. Sounds like you need it and if you are a parent at Incarnation then they are in real trouble!

The person you replied to is just our forum troll. He/She posts from the Chicago ip, and Joliet. They also post from another that I can't think of atm. I can tell because they misspells the same words all the time lol. You can also tell because the drama, and racist posts come from the 3 ip's this person uses. I wouldn't believe a word this troll types. Did you notice how He/She responds to his/her own posts? I hope this person does accept Jesus one day.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
