School Reviews

I absolutely adore St John Berchmans school! Sending our children to this neighborhood school was the best decision we could have made for their academic success. The school's test scores soar above and beyond ANY CPS or private school in Logan Square. The teachers are dedicated and committed to the students. The parent community is involved with lots of fun events and volunteer opportunities. My child started at St John Berchmans school in 3 year old preschool. She graduated and got accepted into several select enrollment and private schools. She had so many options! SJB fully prepared my child to be competitive and ready to succeed in high school. I would 100% recommend St John Berchmans over any school, public or private, in Logan Square. They are simply the BEST school in terms of academics, test scores, social-emotional learning and parent community. A+
