I can't say enough how impressed I am with this school! I transferred my child from cps to St.Symps! Wow! Nothing but a welcoming community! I wish I would have sent my child here years ago! The communication between parent and teacher is amazing! This is a great school for the Garfield ridge area and clearing!

My husband and I are beyond happy with our choice to enroll our daughter in St. Symphorosa. The staff truly cares about every child at the school. Our daughter is in Pre-K - she gets Math, Reading, Religion, and playtime every day, plus computers, art, P.E., Spanish, and Music every week. The school truly feels like a community and welcomes every family with open arms. I highly recommend St. Symphorosa!

This school has been amazing! We joined this school for kindergarten and they have been nothing but accepting! The homework that my child receives has been impressive. They focus so much on getting the kids to read and how Matt is equally important. They make my daughter want to come home and read and I love that she's already showing interest instead of saying away from it. I would highly recommend this school!

The school truly feels like a community and you are family once you are there. I highly recommend St. Symphorosa!

I would not only recommend this school I would like to challenge anyone that wouldn't a personal invitation to visit our school. Please call the main office at 773-585-6888 and ask to set up a tour.

The school is amongst a great deal of welcoming change and we invite you to experience that change with us.
