Immaculate Conception High School Reviews
We highly recommend Immaculate Conception High School. We've had one child graduate and is currently attending a top University where she is excelling. We have another child enrolled currently at ICHS. The school has been serving Elmhurst, IL and the surrounding communities for 75 years. Enrollment is around 350 students which leads to an atmosphere where you are a "name" not a "number", and you feel nutured as a student. There are AP and Honors classes in all the CORE subjects, plus an opportunity to take actual college courses across the campus at the neighboring Elmhurst College. My child went into University with a full semester of TRANSFERABLE credits and a lot of confidence as well. There are a high percentage of 2 and 3 sport athletes at ICHS and usually you'll find them doing a multitute of other clubs as well. Academics are a priority and preparing students for College is evident at this wonderful, college prep school. Students do not make appointments to see teachers; rather, they just stop by and ask for help or clarification of material. There is no need to hire extra tutors as the staff is ready, willing, and able to help the students at the school. The class size is small, regardless of class. Most class have less than 20 students which really makes for a dynamic and involved learning experience. There is a mix of all demographics which is a more realistic experience to what students will eventually see in college. The atmosphere is positive, productive, and caring. While ICHS is a Catholic school, there are many non-Catholics attending who simply want a top education for their child. You will not be hit over head with Catholic doctrine, rather the religious education deals more with modern day issues, morality, and how to apply Christian and Catholic principals to everyday living. There is a large Christian Service movement in the school and they are always looking for ways to help those in need. This school is a place where students are nutured and given many opportunities to achieve both in and outside the classroom. The results speak for themselves. Students are accepted at some of the best schools in the country and go on to become productive and successful adults.
