Science Academy Of Chicago Reviews
My child is in second grade and loves coming to the school everyday. It has an amazing atmosphere. I feel comfortable reaching out to the staff anytime.
SAC is great school -my daughter goes to this school since 2009. She loves this school. Class size is small so each student gets attention from teachers and gets help in their home work/projects.
I love this school. My daughter learned a lot in a year. The improvement in her academic level was amazing. Pros: Small class size, affordable price, kind staff, accelerated curriculum, diverse demographics. Cons: The building in Niles was small and not efficient. But, they're moving to Mt. Prospect this year and if they can finish on time, the new building will be amazing.
Science Academy is a wonderful school. The class sizes are small, the academics are strong and the environment is safe and nuturing for our children. If you can get a spot in the school its a great investment in your child!
My son and daughter went to Science Academy of Chicago, he was able to get in the top High School in IL (Northside College Prep). He was very well prepared for high school. My daughter went to one of the top High School in Chicago (Jones College Prep). My little daughter goes to Sceince Academy of Chicago, she was in the 1st grade but performed the (2.5) 3rd grade level in standardized test. It is worth to pay for the future of my kids..
Want to help you child excel & reach their goals then SAOC is your school!
From the warm welcoming greeting by Ms. Selvi (the school's offical "mother" of all the kids) who greets everyone, parent, child, grandparents, older children who don't attend the school by name (that she remembers EVERYONE amazes me)
To the greetings from all the teachers & principal. You are always welcome to come in & observe what is going on.
The teachers are there for your child 24/7. Assisting with tutoring after school and even on weekends, all year long. You have the teachers email, phone numbers so you can alway be in contact with them for any questions. They encourage a student with postive feedback, never putting a child down.
The programs they offer really challenge them to think!
With small classroom size they can offer more one on one time. Your child will not get lost in the shuffle!
Some of the things my son is learning in grammer school are things I learned in high school!
I wish there was a school like this when I was his age.
He actually gets up before the alarm, is always ready to go to school (looks forward to it) and there are some days I can't get him to leave!
Science Academy is great school. My daughter has been at this school since 2007 and we have no intentions to move to another school. They have small classes where every student is taken into account during the class and I think that is a big plus. School is taking students to field trips (ice skating is coming up my daughter is so excited) so often that I don't need to worry about planning more for my daughter's fun, I am sure working parents would appreciate that. I am very happy with my daughter's results academically, she got at her IOWA test from last year. It was way higher than an average score for 4 th grader. Her level of performance and grades were higher than 5 and 6 graders. I was so happy for her and I couldn't ask more...
My son is a first grader at Science Academy of Chicago. He started there without going to kindergarten and he can read and write quite qood, and he got very good at math. Being in a very small class, he gets a lot of attention. As I read from other parents’ reviews; my son also wakes up early telling me that he wants to go early, and wants to stay longer even after school hours. We can’t be happier than that, definitely an excellent school.
It is a great school and the teachers are incredibly dedicated. They are constantly looking at innovations, new recources and very open to dialogue with the parents. I can follow my child's progress, homework, projects and grades online and know at any time how he is doing. I cannot praise this school enough.
