  • This school I rate top in Berwyn... My daughter was going to a Chicago public school & her grades were average. But since she started coming to this school her grades have gone up & ISAT score have exceeded standard. She is in an advance grade level class... This school has excellent tutoring & afterschool programs to help out the students & parents...
