  • I attended Gunsaulus KG-8th grade Class of '88 and have nothing bad to say about this learning institution. I think it's the best Grammar school in the CPS system by far!!

  • I hope you dont believe thepost above. It has been in a downward spiral since the beginning of the 2008 schoolyear. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE.
