This school has been such a blessing to my family. I moved to Chicago for a job and quite quickly had to choose a school for my daughter and a neighborhood for my family. We knew that we wanted a Montessori program but were open to any elementary school that provided a high standard of education. Oscar Mayer has been a dream of a school not only for my daughter but for our entire family.Let me just start by saying that their is so much love within those walls. The commitment of the teachers and faculty is amazing. They have made improvements year over year proving that they take the trust that we bestow on them seriously. My daughter has grown year over year and is excelling in her class and with the material they provide. She loves going to school not only for the amazing friendships she has fostered but the loving and caring environment it provides. I also can't leave this review without mentioning the amazing community of parents that exist at Oscar Mayer. From the paint volunteers to the amazing fundraisers. Last year they raised over a half a million dollars for the school and students. That makes a tremendous difference in the quality education of our students. In a time where budgets continue to shrink the parents of Oscar Mayer continue to give. I just can't say enough about how this school has changed our lives. We have met friends here, our daughter is happy and learning and they continue to empress us year over year. This should be a 10 school not an 8. Thank you Oscar Mayer for helping feel at home in Chicago and giving our daughter and soon to be son an amazing place to learn and thrive.

My son was on the wait list and after not hearing back from the school this past fall we figured that he probably didn't get in. Late Jan/early Feb we received a call that there was room and that he would be able to start in about two weeks if we still wanted to accept the offer. Mayer was our first choice so we decided to go for it. He has only been at the school for a little over a month now and I couldn't be more pleased. He LOVES this school and begs that he go to school even on weekends ! Mayer is not for everyone, it really all depends on your child and how they learn. Mayer is geared towards a more independent/hands on approach. It allows the child to get creative and find different solutions to questions other than the standard ABC approach. This school is also VERY organized when it comes to drop off/pick up of your child. There are many parents involved in may aspects of the school. Though the school asks for donations, they are strictly OPTIONAL , no one will treat you or your child different if you decide not to donate. The only reason I am giving this school a 4 is because my child has only been here for a little over a month.

Oscar Mayer where do I start. This is my daughters 1st year at Oscar Mayer. She has gone from great student to below average.Honestly the program is not fit for her not only because she is used to a more ordered approach. But my daughter came to me today and said that she needs more help at school. She also said that the teacher pulls names out of a hat to see who she is going to help next...sounds like a funky way of helping students learn. I see that most of the teachers are young with masters degrees but honestly don't know the first thing about children. Yes there can also be some prejudice when it comes to minorities also. It seems that emphasis is more in the arts than the basics such as math and reading. I am utterly shocked and would think this upper class community would furnish a more quality education. Not to mention the constant begging for money for the school...yeah maybe if it was worth it I would. Than God for options and may God Bless your decision when finding a school for your child. Hopefully by next week my child will be transferred.

I have two kids at Mayer Elementary. This is a great school, with great teachers, and an incredible community. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else.

We transferred our 1st grader from a private school to Oscar Mayer this school year and could not be happier with the results! The Montessori approach has been a perfect fit for our son, who is a more hands-on learner. The teachers are dedicated, supportive and responsive. Ironically his class size (26) is the same as it would have been in his private school, plus every EL1 class (1st - 3rd grades) has an assistant, so his student/teacher ratio is low (13:1). The parents seem very involved and welcoming! We also love the sense of community that revolves around the school. There are a lot of opportunties to get involved and Friends of Mayer is very committed towards fundraising to keep OM one of the most sought-after schools in CPS.
