John Laidlaw Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

November 02, 2017 Submitted by a parent
I currently have 2 children at Laidlaw and am very impressed with the level of tailored instruction that they each receive within their classrooms. My advanced child is being pulled out and challenged, and my average child is being pushed to do better. I also am amazed at the number of aids available and moving into classrooms to help children with special needs or with behavior or other requirements. The teachers stay on top of emerging trends, but have flexibility to choose how to use within the classroom. Some give homework to 2nd graders, some don't.. but all of the kids are thriving. Good programming at the school, but would like to see more after-school options. Great technology and music program.

Laidlaw is a great school if you have a parent staying home full-time. If you are a single parent or in a dual-working household, I would recommend looking at Forest Hills or Field Park if you'd like to reside in Western Springs. These schools offer more services to accommodate working parents and show more willingness to consider the needs of working parents. If you're looking in the area generally, I'd recommend considering La Grange or Hinsdale, both of which have programs designed for working parents. Overall, I feel that my children are receiving a good education (and there is a library, computer center, and AC – I’m not sure why another poster stated that Laidlaw does not have these amenities). However, the leadership at Laidlaw makes it difficult to be a working parent.

Amazing staff, great programs. I am a life long resident, I am also a teacher in another district so my standards are pretty exact. I am not sure what the other posts where suggesting about poor building quality, jaded teachers, and lack of accommodation for non "average" kids. The last statement being boldly untrue. My son is both gifted and receives special services. Thusly, he works with both the enrichment teacher and various special education staff. Anyway, my point is It's a good school. What I like most about it: it still has a small town-people know you and like you-Halloween party-gingerbread house decorating-room moms-kids are happy to be there feel meets educational excellence and accountability. Hard balance to find these days.

I have two children who are attending Laidlaw Elementary. If you have perfectly "average" students, this school is perfect! If your child is gifted or has significant needs, be prepared to be overly frustrated with this school. The classrooms are over crowded and the school is run down. There is no dedicated library, computer or lunchrooms and no AC. I gave the school and average rating based on the fact that there are some excellent teachers there. Just pray you get one of the newer teachers as the older tenure ones just spend their time getting advanced degrees so that they can retire with a higher pension. They are unapproachable and don't listen to any concerns that a parent may have. These are not isolated incidents. So all in all, if your child is average or slightly above average, great school but if your child falls below or high above, avoid!

I have a 17 year old and 2 younger boys-6 & 8. All my children have gone to Laidlaw. Although there was a principal transition last year, it has proven to be be wonderful for the kids and the parents. The education, community involvement and caring my children receive from this school and it's teachers is beyond compare. One day we'll have to move for my husband's job. I can only pray that we find a comparable school the next place we live.
