    About Us

    For over 100 years, Chicago Park School has served as a place where kids learn and play. Our once single room schoolhouse has grown into a fourteen room, K-8 campus, with a  full-sized gym/multi-purpose room, state of the art Makerspace with 3D printers, music/drama room, and an Academy STEAM lab.  In 2011, the District added a second school, the Chicago Park Community Charter School.  Our district students, along with our charter school students, benefit from an exceptional on-campus standards-based program that focuses on providing a rigorous 21st Century education with an emphasis in math, science, technology and character development.

    Testimonials

    What Parents are Saying

    "My two boys have been attending Chicago Park Elementary school for the past 4 years. I have been very impressed with the teaching staff, and the education my kids have been receiving. Also with the school being a smaller size, the kids receive more one on one attention. The office staff knows all the children by first name. Chicago park has a very comfortable family feel, I could go on and on. Thank you Chicago Park Elementary."

    "Chicago Park Elementary school holds a special place in our family's heart.
    Being a small school in a country setting presents students with an opportunity to grow relationships both inside and outside the classroom with their peers, teachers and staff. I believe this environment helps students feel safe and confident, so they can grow individually and develop a sense of responsibility for our beautiful community."
