Our School

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.

What Parents are Saying

"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."

"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."
