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.
Our Mission & Vision
Our mission is to provide a well-rounded program that prepares students for 21st century success in all areas of academics, and by offering unique and individualized services in math, science, technology, and character development. We emphasize a safe and nurturing environment, and graduate responsible students who respect the rights of others.
We are open to all students and families committed to our mission/educational vision. The District honors the uniqueness of each individual, welcoming students from diverse backgrounds in order to build a strong, inclusive community and prepare all students for lives in a multicultural society.
The district offers specialized programs in Science, Math, Technology, and Character Development. Our schools emphasize good citizenship through a hands-on character development program that is integrated into the core curriculum.
We are committed to maintaining high expectations for academic, social and personal performance. Maintaining a small and supportive school environment is a top priority.
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."
