Inquiry. Excitement. Integrity.
These are the hallmarks of an education at The Children's School, an independent elementary school located in the near west suburbs of Chicago. As progressive educators, we engage children in hands-‐on learning, creative problem-‐solving, and cooperative decision-‐making. Our students work both individually and collaboratively to explore topics of interest within a diverse, literature-‐rich curriculum that nurtures their intellectual curiosity. They delve into extended, multidisciplinary projects that demonstrate their learning, from filming a 1940s-‐style newsreel to building a model "green" city. And they investigate the world beyond the school walls, learning what it means to be citizens in the 21st century. At The Children's School, children are given the opportunity and the responsibility to become caring individuals, reflective thinkers, and lifelong learners.
We strive every day to honor children's voices and to celebrate the joy of learning. Join us for an Open House and discover what makes The Children's School special.
