John Barry Elementary is a neighborhood school located on the Northwest Side of Chicago serving approximately 800 students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6. We have a Dual Language-One Way Spanish Program being rolled out since 2013. We use a Balanced Literacy Program and integrated units of study in Science and Social Studies. We use Eureka Math as a means to support the development of the Mathematical Practices and pride on having a strong Social Emotional Program using Positive Discipline and Responsive Classroom as well as the integration of the Second Step Curriculum and Playworks. We have a before and after school day care program available to our parents for a nominal fee.
