We believe that it is in the critical elementary school years when children acquire the academic skills and joy of learning which will serve them all of their lives. Rigorous, highly participatory programs challenge youngsters to become competent, engaged learners. Hard work is expected. Risk taking is encouraged. The Chicago City Day School has high expectations for its students. The enthusiasm with which students meet these expectations attests to the richness and vitality of the educational program.
All teachers have advanced degrees and prior teaching experience.
