We believe that the goal of education is to fuel the innate desire to learn by offering engaging, cooperative, and authentic experiences. This approach equips students to view the world as a place of opportunity where change is possible. Through a deep commitment to social-emotional support, The Family Matters School invites children to become courageous learners who understand that by trying new things and making mistakes, they continue to grow.
Children at The Family Matters School will develop the skills for academic success as endorsed by the Illinois State Board of Education. Our inaugural class, starting in the fall of 2019, offers an alternative education option for Kindergarteners in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago.
