The New Field curriculum includes the Lucy Caulkins' Reading and Writing Units. These incorporate the readers workshop and writing workshop instructional model. We also utilize Eureka Math, and FOSS Science. Teachers and students are a community of learners committed to using evidence-based strategies and collaborative practices to foster a respectful and safe place, where each student's strengths and needs are addressed. The school is also committed to the arts and has partnerships that include the Old Town School of Folk Music, the Chicago Children’s Choir, Lifeline Theatre, Ravinia, and Design Dance.
