Carl von Linne Elementary School is a neighborhood school with a rich tradition of serving students in the Avondale community for over 120 years. Partnerships with Hubbard Street Dance, Joffrey Ballet, The Chicago Jazz Philharmonic, Urban Gateways, Forward Momentum Chicago and Communities in Schools help to provide a comprehensive, integrated Fine Arts program. In addition, Linne offers an inquiry based science curriculum with two dedicated science labs, state of the art technology with two computer labs, 1:1 student to laptop ratio, iPads, and interactive white boards in all classrooms. An optional Spanish/English Dual Language Program gives students the opportunity to become biliterate. A full culinary arts kitchen, ceramics room and kiln, dance studio, and music room support our mission of educating the whole child.
