The Chicago Friends School community is happy to join our neighbors once again in the annual Edgewater Neighborhood Garage Sale.

These recycled shoes protect children in Uganda from a dangerous parasite.
 
Chicago Friends School is a coeducational elementary school in Edgewater. We are offering kindergarten through sixth grade for the 2017-2018 school year, expanding one grade per year to grade eight. Chicago Friends School is guided by Quaker principles of peace, equality, simplicity, integrity, community, and service.  We welcome Quaker and non-Quaker children of diverse backgrounds.

We provide an educational environment that meets children’s intellectual, social and emotional needs, nurtures relationships, and that fosters a sense of belonging, social awareness, and personal responsibility.

Curriculum Highlights

  • Daily instruction in mathematics and language arts is aligned to the Common Core national framework.
  • Music, visual arts, science, and Spanish are taught by expert special-subject teachers once a week and integrated into other instruction.
  • Formal gym instruction, yoga/mindfulness classes, and outdoor recess develop students’ minds, bodies, social skills, and sense of fair play.
  • An annual curricular theme engages the whole school in project-based, collaborative learning.
  • School-wide service projects reinforce the annual theme and help students to see that they have the power to change the world for the better.
  • Frequent field trips explore the community, city, and region.
  • A school garden teaches about resource use and instills a sense of stewardship.
  • Developing bodies and social selves are nurtured through a socio-emotional and nonjudgmental health and human sexuality curriculum.

Features of the Chicago Friends School Experience

  • Peaceful, collaborative classrooms help our students grow academically, spiritually, and socially. Teachers take time to work with each student’s developing sense of fair play, cooperation, collaboration, and kindness. Students are encouraged to reflect, discuss, take risks, and solve conflicts peacefully.
  • Small classes offer teachers the opportunity to get to know each student well and offer individualized attention and instruction.
  • Differentiated, small-group instruction, defined by ability level rather than chronological age, allows us to nurture each child at his or her optimal ability level.
  • Mixed-age classrooms allow students to grow and develop at their own pace. Research shows that mixed-aged classrooms promote positive social development, empathy, and cooperation skills.
  • Passionate, expert teachers cultivate each child’s unique gifts and encourage healthy risk-taking in a nurturing environment.
