Open Quote I love this school. The kids are so good to each other, you can see it on the playground. The communication is great, and so far we have been pleased with both our son's Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers. I look forward to watching how the curriculum becomes more challenging as we move to the upper grades, some of the grading seems a bit easy here. Overall though the teachers do a great job managing large classes (26) and giving kids individual assessments. A huge benefit of going to this school is that Alcott is partnered with JCC which offers an amazing after school program. Very supportive of working parents! Close Quote

Open Quote They have talented specials teachers: for science, music, art, gym, and MANDARIN.
Parents raised close to 1/4 million dollars to maintain the quality of the building and education.

Not a typical CPS school. It is a premium site for education. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
