Open Quote This is school has pioneered programs for accomodations for district wide special services. The school is very young and enrollment is still growing in small increments, however; it houses brilliant teachers from many age groups and genders. The students have art shows that feature exceptional creativity and spontaniety. The music and art programs are enriching to the students enrolled there. Teacher activisim is present and prominent too, they recently started a Children's garden which can be used by all the schools in the district.
It is partly funded by a grant as well as by contributions from builders in the newly developed neighborhood.
Grande park houses a large diversity of students. Students with mild to severe disabilities, these students benefit from visits from the Therapy Dogs from the local Edward's Hospital, a Spanish Language/dual language program as well as a newly launched school newspapaper which will be run by the older 4th and 5th grade students. The students publish hardcover books which are made by parent volunteers and they often arrange for authors to visit the school to inspire young writers.

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.
