Education.jpgThe 1st Ward offers exceptional academic opportunities throughout our neighborhood public schools. Whether it is gifted programs or after-school programs, all of the 14 public elementary schools and 3 high schools work to enrich their curriculums in order to deliver high quality education to our children.  Alderman Moreno, working alongside Chicago Public Schools (CPS), has assisted with the allocation of more resources and programs to all of our schools and is committed to further expansion of educational programs for all students. 

In the City of Chicago, public schools employ different strategies to accommodate the needs of all students.  Schools are generally classified by type and offer a range of specialties or concentrations.  The majority of schools are defined by boundary area. Neighborhood schools accept kids within a neighborhood boundary area, compared with magnet or cluster magnet schools which have a broader geographic boundary and finally charter schools which typically do not have a specified boundary area.

Schools can have fine and performing arts concentrations, math and science academies, reading and writing programs, and even language immersion schools.  Our office, as well as CPS, offers school fairs periodically throughout the year to learn more about programs offered at our local schools.  Neighborhood school fairs offer a unique opportunity to speak with parents and administrators and even schedule a time to take a tour of a particular school.  Make sure to check out the community calendar for any upcoming school events and come out to support your local neighborhood school.
