Great curriculum and enhancements, from Mandarin to yoga to STEM fairs, music, art and tech classes, great after school options.

Alcott has a wonderful principal, great teachers, and some of the most supportive and active parents (including "Friends of" group) in the city. And, with the brand new, multi-million dollar outdoor space, has some of the best sports infrastructure in the entire city.

My sons love Alcott. The teachers are fabulous and the parent association is very active.

My child has been at Alcott for 4 years and we are incredibly lucky to have found this amazing community! The school is one of only a handful of PK-12 CPS schools and has recently unveiled a 5-year strategic plan to ensure growth for all students and move the school from great to greatest. The new administration is truly terrific - the principal is professional, engaged, pragmatic, decisive, focused on data-driven instruction, and very open to parent involvement. We have a very active, welcoming community that encourages volunteerism and demonstrates to our students what can be done when an engaged parent base works closely with a focused administration to make a CPS school the best that it can be.

We are a family that just arrived to the US. Our kids are attending Alcott and we are very happy with the school and the great community that conforms it. We reccomend it!

We have been at Alcott for 10 years...so far! It's the greatest. The teachers really care about the students, and the fact that the kids get art, music and drama as part of the curriculum is just wonderful.

My fifth grader started attending Alcott in Kindergarten and we have loved the school ever since. The staff, including the teachers and principle are outstanding. I couldn't find any school with a more committed team of educators. Our test scores have improved every year since we have been there, but more importantly, the children are learning how to become life-long learners. The parental involvement is phenomenal and together, every element is what makes this school first-rate.



- a parent
Parents and community are extremely involved. They help raise school funds under a fabulous principal who is willing to work with the families and within the public school system to do what is best for the children.

My grandchildren are the 3rd generation attending Alcott School. Obviously we're pleased.
