Chase School provides a comprehensive bilingual/monolingual academic program for students in grades Pre-K-8th grades.  Our Salmon P. Chase Elementary Schoolhighly-qualified teaching and support staff provide students with opportunities to be successful, as learners as well as individuals, using a variety of researched-based instructional practices.  We motivate students to do their best and encourage them to continue to strive for excellence.

Chase is proud to announce that Our Spanish Bilingual/Blended Monolingual Head Start Programs received the Gold Circle of Quality Award.   Our pre-school programs provide a high-quality developmentally appropriate curriculum that includes literacy, math, science, art, and technology. 

Chase has partnered Citizen Schools who provide additional enrichment and academic support for our middle school students.  Citizen Schools has a staff of teachers who will be partnering with our classroom teachers between 8:15 AM and 3:15 PM, and teach enrichment classes from 3:15-5:30 pm.  During Citizen Schools, students receive academic support which consists of homework help and individualized instruction that is geared towards promoting academic growth.  An additional program element consists of apprenticeships which are classes on career-oriented topics taught by volunteers  from Chicago businesses and organizations such as Google, Fidelity, Motorola, United Airlines to name a few.  By partnering with Citizen Schools, we hope to continue improving the excellent growth we have seen from our students and to motivate them by exposing them to future opportunities.

Children’s Home and Aid (CHASI) continues to partner with Chase and provides a variety of wellness programs for students and parents.

Over the course of the school year, we offer a variety of field experiences for all of our students through field trips and excursions.  Each year, the 7th grade students travel to our state capital, Springfield.   The 8th grade students are provided the opportunity to participate in a trip to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
