School Description:

Bennett Day School is a PreK-12 school in the heart of Chicago. Founded with progressive roots, Bennett Day will capture the energy that infuses our diverse and vibrant city.  Ours is a school where the fundamental and driving force is the belief that children of all ages learn through questioning, exploring, and discovering.

Each year, Bennett Day School will add one additional grade level including our Middle School program that we plan to open in fall 2020.  Our admissions process for the 2018-19 school year will include PreK (3 year-olds) through fourth grade. Our Middle School Program will include grades 6 through 8, providing a rigorous academic, arts, and athletics program for all students, returning and new, to Bennett Day School.

Students and families at Bennett Day School can expect:

- A child-centered program based on ideas from those of Reggio-Emilia, cognitive understanding inherent to multiple intelligences and global and social awareness central in place-based education;    
- Regular and thoughtful flow of communication between teachers, administration and families Documented evaluation of students at all levels Experienced teachers dedicated to their students, craft and community;    
- Rigorous academic standards and expectations commensurate with top-notch progressive schools around the world; and

As our mission states, we are committed to advancing creativity, leadership, and a love of learning.  
It is our sincerest belief that children attending Bennett Day School will have the space to flourish, play, make mistakes, wipe away the tears and start anew.  Our school, our community, our city – these are the bedrock of who we are, how we learn, and what we teach.
