A CPS Neighborhood School



21st Century Community Learning Center

21st Century provides academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours to help students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math, and other educational services to the families of participating children.



Playworks teaches children to resolve their own conflicts that arise at recess and carry over to the classroom, improving school climate both on and off the playground. We help transform recess into a safe, fun and inclusive time that gets students active and engaged so they can return to the classroom focused and ready to learn.
